With a clear focus on renewables and sustainability, Firebird has dedicated significant resources and invested heavily in developing products with increased fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and that use more renewable and sustainable fuel sources.
Firebird has worked closely with Westmeath building contractor Mike Maloney, in recent years to deliver renewable NZEB compliant projects.
“For us as developers and building contractors, it can be challenging to ensure we comply with new regulations, particularly in relation to new builds, which is why it has made my life so much easier to work with Firebird,” Mr Maloney stated. “I know and trust Firebird to deliver the expertise and the quality products that are required to meet today’s standards.”
An example of Firebird’s recent work in renewables for home heating was the completion of 16 new builds on a public development in Athlone, Co. Westmeath. Firebird secured the contract to provide the full heating systems and ensure the properties complied with NZEB standards and regulations.
Their team brought the properties to the near-zero energy efficiency of A2 using the full range of Firebird products that included the installation of Firebird’s Enviroair air source heat pumps, with a smart weather compensator controller and high-tech intelligent heating controls, as well as Firebird’s supporting products such as its mechanical ventilation systems, Envirocyl Quick Plumb cylinder units, underfloor heating and radiators.
Firebird also provided its own in-house engineer who was on site and project managed the heating system installation from start to finish, working closely with the developer, contractor and installer to ensure maximum efficiency.
The developer was so impressed with the ‘one stop shop’ service that Firebird delivered, from the system to the technical support and warranty, that further business is already in the pipeline as a result.
“The developer really valued Firebird’s service to have our expertise on hand, on site each day,” Nick Phelan, Renewables Manager with Firebird, stated. “You cannot underestimate the importance of having that technical support there as a backup. Our engineer provided technical advice and was there to provide the answers to any queries that the installer or contractor had, minimising any downtime. Projects like this, where we help deliver homes with future-proof heating systems while building trusted relationships working in partnership with the contractor and developer, are really rewarding.”
This innovative and personable approach is just one of the reasons why the company is a market leader in home heating. By always adapting and always developing practical world class solutions, Firebird continues to set new standards of sustainability for the home heating market.
