Flying high on GREEN ENERGY

Firebird's total heating package ready for NZEB 2020...

At the forefront of technology, Firebird Heating Solutions develop innovative cost-effective, energy-efficient heating solutions that not only meet, but easily exceed today’s stringent legislative requirements.

After December 31, 2020 all occupied new buildings will need to comply with the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) requirement outlined in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. The nearly zero amount of energy required should be covered, to a significant extent, by energy from renewable sources.With Firebird’s expanded range of renewable energy heating solutions already complying with those exacting standards, they continue to lead the way as a market-leading manufacturer and supplier of heating products around the world.

Established in Ireland in 1980, the Firebird name has become synonymous with performance, quality and innovative design. Historically an oil-fired boiler manufacturer, the Firebird product range has been expanded to include Enviroair Heat Pumps, Envirofloor underfloor heating, Radiators, Solar Panels, Quick Fit Unit Pre-Plumbed Cylinders, System Controllers and Mechanical Heat Ventilation Recovery. Firebird Heating Solutions provide total heating packages designed to suit individual requirements for domestic new homes, renovations and commercial buildings.

Recently new to the range is the fully pre-plumbed and pre-wired Quick Fit Unit. This is an indoor product developed by Firebird that allows for the combination of different heat sources in an efficient, space saving and cost-effective manner. It is designed to support the mechanical and electrical contractor, leaving the homeowner stress-free, with a contemporary kitchen-like finished product.

The Quick Fit Unit provides an easy solution when installing a Firebird Enviroair heat pump as a heat source and using their specifically designed, low running cost PCB controller to manage hot water and zoned heating system on gradient curved weather compensation. Priority hot water is enabled on all units, meaning that hot water is available on demand.

The Quick Fit Unit comes with wheels for easy movable access, a built-in drip tray for a quick drain down system with a chain lockable door for child safety. The single heat exchanger cylinder coil has a larger surface area for low temperature appliances, and it can also be manufactured with a twin coil adapted for both a solar and a heat pump. This now takes the emphasis off the higher side of energy demand required in a BER Assessment for water heating and adds to the renewables contribution.
