All new buildings that are occupied after the 31st of December 2020 will need to comply with the new Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) requirement outlined in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). The nearly zero amount of energy required should be covered to a significant extent by energy from renewable sources. In Technical Guidance Document L (TGDL) 2011, Ireland had a renewables contribution of 10kWh/m2 whereas for TGDL 2019 Ireland must have a renewables contribution of 20% overall.
Firebird Heating Solutions are market-leading manufacturers of heating products with a proven track record built on the global supply of heating systems. Established in Ireland in 1980, the Firebird name has become synonymous with performance, quality and innovative design.
At the forefront of technology, Firebird Heating Solutions are committed to providing cost-effective, energy-efficient heating solutions that not only meet, but easily exceed today’s stringent legislative requirements. Historically an oil-fired boiler manufacturer, the 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 can provide a total heating package designed to suit individual requirements for domestic new homes, renovations and commercial buildings.
New to Firebird is the fully pre-plumbed and pre-wired Quick Fit Unit. This is an indoor product developed by Firebird Heating Solutions and is unique in that it 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.
Firebird Heating Solutions Quick Fit Unit provides an easy solution when installing a Firebird Enviroair heat pump as a heat source and using our specifically designed low running cost PCB controller to manage your 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 safe system and child safety in mind with a chain lockable door. Our 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 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.
