Firebird Leading the Charge on Renewable Home Heating

Firebird Leading the Charge on Renewable Home Heating

04 March 2021

Firebird’s expertise and reputation in the area of renewables has given it the edge in the home heating market with many clients choosing Firebird to take the lead and project manage the design and implementation of renewable home heating solutions.


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 products 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 compliance 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 in a public development in Athlone, Co. Westmeath.


Firebird secured the contract to provide the full heating systems ensuring the properties comply with NZEB standards and regulations.


Firebird’s team brought the properties to the near-zero energy efficiency of A2 using the full range of Firebird products from 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, including 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 and its 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 for Firebird 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 Firebird is a market leader in home heating; always adapting, always developing practical world class solutions with a mission to set new standards of sustainability for the home heating market.
