The heat source is the main component of any central heating system. There are a variety of different sources to choose from and these can be divided into two distinct groups: boilers and air-to-water heat pumps.
Boilers burn a fuel to create the high temperature water that circulates through a central heating system. Gas boilers can provide heat for both radiator and underfloor systems and can use either Natural Gas or LPG.
Air-to-water heat pumps are electric appliances that heat the water that circulates through a central heating system. The air-to-water heat pump converts large amounts of low temperature heat in the air to small amounts of high temperature heat.
EuroHeat offer a range of quality European diesel boilers from Firebird. Like gas boilers the diesel boilers come in both standard efficiency and condensing high efficiency, the latter with up to 98% net efficiency. Indoor models are generally installed in a garage or laundry area. Outdoor models are also available and are ideal when indoor space is limited.
All diesel boilers require a diesel tank for fuel supply. These tanks come in both a 460L and 880L capacity. Depending on where you live, a diesel tank fuel bund may be required by council.
Firebird have also worked with Central Heating New Zealand to deliver a boiler specifically designed for New Zealand’s robust conditions. These boilers are easy to install, commission and service. They are environmentally green due to having low emissions. They use an Elco blue flame technology burner, which is technically superior, reliable and as wide operating tolerances. Elco have been manufacturing burners in Italy for over 90 years.
