The Advantage of Diesel Boilers

Diesel boilers are a cost-efficient heating option for many homeowners because they are very energy efficient and have relatively low running costs, ranging from 14.8-16.5¢/kW depending on the boiler and the location of the home. They are also a versatile heat source in that they can heat both radiator and underfloor systems, and they can be placed inside or outside the home according to the needs of the homeowners.

Commercial diesel boilers, designed to meet the heating demands of commercial buildings, are also available in both indoor and outdoor models.

Firebird Diesel Boilers

Central Heating New Zealand offers a range of quality European diesel boilers from Firebird, which have proven to be reliable and effective heat sources for central heating in New Zealand. Firebird provides the best diesel heating solutions possible for each central heating installation. These diesel boilers are floor standing and, typically, they measure 900mm high x 600mm wide x 600mm deep—about the same size as a modern washing machine. All models are flued externally and are convenient to place inside the house due to the compact size and virtually silent operation of the boiler. Typical positions for the boiler are in an attached garage, laundry or cupboard. External models are also available which are sited outside and come with an integral flue.

Diesel boilers require the installation of a fuel tank outside the house. Local authority laws sometimes require a bund or secondary containment for the fuel tank to be installed as well. Fuel tanks are installed on a concrete pad. A 500 litre tank measures 1200mm x 530mm x 900mm—only slightly larger than a four bottle gas station. Diesel fuel delivery is available in all urban and rural areas in New Zealand.

The boiler is controlled by thermostat programmer located within the house. Being fully programmable, desired comfort levels can be achieved at any time of the day or night. Manual override is a standard feature. This control and the reliability of the boiler ensures a hands-off heating system that is easy to use.

One Firebird boiler is capable of heating a spa, swimming pool and domestic hot water while also heating the house.

In order to retain efficiency (and low running costs) and to keep the system running smoothly, we recommend annual servicing for diesel boilers.
