make these homes almost carbon neutral immediately. Firebird’s trials of HVO for home heating in Ireland and Northern Ireland have proved how household greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by 90% and with CO 2 emissions decreasing by up to six tonnes annually.” The installation of a Firebird HVO compatible boiler is similar to a standard Firebird boiler in many respects, but there are some differences in the components of the boiler installation and how it operates. Another difference is in the burner use as the Firebird HVO boiler has a modified burner that is designed to handle the different viscosity of HVO. The burner is also designed to operate at a higher temperature, which is necessary to vaporise the HVO. Speaking about the upgrade in his heating system, Karl said, “I couldn’t be happier with my new HVO-ready boiler from Firebird. Over the past two months, I’ve found HVO to be an incredibly sustainable and efficient alternative to traditional kerosene. We have seen a 35% reduction in our heating bills so far. With Firebird’s innovative technology, I’m confident that I’m doing my part for the environment while enjoying our warm and comfortable home.” Firebird installer, Oliver provided his expertise and was eager to contribute to

the project. Firebird worked with Oliver to identify the best appliance in terms of size and suitability and the project was delivered in less than two days. Speaking about the project, Oliver said, “Working with Firebird to install Karl’s new Envirogreen Popular 44kW boiler was a great experience. It was great to have Firebird’s technical team on hand for any questions, as even though the installation of the Firebird boiler was very straightforward, the upgrade of the heating system itself was complex. The team’s expertise and dedication to sustainability made the installation process seamless, and we’re thrilled with the results.

HVO is a game-changer in terms of efficiency and reduced emissions, it is odourless and much cleaner to work with compared to kerosene. It is great to see a local Cork company leading the way in sustainable home heating.” This innovative approach to problem solving is just one of the reasons why Firebird is a market leader in home heating; always adapting and always developing practical world-class solutions with a mission to set new standards of sustainability for the home heating market.
