Firebird Solid Fuel Heat Exchanger wins award at 2014 Energy Show


Firebird Solid Fuel Heat Exchanger has won the “highly commended - Best Innovation Product” at the SEAI Energy Awards 2014, which took place on the 12th/13th March at the RDS, Dublin. The award was presented to Nicola Barry, from Firebird, by SEAI Chairman Jim Gannon.


Firebird has been developing and manufacturing heating products in the Múscraí Gaeltacht in Cork for 34 years. The company prides itself on efficient products for the domestic and light commercial market.

Solid fuel heating appliances are steadily regaining popularity. However, heating installers have found them difficult to integrate with modern pressurised heating systems. Firebird’s Solid Fuel Heat Exchanger is an ingenious and simple solution to their problems.

The suitably qualified, solid fuel heating engineer can now safely and easily integrate a solid fuel boiler into a pressurised heating system. The heat exchanger simplifies compliance with building regulations. It also conveniently avoids replacement of domestic hot water tanks, assists where distances between the stove and hot water tank are too far and also where pipework is awkward to get to the hot press.

“We are delighted that our Solid Fuel Heat Exchanger has achieved the award for innovation at the Energy Show and are proud to play a leading role in the heating industry” says Nicola Barry of Firebird Heating Solutions. The Firebird Solid Fuel Heat Exchanger is the latest addition to this Irish company’s catalogue of products, which includes High Efficiency Condensing Oil Fired Boilers, Multifuel Inset Stoves, Range Cookers, Renewable Biomass and Solar Thermal Products.
