Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW has the following dimensions - 825 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

How energy efficient is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW.

Is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only covered by a warranty?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler has an output level of 30 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW are

The measurements of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW are 825 mm by 440 mm by 365 mm.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

How energy efficient is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Would choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW was given an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW has a rating of "A" .

Am I covered if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler breaks down?
