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

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW - system, regular or combi?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW is an option you may wish to 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 suitable for my house or flat?

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

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

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 an appropriate choice for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW is 825 mm in height, 440 mm in width and 365 mm in depth.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

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.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW boiler?

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 30kW boiler is 825 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

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

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.
