Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW - system, regular or combi?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW might be a suitable option for you.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only's output at 40 kW, which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW boiler

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW boiler is 825 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

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.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 40kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW has a rating of "A".

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Should I choose a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler for my house or flat?

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 - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only is 40 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW - size in millimetres

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.
