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

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

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler from the Greenstar 8000 Life Regular range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

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

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW measures 825 mm in height and has a width of 440 mm and a depth of 365 mm.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only considered environmentally friendly?

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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW was rated at 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015.

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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

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

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 40 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 40kW heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.
