Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 45 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is 825 mm [H] by 440 mm [W] by 365 mm [D] in size.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW 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.

How environmentally friendly is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

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 45kW heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW 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.
