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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only be a suitable choice of boiler 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 45kW heat only is 45 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW measures 825 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many 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.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is "A".

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 worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler right 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 45kW heat only's output at 45 kW, which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is 825 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep in size.

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

Condensing gas boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW 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 does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only rate environmentally?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%.

The ratings awarded to the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW are 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 45kW is "A".
