Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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 50kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler is 50 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW is 825 mm in height, 440 mm in width and 365 mm in depth.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

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 50kW.

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.

How does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only rate environmentally?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures 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 50kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW, the ERP rating is "A".

What length of warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW come with?

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW.

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.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler has an output rate of 50 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW 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.


What size is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW boiler?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW is 825 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW – condensing or non-condensing?

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

How does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only rate environmentally?
