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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 50 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW stands at 825 mm tall, 440 mm wide and 365 mm deep.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to 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 help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 50kW was rated at 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW has been given an ERP rating of "A".

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?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Should I install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 50 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler in would be 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 50kW in millimetres

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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW 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 50kW heat only environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade 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.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW is rated "A".

What warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life Regular 50kW heat only boiler come with?
