Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler may be worth considering.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system is 30 kW, so which types of property is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW are

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler is 780 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW 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 energy efficient is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System 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 System 30kW system boiler is 30 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler?

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler is 780 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 365 mm deep.

Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system good for the environment?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler comes with a 8 year warranty for parts and labour.
