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

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW - system, regular or combi?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Should I choose a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system 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 System 30kW system is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW measures 780 mm in height by 440 mm in width by 365 mm in depth.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW has a rating of "A".

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

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

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW might be a suitable option for you.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW system boiler the right choice 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 System 30kW system's output at 30 kW, which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW System boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW stands at 780 mm tall, 440 mm wide and 365 mm deep.

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

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?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

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 System 30kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

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

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 System 30kW has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life System 30kW boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.
