Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is certainly one to consider.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only 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 oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only is 18 kW, so which types of property is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 measures 950 mm tall, 565 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

There are several benefits to choosing an external, floor-standing heat only boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18. External boilers free up space indoors and reduce internal noise pollution to almost zero. They are also easier for an engineer to access if a problem develops and an external boiler reduces the chances of carbon monoxide leaking into your property.

External boilers are fitted in weatherproof housing and are perfect for homes that require oil-fired heating because they are not connected to mains gas. Leakage is always a possibility with oil boilers but, as this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler is fitted outside your home, there is likely to be much less damage to your property if it leaks and no odour of oil in your home.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

Would installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 oil bills.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of "90%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 has a rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 a system, regular or combi boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 dimensions

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 has the following dimensions - 950 mm high, 565 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 are housed in a strong weatherproof casing that protects them from rust and water ingress - they also offer much easier access for heating engineers if there is a fault or a repair is needed.

The risk of internal oil leaks and the damage and unpleasant odours they cause is also removed, as is the threat to your family's safety in the event of a carbon monoxide escape (the gas will simply disperse harmlessly into the atmosphere).

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your oil bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only environmentally friendly?

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

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

The energy efficiency rating of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is 90% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

Does a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?
