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

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

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is one you may wish to consider.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Should I install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler in my home?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler has an output of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

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.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is 950 mm [H] by 565 mm [W] by 600 mm [D] in size.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is an external floor-standing heat only boiler which will be installed outside of your home. Other than providing you with more indoor space and reduced noise, it’s much easier for a service engineer to access it if it goes wrong and there’s also a lower risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 are shielded in weatherproof housing and because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and odours that are hard to remove.

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

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

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

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

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

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?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 was given an efficiency rating of 90% and a SEDBUK grading 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 Danesmoor External 12/18 has a rating of "A".

If the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is supplied with 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 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

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

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 operate reliably and consistently outdoors because of their solid weatherproof housing designed to protect against rusting and water ingress. And, because they're not installed inside your property, you save valuable indoor space.

Internal oil boilers can leak and, when they do, they damage your property and leave unpleasant odours which are hard to remove. An external boiler eliminates the risk of indoor oil leaks and the danger of carbon monoxide getting into your home is also greatly reduced. An external boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access when it requires servicing or repair.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External oil Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.
