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

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler may be worth considering.

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.

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

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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler is 18 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only Greenstar Danesmoor External would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18?

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 provide homeowners with more indoor space (they're installed outdoors) and reduce noise pollution (you can't really hear them from inside your house). They are also easier for engineers to work on if needed, while carbon monoxide leaks are less likely to pose a safety threat to your family because the gas disperses outside.

This model's weatherproof housing ensures protection from the British climate, reducing the likelihood of water ingress and rusting. And, since the oil is stored outdoors, there is minimal risk of leakage occurring inside your home that can cause significant damage as well as unpleasant odours which are hard to eliminate.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

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

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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.

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.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is rated as 90% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 is "A".

If the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Worcester Bosch Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler.

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

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

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

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

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your oil than you need to.

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

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 occupies a space of 950 mm high by 565 mm wide and 600 mm deep.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 offer homeowners more indoor space and, unlike their indoor counterparts, they don't create internal noise pollution.

They also provide service engineers with much easier access and are supplied with a sturdy waterproof casing to protect the boiler from rusting and water ingress.

An external boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 carries a much-reduced risk of any carbon monoxide entering your home and, because the oil is stored outdoors, there is little to no risk of internal oil leakage damaging the inside of the house and the unpleasant odours that oil leaks cause.

Is this Worcester Bosch boiler non-condensing or condensing?

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

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil 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 oil to generate the power they need to operate.

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

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

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.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

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".

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 Danesmoor External 12/18 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 heat only boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor External 12/18 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
