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

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

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

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler suitable 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".

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 Regular 12/18 heat only boiler has an output of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

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


Where will the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 fit in my house?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is 855 mm [H] by 370 mm [W] by 600 mm [D] in size.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

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

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 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 Regular 12/18 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

What is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

You might want to consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

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 standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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.

Should I install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler in 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 Regular 12/18 heat only has an output of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18's dimensions are 855 mm [H] x 370 mm [W] x 600 mm [D].

If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your oil bills.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

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

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only be a suitable choice?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is rated "A".

What is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
