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?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

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

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 Regular 12/18 heat only boiler is 18 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 has the following dimensions - 855 mm high, 370 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 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 Regular 12/18 heat only a good choice for the environment?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

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.

Will choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine 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 Regular 12/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of "90%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 Regular 12/18 has a rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 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 combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is a 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.


What are the dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 boiler?

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

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

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

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

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

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

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 Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

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

Will I be covered if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only breaks down?

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