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

What type of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 - regular, system or combi?

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

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 the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler from the Greenstar Danesmoor Regular range a suitable choice 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 Regular 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of 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].

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 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 Regular 12/18 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

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 after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 has an efficiency rating of 90% with a SEDBUK grade 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.

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

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 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 - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only boiler be 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 size is a 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.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

Is this Worcester Bosch boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

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

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18 has been given a rating of 90% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Regular 12/18, the ERP rating is "A".

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