Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

System boilers are very popular for properties with limited or no loft space or when homeowners want to keep the space for a loft conversion. This is because, unlike heat only boilers, they don’t require a cold-water tank - however, system boilers do need a hot water cylinder (often installed in an airing or landing cupboard).

Instead of the traditional cold-water tanks, system boilers use their built-in circulating pumps to heat the water needed for your taps and radiators. This also makes them an easier choice for engineers to install as there is one less large component to find space for and fit.

Like a regular boiler, you need to use a control panel to control a system boiler. Set the times when you want central heating and hot water to be available, such as in the morning when there might be greater demand for showers, and it will be there. Although hot water is not available on-demand like with a combi boiler, once the water has been heated it will stay in the hot water cylinder until it’s used up.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

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


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 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 System 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 System 12/18 condensing or non-condensing?

This Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers require a hot water cylinder to work - the cylinder stores and keeps water warm for use throughout the day. Hot water can be distributed to multiple showers and taps simultaneously, making system boilers suitable for larger families and properties with more than one bathroom.

System boilers differ from standard boilers in that they do not require a cold water tank, making them suitable for properties with no loft space or if you are planning a loft conversion. As the boiler's major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and no water tank is required, system boilers are easier to install than regular boilers.

This type of boiler does not heat water instantly like a combi boiler - instead, you need to use the control panel to set the times when you want heating and hot water to be available for your home.

Should I install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 system boiler in my home?

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 System 12/18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 system Greenstar Danesmoor System 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 System 12/18 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 measures 855 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

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 System 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 System 12/18 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 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 System 12/18 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

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

The energy efficiency rating of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 is 90% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

Does a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 system boiler come with a warranty period?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System 12/18 System boiler covers you for 2 years.
