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

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

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

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 system's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 System boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 is 855 mm in height, 370 mm in width and 600 mm in depth.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 in the UK, although wall-hung boilers are now the obvious choice for most homeowners wanting more living space. It is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with one that is compact if you'd like to but you should consider that much of the pipework will need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Eventually, your savings on oil bills will pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 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 system Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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.

Would installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 System Utility 12/18 has been given a rating of 90% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 System boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 system boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 is 855 mm in height, 370 mm in width and 600 mm in depth.

Compact wall-hung boilers have been the most popular boiler installation choice over the past two decades. If you have a floor-standing boiler in your home like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18 and you want to replace it with a wall-mounted unit so that you and your family have more space to live, this is possible - however, please note that there may be an additional premium on fitting costs if your current pipework needs replacing.

The savings you make on your oil bills over the coming years will cover the cost of installation completely.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 12/18.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.
