Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 System boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system boiler has an output level of 25 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility oil Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 - system, regular or combi?

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 might be a suitable option for you.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system's output at 25 kW, which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 occupies a space of 855 mm high by 370 mm wide and 600 mm deep.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the system Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 boiler energy efficient?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 was given an efficiency rating of 90% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor System Utility 18/25 is "A".
