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

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

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 is certainly one to consider.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler from the Greenstar Danesmoor Utility range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler has an output rate of 18 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 measures 855 mm in height by 370 mm in width by 600 mm in depth.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 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.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

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

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics 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 Utility 12/18 has an efficiency rating of 90% with 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 Utility 12/18 is rated "A".

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

Which category of boiler does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 fit into?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 is a oil heat only boiler.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

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

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 Utility 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 measures 855 mm in height by 370 mm in width by 600 mm in depth.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

Condensing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on oil.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

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

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to 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.

If you decide to install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 Utility 12/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of 90%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade 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 Utility 12/18 is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 boiler through PlumbProud.
