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

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

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

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

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

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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only's output is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for 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.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

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

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

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of "90%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 Utility 12/18 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

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.
