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?

You might want to consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 for your house or flat if you are looking for a 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 the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler is 18 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 is 855 mm high by 370 mm wide by 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 Utility 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 this Worcester Bosch boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

How does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 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".

How many years' warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only come with?

Worcester Bosch offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18.

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

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

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

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

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

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is 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.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor 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.

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

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

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

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of 90% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18, the ERP rating is "A".

Will I be covered if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 12/18 heat only breaks down?
