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

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

You may wish to consider installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only be a suitable boiler 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only is 25 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would likely recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 - size in millimetres

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 measures 855 mm high and 370 mm wide by a depth of 600 mm.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 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 18/25 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 is rated as 90% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 come with?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 boiler.

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

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

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only is 25 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 are

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 boiler is 855 mm high, 370 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 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.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 18/25 heat only protect the environment?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.
