Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 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 50/70 heat only is 70 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 boiler

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 is 1,012 mm tall, 520 mm wide, and 815 mm deep in size.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only good for the environment?

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.

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.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 was given a 91% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

What warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler come with?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 fit into?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

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 a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only is 70 kW, so which types of property is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 dimensions

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 measures 1,012 mm high and 520 mm wide by a depth of 815 mm.

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The oil bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

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.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 was given an efficiency rating of 91% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Am I covered if my Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Danesmoor Utility 50/70 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
