Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri 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 which 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 a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri stands at 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide and 270 mm deep.

Is this Worcester Bosch boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri scored an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Am I covered if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 7 years with the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri boiler.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri a regular, combi or system boiler?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri might be a suitable option for you.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri 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.

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 gas than you should be.

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

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


How big is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri measures 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri.

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 gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri was given an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri is rated "A".

How many years' warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 12Ri heat only come with?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 12Ri boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
