Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri - standard, combi or system?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is certainly one to consider.

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 Ri 15Ri heat only suitable 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 gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What are the proportions of a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep in size.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only good for the environment?

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.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri was rated at 92% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is "A".

What is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri 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 the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri 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 Ri 15Ri heat only is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri have?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep in size.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is a condensing gas 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 gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas 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 Ri 15Ri heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only be a suitable choice?

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
