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

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


Making space for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is 600 mm high by 390 mm wide by 270 mm deep.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How environmentally friendly is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

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.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 Ri 15Ri was given a 92% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri breaks down?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 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 - regular, system or combi?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 15Ri is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

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 - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler has an output level of 15 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri has the following dimensions - 600 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is this Worcester Bosch boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Ri 15Ri is rated as 92% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 15Ri is rated "A".

How many years' warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only come with?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 15Ri heat only boiler covers you for 7 years.
