Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri - regular, system or combi?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only is 18 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri size

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep in size.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri has been given a rating of 92% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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 18Ri is "A".

What is the warranty period for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Should I choose a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler 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 18Ri heat only boiler has an output level of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri 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.


What are the dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri boiler?

The dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri are 600 mm [H] x 390 mm [W] x 270 mm [D].

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri 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.

Does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only protect the environment?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

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

Would choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri is "TBC".

What warranty does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri heat only boiler come with?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 18Ri is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
