Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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 24Ri heat only is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri gas Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only protect 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.

Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a band rating of "A".

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.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 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.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri 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 gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only is 24 kW, so which types of property is this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri are

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri condensing or non-condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri 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 24Ri heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri is "A".

If the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 7 years is included when you purchase the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler through PlumbProud.
