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

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri 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 24Ri boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

This Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler has an output level of 24 kW, so which types of property would it be 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.


What are the dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler?

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler is 600 mm high, 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 - 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.

Does the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only protect the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

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

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri has an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

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

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 24Ri - system, regular or combi?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only's output level is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would recommend that the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler is a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri size

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri occupies a space of 600 mm high by 390 mm wide and 270 mm deep.

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

We recommend the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the heat only Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri are 92% with a SEDBUK rating 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 24Ri.

Is there a warranty on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri heat only boiler if it breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 7 years is included with the Worcester Bosch Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 24Ri boiler.
