Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular 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 27Ri.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Should I install a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler is right for where you live 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 of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only is 27 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri boiler?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 27Ri is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the heat only Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri boiler energy efficient?

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

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri scored an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler?

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

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 27Ri heat only boiler a suitable option 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 - 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 27Ri heat only is 27 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri in millimetres

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri measures 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri 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.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 27Ri was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".
