Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

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.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only's output is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri?

The size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri boiler is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri – non-condensing or condensing?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri 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 choosing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

The energy efficiency rating of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri is 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri lasts for 7 years.

Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri a regular, combi or system boiler?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 30Ri is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only be a suitable choice?

Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri has an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".
