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

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri a combi boiler, system boiler 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.

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 standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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 30Ri heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 30Ri 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 30Ri heat only boiler has an output level of 30 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

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


What is the size of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri?

Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 30Ri is 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only good for the environment?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

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

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri is "A".

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

What type of boiler is Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Ri 30Ri - system, regular or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Would the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only be a suitable boiler 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

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

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


Dimensions of the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri boiler

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri measures 600 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

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

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

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

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

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 30Ri was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri has a rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri heat only boiler if it breaks down?

The Worcester Bosch Greenstar Ri 30Ri boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.
