Types of Worcester boilers

Whether you want a regular, system or combi boiler, there’s a Worcester boiler to suit your home heating needs and your pocket, ranging from 12kW output to 42kW. Popular regular Worcester boilers include the Greenstar 15Ri (15kW output), Greenstar 40CDi Classic Regular (40kW) and the Greenstar FS 42CDi (42kW).

If you’re looking for a system boiler choices include the Greenstar 15i System (15kW), Greenstar 24i System (24kW) and the Greenstar 30CDi Classic System (30kW). Combination boilers from the Worcester range include the Greenstar 24i Combi (24kW), Greenstar 28CDi Compact (28kW), Greenstar Highflow 550CDi (30kW) and the Greenstar 42CDi Classic (42kW).

Generally speaking if you opt for a combi and you live in an apartment or a terraced house with up to 10 average size radiators and 1 bathroom, you will require a boiler with an output of between 24-27kW. A medium to large 3-4 bed house will require a combi boiler with a higher output of at least 28kW. For a property with one bathroom and up to three bedrooms, a regular or system boiler of 12-15kW will do the job. A larger 4 or 5 bed property with one bathroom and an ensuite shower room will require a boiler with a higher output, typically 30kW.

Worcester boiler benefits and savings

Did you know that boilers are responsible for a good 60% of our annual energy bills? Worcester gas boilers are A-rated for efficiency, and are at least 90% efficient, meaning at least 90% of the fuel they use is turned into heat. In comparison, an old G-rated non condensing boiler is much less efficient and only manages to achieve around 60% efficiency. Key benefits and savings include:

  • Reduce energy bills by up to £340* a year switching to an A-rated boiler
  • Modern condensing boilers convert at least 90% of fuel into heat
  • 5 year boiler guarantee on qualifying models (otherwise it’s a standard 2 years)
  • 10 year guarantee on primary heat exchanger
  • Awarded Which? Best Buy for their Greenstar gas boilers

*If your existing boiler is a G-rated energy inefficient non condensing model
