How Much Does this Boiler Cost?
Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor system has a typical price tag between £1,600 and £2,300 including VAT. We can’t give you an exact figure because the price will depend on which heat output (size) you need. In general, the higher the kW output, the more costly the boiler. The price will also vary from one supplier to the next, which is why it’s important to shop around in order to find the most competitive deal. In addition to the upfront cost of the boiler, you also have to pay for the installation, so be sure to ask about fitting costs when you talk to each supplier.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
The Greenstar Danesmoor System is an oil-fired system boiler. All system boilers must be installed together with a separate hot water storage cylinder which is usually placed in an airing cupboard. Although this means you’ll lose some space, having a cylinder is actually a good thing because it will provide a constant supply of hot water to all of your taps, even if you want to run them all at the same time. Because of this, system boilers are a great option for homes with more than one bathroom.
As this model comes in three heat (kW) outputs, you must ask an OFTEC registered engineer to assess your home and needs to find out if you’ll be best with either the 18kW, 25kW or 35kW unit. If you select a boiler that is too big or too small for your property, you’ll end up spending more money on your bills than necessary or be left with a boiler that is incapable of providing your home with enough heat and hot water.
Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?
It certainly is a high-efficiency oil boiler with an ‘A’ ErP efficiency rating. What’s more, the Greenstar Danesmoor System can be used with Worcester Bosch Greenstore hot water cylinders that offer significant energy savings. The boiler and these cylinders are designed to work with Greenskies solar panels, which can help to reduce your bills by up to a whopping 60%.
Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?
The controls and features aren’t bad, that’s for sure. Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar Danesmoor System has a control panel that is situated on the front face of the boiler and includes simple buttons and dials. If you want to enhance efficiency and comfort levels, you can add an optional 7-day programmer to the control area. This oil-fired model also has an easy to remove cross firing burner and one-piece baffle to make life easy for your engineer when they carry out an annual service. If you like the idea of being able to control your heating and hot water from your smartphone or tablet, the Greenstar Danesmoor System will not disappoint because it’s Bosch EasyControl compatible as well.
