Worcester Bosch

A recent survey revealed that 9 out of 10 professional installers would choose Worcester for their own homes - giving you the reassurance of knowing that when you invest in a Worcester product, its quality is endorsed by the professionals. With Worcester, you have a boiler you can rely on year in, year out. As part of the Bosch Group, their products are designed and built to exacting standards, and constructed with only the highest quality materials, to provide the levels of quality and reliability which are synonymous with the Bosch name throughout the world. Every boiler is rigorously tested before it leaves the factory, to ensure that it is fit for everyday use and meets customer requirements. So with annual maintenance, a Worcester condensing boiler will provide you and your family with warmth, comfort and all-important peace of mind. All Worcester Greenstar gas-fired boilers come with long guarantees as standard. For added peace of mind they also hold spares for at least 10 years after the boiler has been discontinued.

Magnetic Filters Explained

A part of our standard boiler installation is a magnetic filter. In an age of advanced and high efficiency gas boilers there has never been a greater need to safeguard what amounts to one of the most expensive investments in the modern home - the central heating system. Even a small build-up of iron oxide in a standard or modern efficiency boiler results in substantial efficiency loss and fuel wastage. So, not only does the system perform inadequately, it also costs more to run and maintain. We install a proven, high efficiency, full-flow magnetic filter designed to tackle all central heating systems removing virtually 100% of the suspended black iron oxide.

Condensing Boilers & Energy Efficiency Explained

Heating accounts for about 55 per cent of what you spend in a year on energy bills, so an efficient boiler makes a big difference. All well-maintained boilers burn their fuel very efficiently, but they inevitably lose some heat in the hot gases that escape up the flue (a pipe for extracting fumes and supplying fresh air to the boiler). Modern boilers are more efficient for several reasons, but their main advantage is that they are all condensing boilers. A condensing boiler has a larger heat exchanger, so it recovers more heat, sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient. Sometimes the flue gases get so cool that the water vapour in the gas condenses out, hence the name, and even more energy is recovered from the condensing vapour. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that you could save as much as $315 per year by replacing an old "G" rated boiler with an "A" rated condensing boiler.

Why Worcester?

Worcester boilers have gained a strong reputation for several reasons: Reliability: They're known for their reliability and durability. Worcester boilers are often praised for their longevity and consistent performance. Energy Efficiency: Many models are highly efficient, which can save you money on your energy bills in the long run. They often score well in energy efficiency ratings. Quiet Operation: They tend to operate quietly compared to some other boiler brands, making them suitable for homes where noise levels are a concern. Warranty: Worcester often offers generous warranties, providing peace of mind and support in case of any issues. After-Sales Service: The company typically provides good customer service and support, which can be crucial for maintenance and repairs. Innovation: They continuously innovate and improve their products, incorporating the latest technology to enhance efficiency and performance. However, while Worcester boilers are highly regarded, it's always a good idea to consider your specific needs, the size of your property, your heating requirements, and your budget before making a decision. Comparing different brands and models can help you find the best fit for your home.

Boiler Plus Explained

Boiler Plus is new legislation which aims to improve energy efficiency of homes in the UK by increasing the efficiency of their heating systems. From April 2018, all boilers must have a minimum efficiency of 92% ErP and all installations must have time and temperature controls fitted, if they aren't already present and working correctly. Combi boilers, which are the most popular type of boilers in the UK, require one of four additional requirements to comply. The measures available are: (1) Load compensation - this intelligently modulates the flow temperature from the boiler based on the actual room temperature. (2) Weather compensation - this intelligently modulates the flow temperature from the boiler based on the outdoor temperature. (3) Smart control - a control allowing full automation and enhanced efficiency. (4) FGHR (Flue Gas Heat Recovery) - a way to redirect otherwise lost flue gases to heat water in the boiler.

Combi Boilers Explained

Combi boilers are the most popular boiler choice in the UK and work by providing on-demand hot water directly from the mains without having to be connected to a storage tank. As a combi boiler provides hot water at mains pressure, it allows you to use a shower without the need for an additional shower pump. All of the components are contained within one unit and there is no need for a separate hot water tank, making them ideal for properties with limited space.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are designed to help you control your home's central heating remotely. They also offer features that allow you to tailor your central heating to the specific needs of your lifestyle. Whether this means that your heating adjusts itself automatically according to the time of day or when you leave or enter your house, smart thermostats are designed to make your life easier.

What's different about a smart thermostat?

Normal thermostats allow you to change the warmth of your home. They normally do this through a dial or control pad of some sort. Smart thermostats on the other hand, give you complete command of your home's central heating. This means that you will be able to control your heating based on a number of different factors. Smart thermostats allow you to change the level of heating in your home based on the time of day, the outside weather and who's in your home. Smart thermostats also offer you the ability to control your central heating remotely by using your smart phone or tablet. Another feature that smart thermostats offer is a display of your energy consumption in real time. This allows you to see exactly how much energy you are using and decide if it's necessary to your requirements.
