Given the competitive nature of the heating industry, Worcester know that installers have an important decision to make when it comes to selecting the best product for their customers. Many installers are loyal to the Worcester brand and recognise the By appointment to Her Majesty The Queen Boiler Manufacturer Worcester, Bosch Group T/A Bosch Thermotechnology Ltd. importance of the technical support and training Worcester offers. At Worcester, we pride ourselves on the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make sure you and your customers benefit from much more than the best in high-efficiency boilers and renewable technologies. For example, within the product reliability department, every Worcester Greenstar oil boiler is tested. The testing procedure ensures that every boiler has been put through its paces in the most extreme of conditions to ensure they are robust enough to stand up to the highest of demands and toughest of environments. We collect information on each individual component when we field trial our appliances, whilst also systematically noting any feedback from the service engineer who worked on the boilers. This information, along with responses from installers, is constantly processed to ensure all technical observations can be acted upon as a matter of urgency. It is this commitment that ultimately 9 out of 10 professional installers would choose Worcester “ for their own home”* ensures Worcester products remain the best they can be.

Based on installer feedback, the Greenstar Heatslave II As a result of such feedback, we have brought about the has been created to make servicing as simple and quick as following distinct features that benefit the installer. possible, with the layout enabling an annual service to take place completely from the front of the boiler. Easy installation The first thing that you will notice is that the Greenstar Heatslave II models are up to 50kg lighter than the previous Greenstar Heatslave. Look inside and you'll see there is now a cross-firing burner, simplifying oil supply and the expansion vessel is mounted at the front on a hinge, allowing fluing to the left. The hydraulic connections have been positioned on a diagonal plane at the left rear of the boiler enabling quick and easy installation. The expansion vessel moves 90º to allow full unhindered access to the burner, and the primary heat exchanger designed with ErP in mind, contains a one-piece primary baffle which is manufactured in high-temperature-resistant stainless steel, making them easy to clean and quick to service. Further improvements include an oil line which is run through the cabinet, as well as an oil isolation valve which mounts on an easy-to-access bracket on the right hand side of the primary heat exchanger. There is space on the bracket for the installation of a second oil isolation valve if you are utilising a twin pipe system. Finally, the Greenstar Heatslave II retains the internal condensate trap from the previous models, which utilises a simple condensate pipe connection. The height of the trap removes the need for a condensate pump in most instances. The existing, simple-to-remove, mesh baffle design has continued to be utIlised in the secondary heat exchanger. The components on the modular hydraulic block will be familiar to those servicing our gas-fired boilers. They offer improved reliability and are easy to replace. 7 Key features of the range On the primary On the secondary heat exchanger* heat exchanger* Greenstar Heatslave II boiler range Greenstar Heatslave II External Greenstar internal models are ideally suited for installation Where space in the home is at a premium a Greenstar around the home.

Service menu The simple-to-use engineers’ menu can check the operations of various boiler components without the need to remove the boiler front cover. Any problems can be easily identified with diagnostic codes, narrowing the potential causes of the problem. ECO hot water mode The Heatronic 4i has two hot water modes. Standard mode prioritises maintaining the temperature of the slave tank, maximising hot water performance. In ECO mode, to save fuel, the temperature drop of the slave tank is increased, meaning the burner fires less frequently to reheat the tank, thus saving fuel. 10 As part of the Bosch Group, Worcester is committed to new product development, economical use of heating systems and environmental protection. As part of this commitment, Worcester has a range of heating controls designed to enhance the integral efficiency of our Greenstar Heatslave II range.

The ErP Directive, which is a new regulation set by the European Union, is designed to drive improvements in the efficiency and performance of heating and hot water products. Its purpose is to ensure that end users are aware of the level of energy efficiency inherent within their appliances. As such, the Directive will help improve the overall efficiency of the housing stock, while enabling homeowners to reduce their energy bills. The ErP regulations cover boilers, combination boilers, heat pumps and other heating appliances up to 400kW. What is Energy Labelling? The Energy Labelling involves a label which we are familiar with today on washing machines and televisions at the point of sale. The Energy Labelling Product A regulations introduce Europe-wide energy labelling Model name requirements for boilers, combination boilers, water heaters and other heating products up to 70kW and hot water cylinders under 500 litres. CH efficiency band DHW efficiency band How will the labelling scheme work? The new Energy Labelling Directive will introduce new efficiency classes from A++ to G alongside the existing SEDBUK rating for boilers in the domestic and light commercial sectors. Most condensing boilers will fall within the A band, which requires them to achieve more than 90% seasonal efficiency, while renewable technologies such as heat pumps will likely be in the A+ or A++ bands (depending on flow temperature). 12 Sound power level Maximum heating output What about systems that contain What about controls? different products? The ErP Directive covers all products that In these circumstances, there is a responsibility to consume energy, such as boilers, heat pumps, provide a package label when combining a heating solar thermal etc. It also includes controls, appliance with a temperature control and/or solar which are defined using ‘classes’. These run device, cylinder or a supplementary heating from Class I (a simple on/off room stat) through appliance (for example, a two-boiler cascade with to Class VIII (multi-sensor room control for use a combined total output of under 70kW). with modulating heating appliances). The person who puts that package together will Each control class equates to a certain percentage need to produce a package document known as uplift in system efficiency e.g. a class III weather a fiche (data table) and label that provides the sensor and room thermostat will add 1.5% combined energy efficiency rating rather than efficiency to the heating system. Details of the ratings of each individual component. controls class for each Worcester control can be found on page 11. For example, this could be the merchant’s responsibility if they supply a complete package under one part number or the installer if the items are bought individually under separate part numbers. In either circumstance, Worcester will provide an online tool that makes calculating the overall package efficiency of a Worcester system effortless. ErP easy as ABC with Worcester The Energy Labelling obligation under the Energy Related Products (ErP) Directive comes into force on the 26th September 2015. Worcester will have a number of measures in place to support you including: An online tool which creates product and heating system labels ErP will be covered in all Worcester training courses ErP experts – our technical and customer support teams can answer all your questions.

The filter is suitable for any 22mm piped heating systems. Damaged boiler and system components • Blockages in primary heat exchanger • Increased wear on pumps • Blocked valves. At the centre of this innovative design is a highly powerful magnet that removes the magnetic debris (magnetite) that is present in the heating system water. The central location of the magnet ensures that magnetite is collected quickly and retained, maximising the overall protection, a proven technology that offers a capacity to collect up to 200g of magnetite a year. Any non-magnetic debris is caught by the twin-action cyclonic trap. The Greenstar System Filter has been extensively tested in simulated systems, proving its effectiveness in removing iron oxide, magnetite, limescale particles, casting sand, welding debris, non-magnetic metal ﬂakes, paint particles and other system pollutants. A circulating pump damaged by system debris and pollutants How the Greenstar System Filter removes Reduced efﬁciency debris from the system water. • Energy efficiency loss equivalent to a boiler being reduced from A rated efficiency to D rated, resulting in fuel wastage* • Blocked radiators can reduce efficiency and heating comfort. A thermal graphic of a blocked radiator Debris in the system blocks the efficient flow of water around the system, thus affecting the radiator’s heat distribution. Installation The filter can be installed almost anywhere in a heating system. However, to maximise the effectiveness, it should be placed before the boiler and after the last radiator. 28 *Independent research carried out by GASTEC at CRE Features Benefits Safeguards the boiler against damage and Highly effective filter protects the efficiency of the system.

It should be fitted on the auxiliary siphon provides an innovative alternative for 43mm pipework, between the boiler condensate outlet the prevention of freezing for externally run discharge and the drainpipe. The installation should take place condensate (see pages 32-33 for details). outside the property to avoid flooding during adverse weather conditions. 31 The Worcester CondenseSure With climate change and extreme weather variations becoming increasingly common, and with very cold winters with temperatures as low as -20°C being experienced, practices such as externally run condensate discharge pipework are now being questioned. In these conditions the condensate pipe on a condensing oil-fired boiler can freeze. This can lead to a blocked condensate pipe, which will cause condensate to drain back into the boiler leading to corrosion of mild steel components and leakage of condensate. This can result in premature component failure, damage to property and burner failure. The CondenseSure auxiliary siphon has been designed to allow a more flexible approach to boiler siting. Tested to extreme temperatures The CondenseSure insulating jacket helps to retain the temperature of the condensate. The CondenseSure auxiliary siphon has been extensively tested under simulated extreme weather conditions, proving its effectiveness in preventing frozen condensate A universal ﬁtting for new and existing installations at -15ºC for a sustained period of 48 hours. Although developed specifically for Worcester Greenstar gas- and oil-fired boilers, the Worcester CondenseSure CondenseSure principle of operation can also be fitted to any make of condensing boiler for Most oil-fired condensing boilers have a trap which both new and retrofit installations. The CondenseSure releases condensate as it is formed.
