Worcester Bosch has 30 oil-fired boilers in its current range to suit different types of home, including internal and external installation sites. The Greenstar Heatslave combination boilers are available as floor-standing internal or external units in three heat output ranges for smaller homes.
There are three floor-standing Greenstar Camray ranges of heat-only boilers for installation in a kitchen, garage or external site; three heat outputs are available to supply a wide range of house sizes. The Greenstar Utility range is suitable for a utility room or garage. The Greenstar Danesmoor wall-mounted range is more suitable for space-pressed smaller houses, but there is also a floor-standing version available.
All of the Worcester oil fired heat-only boilers can be used alongside Worcester solar installations.
The Greenstar Camray range of system boilers can be installed in a kitchen, garage or external site; three heat outputs are available to supply a wide range of house sizes. Like the heat-only boilers, they can be used alongside the Worcester Greenskies solar water heating range.

Worcester warranties and installation
Worcester boilers are supplied through trade installers, not sold directly by Worcester. Worcester Accredited Installers are not employed by Worcester but are accredited by the Worcester-Bosch Group to install its products. Many accredited installers specialise in Worcester products and most can offer extended guarantees.
If you have any problems with your new appliance during the manufacturer’s guarantee period, you should contact your installer first to ensure it is an appliance fault. During this period, Bosch Thermotechnology Ltd (the Worcester parent company) will repair any components that are faulty or defective for free.
The guarantee must be registered within 30 days of installation.
Unusually, Worcester offers a 10-year guarantee on the heat exchangers in its boilers, provided the boiler’s installation meets strict criteria on the sizing and positioning of the boiler - basically following best-practice guidelines. Otherwise it offers a two-year parts and labour warranty.
Worcester servicing and repairs
Worcester claims to have 300 service engineers across the UK and Ireland.
Worcester offers its own Service Plan for boilers that are out of guarantee. This covers up to £1,500 of approved boiler repairs every year, carried out by Worcester boiler engineers. It also includes a yearly service to ensure your boiler is running efficiently and safely.
