The Heating People aren’t tied to any particular manufacturer of boilers, we can work with all of them.

In a word, no!

Worcester Bosch is undoubtedly an excellent choice for a new boiler, for all the reasons we’ll soon get into. We’re proud to be Worcester Bosch Accredited Installers.

But Worcester Bosch is not the only excellent choice. That’s why getting a new boiler can be overwhelming!

There are many reputable boiler manufacturers that make reliable and efficient boilers that stand the test of time.

And you shouldn’t pick a boiler based on what everyone else seems to be getting. You need to make sure that the choice you’re making suits your particular wants and needs.

Although ATAG is a bit of a dark horse in the domestic boiler market at the moment, their engineering is outstanding, and they’re producing the most efficient boilers in Europe.

So, it’s important to do a bit of research on all of the brands that you’re interested in, so that you can see the benefits that each of them brings to the table.

That being said, let’s take a look at who Worcester Bosch are, and why they’re so popular…

Who is Worcester Bosch?

Worcester was founded in 1962 and became part of the Worldwide Bosch Group in 1996. They are the current market leader for domestic boilers.

Why should you consider a Worcester Bosch boiler?

Ok, so this is a bit of a shallow one, but if you’re after a stylish looking boiler that you don’t want to hide in a cupboard, Worcester Bosch is a good choice.

Up until recently, boilers have been thought of as ugly white boxes that are hidden away out of sight. But Worcester Bosch have turned that on its head, by designing their Lifestyle range of boilers.

These design-led boilers look more like an iPhone than a boiler. The Style even comes in either a high gloss black or white, with a touch screen!

The Lifestyle range was launched in May 2019 and is made up of two different models, the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Life and the Greenstar 8000 Style, both of which are available in a wide range of output sizes to cater for any home.

But don’t be fooled by their fashionable appearance, behind the glossy exterior, lies a lot of power. With power outputs of up to 50kw – this is the most powerful wall hung boiler on the market.

And according to Worcester Bosch, adding a Bosch EasyControl internet-connected Smart controller to their Greenstar range of boilers can further boost your heating system efficiency to an impressive 98% (also known as A+).

Both Lifestyle boilers (which we mentioned earlier) are 94% energy efficient and have an increased modulation ratio (1:10), in order to improve fuel efficiency, user comfort and boiler longevity by preventing on/off cycling.
