Worcester Bosch 1000 Installation

One for the fitters, installing the Greenstar 1000 is about as easy as it gets according to Worcester.

This is mainly down to its purposely lightweight construction, meaning it can be easily picked up and put on a wall by one person.

This lightweight boiler comes in at a measly 26kg so there is no need for heavy lifting or any worries when it comes to the complex installations where manoeuvrability is key.

Quality, Beauty, and Economy Combined

The Greenstar 1000 comes with a one-box design. Ease of use is paramount with the lovely access through the front panel to all main important bits and components that an engineer would likely need to get to, including the primary heat exchanger.

You must get this boiler serviced every year as per the Ts and Cs to prevent you from invalidating your warranty – see our Boiler Central service plans.

Therefore, this feature simplifies installation and boiler servicing, making it a go-to choice for Gas Safe registered heating professionals.

Installer-Friendly Connections

All hydraulic connections are conveniently in-line and positioned just 35mm from the appliance’s rear. Additionally, like they always do with things such as simple switch, Worcester have thought of everything therefore, a gas pipe tail is provided for centralising the connection, and the PRV (Pressure Relief Valve) is perfectly located for easy access during the often tricky boiler installation process.

Efficient Condensate Trap

Want to save money on your bills, well you’ll be glad to know that this is a condensing boiler hence the Greenstar 1000’s condensate trap features a simple push-fit connection and can be easily removed.

External termination of condensate is flexible and possible up to 3m with insulated pipe (the bit that often gets frozen in winter)

Worcester Rear Spacer Frame Accessory

We know that time is of the essence, especially when you likely have to wait for the gas engineer to fit your boiler before you can have a red hot shower or bath.

Therefore, for as with most gas boilers that are wall mounted, Worcester have added a 35mm space behind the boiler which aids vertical piping.

This excellent solution to a well known problem ensures quicker and neater installations, making the Greenstar 1000 a preferred choice among Gas Safe and heating professionals.

Luckily most combi boiler installations are completed in less than 1 day so this will ensure that you are without hot water and heating for as little time as possible.
