Worcester 8000 dimensions – How big is the 8000 life boiler?

Worceter Greenstar 8000 dimensions780mm x 440mm x 365mm

This boiler is designed to be the same size as a standard kitchen cupboard, so if you want it on show, it will fit flush between any cupbards. This means it’s likely too big to fit into many kitchen cupboards, but it has been designed to look good when wall-hung and is available in black or white.

It’s a stylish new boiler with curved corners and a smart-looking control panel, so it can look like another kitchen appliance and not something you want to cover up.

Another advantage of this boiler is its lighter weight.

The lightweight design makes it easy to install so that you can save time on installation.
