Feedback from installers has helped Worcester Bosch develop the new Greenstar 8000 Lifestyle range comprising two models, Life and Style. As the top-of-the-range model, the Style version comes in two distinctive high gloss colour options: black and white.
The range is a direct replacement of the CDi Classic and retains many of its tried and tested features while improving on many others.
The Lifestyle range is available in combi, system and regular versions, from 30 to 50kW. With an increased modulation ratio (1:10), the new top of the range boilers are designed to improve fuel efficiency, user comfort and boiler longevity by preventing on/off cycling.
In addition to offering more power, the boilers are designed to be robust, lightweight and simple to fit. They are also compatible with the latest intelligent and smart technology, as they have full wireless connectivity via the Bosch EasyControl and are compatible with the Greenstar Intelligent Filling System. This feature ensures the boiler maintains optimum pressure without the need to operate a filling link.
One of the new features that comes with the Greenstar 8000 Style is its improved push-button LCD display, which unlocks a number of advanced features through simple navigation, full colour display and clear text descriptions – a feature that is likely to appeal to those who are tech-savvy and looking to monitor their household energy use.
The internal components of the new boiler can be easily accessed, with only one screw to take off the front cover. The top and side panels are also removable, meaning installers can access the internals from all angles.
The combustion chamber provides a neat, premium-look internally, similar to what you might see with a modern car engine. It also can be removed with one screw, providing further access to key components.
“It’s been nearly five years since we launched a new boiler,” says Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Communication and Product Management at Worcester Bosch. “The team has put a lot of time and consideration into the Greenstar 8000 Lifestyle range and we have no doubt that this will transform the industry. With feedback from hundreds of installers, we were able to build a number of improvements into the new range, and we are proud to be one of the first to be leveraging technology in boilers.”
