About Worcester Bosch
Worcester Bosch was founded in 1962 in Worcester, England by Cecil Duckworth as Worcester Engineering Co Ltd. In 1992, they were acquired by Robert Bosch GmbH and continue to be a part of this group.
Based in Warndon, Worcestershire, Worcester Bosch manufactures all of its gas boilers for the UK market at this site. Whilst the company manufactures its oil boilers at a further site in Clay Cross, Derbyshire.
Worcester Bosch’s product range includes gas and oil boilers, hot water cylinders, heat pumps, and solar water heating systems.
Worcester Bosch is the UK market leader in domestic boilers, recipients of Which? Best Buy awards for the Greenstar gas boiler range for the past 11 years and was the only brand to be awarded a Which? Best Buy award for oil boilers in the 2020 Which? Report.
In addition to this, they are the current holders of a Royal Warrant for supplying boilers to the Sandringham Estate, have recently been named as the UK’s Best Domestic Boiler Manufacturer in Build Magazine’s 2020 Home and Garden Awards, and was ranked as one of the top recommended brands by YouGov in the UK Domestic Appliance sector for 2020.
- Amongst the best build quality of any boiler range currently available in the UK
Backed up by the engineering strength of the Bosch brand, Worcester Bosch has long been known for its build quality and this continues across the new range.
- Warranty – 5 years as standard
Worcester Bosch’s guarantee is comprehensive and covers replacement parts, callout and labour costs. However, this is only 5 years as standard. To qualify for anything longer than this, you must buy the additional guarantee and the boiler must be installed by a Worcester Bosch-trained installer.
- Boilers in the range feature manual override switches
This will be a saviour on cold winter nights if the thermostat fails.
- Simple boiler controls across the range with clear information displays
There is nothing complicated about the controls on any of the boilers in the Worcester Bosch range, and everything is clearly presented and easy to find.
- Low risk of the condensate pipe freezing in severe weather conditions
Though a simple fix, a frozen condensate pipe can be frustrating and lead to temporary heating and hot water outages. Thankfully though, the Worcester Bosch range features condensate pipes that are resistant to freezing.
- Compatible with a wide range of controls
Allowing for increased energy efficiency and smarter operation, the Worcester Bosch range is compatible with a wide range of thermostats and smart heating controls.
- Integrated low-energy pumps
An integrated low-energy pump in boilers across the range will enable you to reduce your electricity usage.
- Included frost protection
This will reduce frost risk if installed in a garage or a loft.
- Aluminium heat exchanger
Not as robust as a stainless steel heat exchanger with potential efficiency drops of 10% or more over a 10-year period.
