Greenstar met the Ultimate

Job Request: fit new combi boiler in place of existing regular heat only boiler.

New Installation: A Worcester-Bosch Greenstar 18Ri heat only boiler had been installed so poorly that the customer was left with no alternative but to seek a new boiler. Not only had the heat exchanger become blocked solid and showed signs of extreme overheating, but poor servicing had also led to the condensate sump drain not being fitted back properly, resulting in the boiler casing suffering very heavy corrosion to the point where it was beginning to affect the integrity and safety of the room sealed appliance.

The customer, a landlord, decided that his best course of action was to have a new combination boiler installed and the choice was for a Glowworm Ultimate 3 30C ErP combi with a five year manufacturer’s parts and labour warranty. A full and proper powerflush was conducted to ensure that the same fate didn’t befall the new boiler like the last, the existing Adey Magnaclean Pro was relocated beneath the new boiler and connected to the return leg of the heating system rather than the flow as before.

All radiators with exception to the one in the hall were fitted with TRVs (thermostatic radiator valves) and a Salus RT510RF wireless programmable room thermostat was supplied and fitted to provide full control of the heating system.
