Worcester Greenstar 4000 combi boiler review

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review old greenstar i range

Firstly we have reviewed the Greenstar 4000 combi boiler rather than the system boiler because they are the most common boiler in the UK.

This boiler is replacing the legendary Greenstar i series which has been in production for over 10 years from Worcester.

The old Greenstar i is renowned for reliability and longevity. So its replacement needs to be better, and well, it is.

Worcester 4000 30kw Review

Apparently, they’ve taken the old Greenstar ‘DNA’ as Worcester says from the Greenstar 25i and Greenstar 30i boiler, fiddled with it to make it better, and given it a whole new look.

This new Worcester Bosch model is barely recognisable from the outside, but we are told the insides have been tweaked to be more economical & future-proof.

The Worcester 4000 30kW is already a huge hit.

How much does a Worcester 4000 cost?

How much does a Worcester Bosch Greenstar boiler cost is the big question? It’s new so it’s going to cost more. Wrong, it doesn’t cost any more than the old Greenstar I.

Fantastic news! It’s not the cheapest replacement boiler on the market, but it’s priced as it should be for a mid-range boiler.

The Greenstar 4000 is fully available with boilers on finance too to spread the cost.

Worcester Greenstar 4000 main features

With a new boiler comes the expectation of new features, so latest take a look at some of the internal and external features that make the Greenstar 4000 a ‘better than ever’ boiler.

Worcester Bosch 4000 LCD touchscreen colour display

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review lcd touchscreen

There’s no second-guessing what’s going on with your new Worcester 4000 when in operation.

It clearly shows in full text what is going on.

A colour pressure gauge, boiler temperature, and easy-to-use and navigate menus make this a technophobes dream. 

Worcester 4000 Quick tap water saving feature

Energy-saving and water-saving are ever more key in saving our planet.

The Worcester ‘quick tap’ is just another addition to help save water.

Simply turn your tap on and off to kick start your boiler, 30 seconds later turn it back on, and boom!

Hot water without running the tap to get there. Great eh!

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review quiet mark

Worcester 4000 Quiet Mark Accreditation

The Greenstar 4000 is a whole 10% quieter than the old Greenstar i range.

This may not seem a lot, but when you consider that the old boiler was already quiet, it’s pretty impressive, therefore given the Quiet Mark accreditation.

This boiler can fit in kitchen cupboards too, so this will also make it go more unnoticed! 

Worcester 4000 SimpleSwitch & Wall Mounting Frame

Good news if you have the old Greenstar i, Worcester have thought about you!

They have maintained the parts in the same position to enable an easy swap for any new Worcester 4000 just to slot in place. What a great idea to ensure you get another Worcester!

They can fit in cupboards, but you may need a special boiler kitchen cupboard to make sure.

Worcester 4000 Easy access to all key components

Let’s face it, life’s not easy and things go wrong, but when they do we want an easy fix.

The 4000 is prepared and ready for any problems that may arise and has front access to all key components.

Great if your plumber is on an hourly rate or you want to move your boiler to a tight spot!

If you are ever bothered to look at your water pressure gauge sometimes it will drop and you may have to fiddle with a few taps underneath and watch the gauge rise.

Not with the Greenstar 4000, it does it all itself. No worrying if you’re going to flood the house or turn the water off!

Worcester Bosch 4000 System boiler review

The Worcester bosch system boiler range has all the same benefits and parts upgrade as the combi boiler. It can slot right into an old Greenstar i system boilers place and take off right where it ended.

All Worcester Greenstar system boilers need a hot water storage cylinder to work, so ensure that you definitely need a 4000 system boiler and not a combi.

If you have a back boiler, the 4000 is a great back boiler replacement

Worcester Bosch Greenstar boilers online reviews

We’ve mentioned some of the fun stuff, and the boring stuff, but here is our verdict on whether or not you should spend your hard-earned cash on this particular new boiler.

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review trustpilot

Rated Excellent on TrustPilot from thousands of reviews also bolsters the claims of the Worcester Bosch brand.

Worcester 4000 Performance Review – 9/10

It’s a Worcester Bosch, it was always going to perform well in the heating department. There was no way they were going to take a backward step after years of domination.

Worcester 4000 Reliability Review- 9/10

It’s a Worcester…. Can we use that again?

In all seriousness though, Worcesters we see or hear of very little complaints from Worcester Bosch owners and if looked after with its obligatory yearly service then you should have years of hassle-free heating.

There are currently supply issues (December 2021) due to electrical component shortages, so this could be a sticking point if this breaks in a 4000 boiler as you may be waiting a while for the part.

Worcester Bosch 4000 Boilers Prices Review – 8/10

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review 10 year guarantee

It’s not the cheapest boiler you can buy, but it’s priced accordingly for the market it is aimed at. The 4000 will be Worcester‘s mid-range boiler.

That said, you can get a Viessmann Vitodens 050-w for less for the same performance, reliability, and warranty!

The Worcester 2000 is also cheaper but lacks a long warranty.

Worcester Greenstar 4000 Warranty Reivew – 8/10

If this boiler is that good it should get the market-leading 12 years warranty that are on offer for some boilers these days. You can only get the full 10 years too if you upgrade and pay a little bit more for your boiler. It’s a bit sneaky, although we think it’s worth it if you are going to buy this boiler. 

Worcester 4000 Reviews Overall Score 8.5/10

8.5 is a pretty good score, if it was slightly cheaper it would be a 9, but then we are quibbling over around £50-£100 depending on where you buy. But, the money is always better in your pocket than theirs! Try Boiler Central for a free online fixed price quote.

Worcester 4000 Problems – Common issues if your boiler is not working

The Worcester 4000 is a brand new boiler so other than supply issues due to parts not being available, we haven’t encountered too many issues or boiler breakdowns as of yet.

The most common problems with the Worcester 4000 will be problems that you have with every other boiler such as low water pressure which can happen over time or your condensate pipe being blocked which is usually due to freezing.

These are easily fixed by topping up the water pressure and defrosting your condensate pipe.

Worcester 4000 Supply issues due to electrical component shortages

If you have been told that there may be a supply issue or the Worcester 4000 is not in stock then this is true due to the fact that there is a shortage of electrical components that are required for the Greenstar 4000 boiler.

If you do order a Worcester Greenstar 4000 boiler online, it is always best to check or expect possible delays in installation. If you can’t wait, we suggest installing the Viessmann 050-w which is as good, if not better than the 4000.

Worcester Bosch 4000 Boiler Thermostats & Controls

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review bosch easy control smart thermostat

Everyone these days wants a smart thermostat.

Who doesn’t want to get their home nice and warm on a cold winter’s night for when they get in after a day’s hard graft.

Well with the Worcester 4000 you have a multitude of options, both smart and regular for those who prefer a simple life. 

Worcester 4000 Bosch EasyControl

Why let Hive and Nest have all the fun when you can design your own smart thermostat and app.

This is exactly when Worcester has done with the Bosch EasyControl.

Simply connect to your Greenstar 4000 through the built-in WiFi, download the app to your phone or device and you can control your heating from anywhere that you have an internet connection! 

Comfort Plus II

Worcester Bosch 4000 Review nest

This is Worcester’s best standard thermostat.

Simple to use like any normal thermostat with settings and programs for you to be able to change the temperature at certain times. Easy to use and great if you are in and out of your house at regular times.

Hive & Nest

Both these smart thermostats are universal and can be used by most boilers on the market if installed correctly.

They work just the same as the EasyControl but are a lot more versatile. They’re not cheap, but apparently, they’re supposed to save you money on your gas and electricity bills.

Partly true but it isn’t that simple.

These connect to the boiler using the built-in WiFi also.
