Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Glow Worm Easicom 24 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Glow Worm Easicom 24.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Is a Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi's output at 24 kW, which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom 24, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi boiler is 10 L/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The size of the Glow Worm Easicom 24

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom 24 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

How energy efficient is the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will installing a Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Glow Worm Easicom 24 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

What is the warranty period on a Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler?

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 boiler comes with a 3 year warranty for parts and labour.

Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Glow Worm Easicom 24 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi Easicom would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You also need to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for where you live.

A combi boiler's flow rate is the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your radiators, taps and showers at the same time. This Glow worm Easicom 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

However, combi boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom 24 draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

If your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate.

Combi boilers also struggle when multiple people in your home want to use hot water at the same time - for example, someone running the hot water tap in the kitchen and two people wanting to shower in separate bathrooms.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Making space for the Glow Worm Easicom 24

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom 24 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Easicom 24 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Does the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi protect the environment?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Glow Worm Easicom 24 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

Does the Glow Worm Easicom 24 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Glow Worm Easicom 24 covers all repair-related costs for 3 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
