Glow worm Easicom 25 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Easicom 25 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Should I install a Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

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 25 heat only is 25 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Glow worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.


How big is the Glow Worm Easicom 25?

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Easicom 25 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom 25 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

How does the Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only rate environmentally?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will installing a Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

What warranty does the Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler come with?

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 3 years following installation.

Glow worm Easicom 25 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Glow Worm’s Easicom 25 - system, regular or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Glow Worm Easicom 25 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only's output level is 25 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom 25 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Glow Worm Easicom 25 boiler?

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom 25 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Easicom gas Glow Worm Easicom 25 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How does the Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only rate environmentally?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Glow Worm Easicom 25 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 has been given a rating of 94% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

What length of warranty does the Glow Worm Easicom 25 come with?

The Glow Worm Easicom 25 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 3 years following installation.
