Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 a standard, combi or system boiler?

Glow Worm’s Easicom3 24 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler right for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler has an output level of 24 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom3 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 Easicom3 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.


Where will the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 fit in my house?

The size of the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 non-condensing or condensing?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How does the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler rate environmentally?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will installing a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 was given a 89.6% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

Does a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 6 years following installation.

Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 fit into?

You might want to consider the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

Is a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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

This Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler has an output level of 24 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.

With combi boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom3 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.

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.


How big is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Glow Worm Easicom3 24 – non-condensing or condensing?

This Glow Worm Easicom3 24 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 is rated as 89.6% energy efficient, equivalent to a "B" SEDBUK rating.

Does the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler comes with a 6 year warranty for parts and labour.
