Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Glow Worm Easicom3 24 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

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

Combi boilers are excellent for providing hot water and heat for your radiators just when you need it. When you have a combi boiler installed in your home, you just turn on the tap and the hot water for your bath, shower, washing dishes and other activities is there when you need it. It also provides the heat you need to keep your radiators warm.

A combi boiler heats the cold water passing through it, which it draws from the mains. This newly heated water can then be distributed to whichever hot tap or radiator needs it.

In the past, boilers needed at least one storage tank to hold water that was either already heated or would be heated later. Sometimes, you'd have to wait for hot water because there was none left. In addition, storage tanks took up a lot of space and most UK homes are pretty small.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time, meaning the pressure, volume and temperature of water will decrease if more than one tap is on at the same time or if both the shower and washing machine are on together.

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

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

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler has an output rate of 24 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi Easicom3 would be most suitable for 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.


What are the proportions of a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Glow Worm Easicom3 24.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi good for the environment?

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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing a Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 89.6% and a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

If the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 6 years on the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler to new customers.

Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 - regular, system or combi?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 might be an option for you to consider.

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce gas usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice 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.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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.


What size is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 boiler?

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 condensing or non-condensing?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 24 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi environmentally friendly?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 are 89.6% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

Am I covered if the Glow Worm Easicom3 24 combi boiler breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Glow worm Easicom3 24 Combi boiler covers you for 6 years.
