Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 is certainly one to consider.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler from the Easicom3 range a suitable choice 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 28 combi is 28 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate when making your decision.

Like all combi boilers, the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on. This Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

There is no benefit to purchasing a boiler with a high flow rate if the local water pressure is not that good - a high flow rate doesn't mean that your combi can draw more water from the mains.

In addition, if you live in a home with a large number of radiators and more than one bathroom and if more than one person regularly wants to use hot water at a time, a combi boiler may struggle to provide enough water at a hot enough temperature.

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.


Dimensions of the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler

The size of the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 non-condensing or condensing?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 28 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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

Would installing a Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Glow Worm Easicom3 28 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 6 years on the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler to new customers.

Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

Glow Worm’s Easicom3 28 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Is a Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler suitable 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 Easicom3 28 combi is 28 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
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 large is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 28 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Easicom3 28 – non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would installing the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 Easicom3 28 was given an efficiency rating of 89.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

Am I covered if my Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 6 years is included when you purchase the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler through PlumbProud.
