Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 - standard, combi or system?

The Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

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 28 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler is 28 kW, so which types of property would this 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.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.

Easicom3 28 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How does the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi rate environmentally?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Easicom3 28 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.6%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "B".

What length of warranty does the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Glow Worm Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler are covered by a 6 year warranty.

Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Glow Worm Easicom3 28 is an option you may wish to 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 28 combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 28 kW?

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.

You should also consider a combi boiler's "flow rate" when making your choice.

The flow rate indicates how much water it can take from the mains supply at any one time (measured in litres per minute), which it then heats and distributes to different points in your home like your bathroom, kitchen and radiators. This Glow worm Easicom3 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Combi boilers have no storage tanks like system or heat only boilers. This means that if the water pressure where you live is low, there's no benefit in spending money on a combi with a high flow rate because a high flow rate doesn't mean it can draw any more water from the mains.

In addition, there might be lots of people in your household who want to use hot water at the same time while also having the central heating on. Given that average mains pressure in the UK is between 10 and 12 litres per second and a power shower usually requires about 12 litres of water per minute, a combi boiler might not be the right choice for you and your family.

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 dimensions of the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 boiler?

The dimensions of the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 are 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 - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 combi boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 was given an efficiency rating of 89.6% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

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

The parts and labour warranty on the Glow Worm Easicom3 28 lasts for 6 years.
