Glow worm Energy 18kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Glow Worm Energy 18kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Is a Glow Worm Energy 18kW system the right boiler for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Glow Worm Energy 18kW system's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Glow worm Energy 18kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Glow Worm Energy 18kW system would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


Where will the Glow Worm Energy 18kW fit in my house?

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW is 700 mm high by 390 mm wide by 280 mm deep.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW system an energy-efficient boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Will choosing a Glow Worm Energy 18kW system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW was given an efficiency rating of 89.3% and a band rating of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW has an ERP rating of "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Glow Worm Energy 18kW?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler to new customers.

Glow worm Energy 18kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

Glow Worm’s Energy 18kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW system boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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 Energy 18kW system's output level is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Energy 18kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Glow worm Energy 18kW System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler

The size of the Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler is 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 280 mm deep.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Energy 18kW.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 18kW system boiler 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.

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.

If you decide to install a Glow Worm Energy 18kW system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 Energy 18kW has been given a rating of 89.3% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW is rated "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 18kW boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
