Glow worm Energy 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW - standard, combi or system?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Would the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system be a suitable boiler 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 30kW system's output level is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW's dimensions are 700 mm [H] x 390 mm [W] x 280 mm [D].

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Glow Worm Energy 30kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

How energy efficient is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would installing the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.3% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Glow Worm Energy 30kW is "A".

Am I covered if the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler through PlumbProud.

Glow worm Energy 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Glow Worm Energy 30kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Is a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler appropriate 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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW system's output is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW are

The measurements of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW are 700 mm by 390 mm by 280 mm.

Is this Glow Worm boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Energy 30kW - 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 Energy 30kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system would be a good choice for the environment.

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 30kW has been given a rating of 89.3% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Glow Worm Energy 30kW.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Glow Worm Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler.
