Glow worm Energy 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system is 30 kW, so which types of property is this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler appropriate 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.


How large is a Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW is 700 mm in height, 390 mm in width and 280 mm in depth.

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

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Glow Worm Energy 30kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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 a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Energy 30kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.3%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "B".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW is rated "A".

What is the warranty period on a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.

Glow worm Energy 30kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

If you are searching for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Glow Worm Energy 30kW is certainly one to consider.

This type of boiler is better for larger homes and larger families where the demand for water is likely to be higher.

System boilers use a cylinder that draws water from the mains, heats it and then keeps it warm. The cylinder stores a large amount of water, meaning that you should have hot water all day. To be certain of this, make sure that you program your boiler to draw and heat water to meet times when demand is greater, like first thing in the morning before you and your family members go to work or school, and for the evening when everyone gets home.

Unlike heat only boilers, you won't need to find room in your attic for a cold water storage tank - suitable if you don't have an attic, your attic space is very limited, or you are planning an attic conversion in the near future.

Should I choose a Glow Worm Energy 30kW system boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Glow worm Energy 30kW System 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 Energy 30kW system boiler is 30 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Glow worm Energy 30kW System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW

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

Glow Worm Energy 30kW – non-condensing or condensing?

This Glow Worm Energy 30kW is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

How does the Glow Worm Energy 30kW system rate environmentally?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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 30kW system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 89.3% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

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.

If the Glow Worm Energy 30kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
