Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Glow Worm Energy 30kW is one you may wish to consider.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler has an output of 30 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


Where will the Glow Worm Energy 30kW fit in my house?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW occupies a space of 700 mm high by 375 mm wide and 280 mm deep.

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

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only?

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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will installing a Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Glow Worm Energy 30kW was given a 89.2% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Glow Worm Energy 30kW, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Does a Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Glow Worm Energy 30kW fit into?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Glow Worm Energy 30kW might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Should I install a Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler in my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler is 30 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW measures 700 mm in height by 375 mm in width by 280 mm in depth.

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

Condensing boilers like the Glow Worm Energy 30kW improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Glow Worm Energy 30kW was given a 89.2% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW has a rating of "A" .

Is there a warranty on the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler if it breaks down?

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
