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

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

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

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only 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 Energy 30kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30 kW?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Glow worm Energy 30kW heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW in millimetres

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW is 700 mm tall, 375 mm wide, and 280 mm deep.

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

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only an energy-efficient 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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

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

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 89.2%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "B".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

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

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

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

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

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

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only 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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only is 30 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only Energy would be most suitable 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 Glow Worm Energy 30kW boiler measures 700 mm [H] x 375 mm [W] x 280 mm [D] in size.

Energy 30kW – condensing or non-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.

Does the Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only protect 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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing to install a Glow Worm Energy 30kW heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Glow Worm Energy 30kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "89.2%", equivalent to a "B" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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".

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

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