Glow-Worm Boilers Review – Are they the right choice?
Glow-worm is a stalwart of the UK boiler market, tracing its roots back to 1934 when it began manufacturing boilers in Derbyshire.
In 2001, they were bought by Vaillant Group, Europe’s second-largest heating company.
While technically the same company, Glow Worm boilers are still branded and sold under the Glow Worm name.
Glow-Worm’s range includes Combi boilers, heat only and system boilers.
The combi range starts from £624 with the Easicom 24 all the way up to A-rated, super-efficient Ultracom2 35.
The heat-only range starts with the Flexicom 24hx at £623 up to the Ultracom 38hxi at £1213. The entire heat-only range has an A-rating in energy efficiency of 90% and above. Keep in mind that heat-only boilers require storage tanks for hot and cold water which increases the size requirements compared to combis.
Glow-Worm’s System boilers range in price from the £615 Flexicom 18sx to the £1788 Ultrapower 170sxi Store.
Glow-Worm are certainly a good choice as a boiler, but there a few things you need to be aware of before purchasing.
Before you buy:
- Always ensure you get the advice of a qualified engineer before purchasing. They will be able to help you decide which boiler type and capacity is best suited for your own individual circumstances.
- Even if you’ve already 100% decided on Glow-Worm, don’t be in a rush to buy from the first place that quotes you. Different installers charge different prices, even for the same product. Plus their installation costs will vary from installer to installer. Remember, the price of the boiler itself is NOT the only thing you’ll need to pay for. You can see variations of hundreds of dollars, if not more, by the time you add in the extra installation costs.
The best way to make sure you’ve got the right boiler for you at the best price is to compare quotes from installers with experience in your area.
