Our thoughts on the Glow-worm Easicom₃ Boiler
The Glow-worm Easicom₃ Boiler has a fantastic, compact design and high energy efficiency rating for such a powerful boiler. This is great news for homeowners looking to reduce their bills and carbon emissions.
The boiler comes as a regular, system or combi. If space is an issue, the combi model is ideal. If you are looking for guaranteed access to hot water simultaneously from multiple rooms of your home, the system or regular models are better suited.
This range comes in three standard sizes which will suit almost every large household.

Commitment to energy efficiency
The Glow-worm Easicom₃ Boiler is available as a combi boiler, so it doesn’t need a water tank which reduces the space needed for an efficient heating system.
This Glow-worm Easicom₃ Boiler is 94% energy efficient – the top end of efficiency performance – and has an ErP ‘A’ rating. That means it is a perfect choice for homeowners who want to keep household bills low and reduce carbon emissions.
All of the models rely on an aluminum heat exchanger, whilst this provides fast and effective heat transfer, it should be noted that aluminium components are not as corrosion-proof as their stainless steel equivalents, meaning the efficiency of this boiler, unfortunately, won’t last for the lifetime of the appliance.
As this is a wall-mounted boiler, many homeowners will be concerned about how it will look once installed. Particularly if not hidden in a cupboard. This is a really modern, white design with a sleek control panel. It is also a quiet model, so you won’t be disturbed by any unwelcome noise.
You can also use wireless or smart settings to control the boiler – with the latter you can choose to control the boiler with Glow-worm’s advanced controls, including mobile phone app-based controls.
