Glow Worm have been a leading manufacturer in heating and energy in the UK since 1934 and a proud part of the Vaillant Group since 2001. They manufacture all their products at their state-of-the-art facility in Derbyshire to achieve their goal of building quality, fuel efficient boilers that are affordable for all customers.
If budget for replacing your boiler is your primary concern, then Glow Worm is definitely one of the first brands you should look at. Cost effective without letting their quality suffer, Glow Worm have a modern, easy to install design across their entire range.
Some of the boilers in their range have been granted Quiet Mark approval, meaning they meet the threshold for ensuring that they will not disturb your home with how loud they are when they’re running. This is a great indication of the fact that Glow Worm are proud to say they don’t compromise on the quality of their boilers, even at their lower price.
Glow Worm are known primarily for their price. Their aim is to make sure that there is an affordable boiler on the market that doesn’t compromise on quality or reliability, as such, they are one of the best priced brands on the market.
They have UK based manufacturing with a state-of-the-art facility in Derbyshire and offer competitive warranties on their boilers with 2-7 years being standard on all models, and some rising to 15 years under certain circumstances.
Whilst they may not offer a boiler range that has features as advanced as their parent company Vaillant, Glow Worm are still reliable, durable and energy efficient, even at their lower price point.
Glow Worm only offer gas boilers, so they are not a brand to look into if you’re in the market for an electric or oil burning model, however one advantage they do have over their competitors is that some of their models are designed to work with LPG fuel right out of the box, without the need for a conversion kit. It is a specific benefit, but if you’re in the market for potentially changing to an LPG boiler in future, it is worth considering.
The great thing setting Glow Worm apart from the competition is their price. Affordable for pretty much everyone, they sit at the lowest edge of the mid range boiler market. Lots of factors will affect the price of a boiler, from size and output, to features and boiler type.
The great news is that with the exception of the most expensive model available from Glow Worm, you can get any of their boilers for less than £1000. Typically, the entire range can sit anywhere between the £540-£950 price point giving you high-quality and affordability together.
Any upgrade to your boiler will make a massive difference to your energy bills, and Glow Worm are no exception. Replacing a current G rated boiler in your home with a Glow Worm Ultimate can save you over £300 a year according to the Energy Saving Trust.
Since every current boiler offered by Glow Worm directly is A rated for efficiency making them at least 92% efficient or more, you can be assured that whichever new boiler you choose will have a direct impact on your energy bills.
