How Much Does this Boiler Cost?

You’ll need to consider the fitting cost as well, which is likely to be more than double the price of this boiler. It is possible to save on both the cost of the boiler and installation by shopping around, so be sure to take the time to compare prices from different companies and installers.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
A system boiler, such as the Glow-worm Easicom3 System, requires a separate cylinder for storing hot water. Most people that own a system boiler keep their cylinder in an airing cupboard. One of the benefits of system boilers is that they don’t need to be combined with a cold water tank, making this appliance a great option for homes without any loft space. Also, these types of boilers are suitable for homes with multiple bathrooms because they can stand up to high hot water demands.
Because this boiler is available in a 25kW output, it should be more than capable of meeting the needs of small to medium-sized properties. To be on the safe side and to find out if a system boiler is the correct type for your home, you should seek professional advice from a Gas Safe registered engineer.
