Glow-worm combi boiler prices

A combination or ‘combi’ boiler heats water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap. This means that unlike a heat-only or regular boiler, you won’t need a separate hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank.

Combi boilers tend to produce good shower pressure and are also more cost- and energy-efficient, as the water is heated instantly, rather than being stored in a cylinder.

Glow-worm has a range of combi boilers. As mentioned above, the cheapest in the range is the Ultimate2 30c combi boiler, at £967, and the most expensive is Ultimate2 35c, at £1,165.

The table below compares the key product information of Glow-worm's top combi boilers, including price.
