How Much Does this Boiler Cost?

This combination boiler comes in four heating outputs including 25kW, 32kW, 35kW and 38kW, so prices vary according to these outputs. You can expect to pay between £1,110 and £1,500, depending on which model (kW) you need for your home. But remember, this is only the cost of the boiler and you’ll need to get prices on the installation as well. As prices differ between boiler suppliers and installers, we recommend you shop around and compare both boiler and fitting costs.

How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?

All combi boilers (or combination boilers) are able to produce hot water on demand without the need for a hot water storage cylinder or cold water tank. This is great news if your home is on the small side or you don’t have any airing cupboard or loft space. Combi boilers are also the most popular boiler type in the UK because they ensure hot water is almost instant. When it comes to the ecoTEC Plus Combi, options are available for small, medium and large properties.

If you want to know whether this boiler is the right type for your household, you’ll need to consult a Gas Safe registered engineer who can assess your home and requirements. Whilst doing this, your chosen engineer can work out which heat output will meet your heating and hot water demands.

Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?

Yes, the ecoTEC Plus Combi has a rating of 89.3% and is ErP A-rated for heating and hot water efficiency. It offers low energy consumption and can reduce its maximum output to just 16% when it knows you need less heat, helping to cut the cost of your energy bills. If you want to use the minimum energy required to heat your home, you can purchase the intelligent VRC 700 or vSMART heating control that ensures you save even more money by making your system run in the most efficient way possible.

Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?

The controls are actually concealed behind a drop-down panel and include a pressure gauge, on/off and reset switches, as well as central heating and hot water temperature controls. Key features include a stainless steel heat exchanger for improved efficiency, a flame detection system for low noise and combustion, and two-stage frost protection. This boiler also comes with its own step by step wizard, which is basically a guide that ensures straightforward installation and boiler setup. If you live in an off-gas area, don’t worry because Vaillant offers a range of LPG models too.

How long is the Warranty on this Boiler?

Vaillant’s ecoTEC Plus Combi is backed by a 5-year parts and labour warranty as standard. You may be able to upgrade this to 7 or 10 years, so be sure to ask about this at the time of purchase.
