Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only is 12 kW, so which types of property is this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only EcoFIT Pure would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 size

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 occupies a space of 600 mm high by 375 mm wide and 295 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is choosing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will installing a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 has a rating of "A".

Does a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Vaillant Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Would the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only's output at 12 kW, which types of property would this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 have?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 stands at 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide and 295 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the heat only Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 boiler energy efficient?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Does a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 412 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
