Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 fit into?

You may wish to consider installing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi boiler in my home?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi is 30 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You should also consider a combi boiler's "flow rate" when making your choice.

The flow rate indicates how much water it can take from the mains supply at any one time (measured in litres per minute), which it then heats and distributes to different points in your home like your bathroom, kitchen and radiators. This Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Combi boilers have no storage tanks like system or heat only boilers. This means that if the water pressure where you live is low, there's no benefit in spending money on a combi with a high flow rate because a high flow rate doesn't mean it can draw any more water from the mains.

In addition, there might be lots of people in your household who want to use hot water at the same time while also having the central heating on. Given that average mains pressure in the UK is between 10 and 12 litres per second and a power shower usually requires about 12 litres of water per minute, a combi boiler might not be the right choice for you and your family.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What are the proportions of a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 is 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep in size.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi a good choice for the environment?

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.

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.

Will choosing a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from the initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period for the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler covers you for 2 years.

Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 - regular, system or combi?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 may be worth considering if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers are excellent for providing hot water and heat for your radiators just when you need it. When you have a combi boiler installed in your home, you just turn on the tap and the hot water for your bath, shower, washing dishes and other activities is there when you need it. It also provides the heat you need to keep your radiators warm.

A combi boiler heats the cold water passing through it, which it draws from the mains. This newly heated water can then be distributed to whichever hot tap or radiator needs it.

In the past, boilers needed at least one storage tank to hold water that was either already heated or would be heated later. Sometimes, you'd have to wait for hot water because there was none left. In addition, storage tanks took up a lot of space and most UK homes are pretty small.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time, meaning the pressure, volume and temperature of water will decrease if more than one tap is on at the same time or if both the shower and washing machine are on together.

Would the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi's output is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 830 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The size of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 in millimetres

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 boiler is 700 mm high, 390 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 830 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 scores "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Will I be covered if the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 combi breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 830 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
