Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Vaillant’s EcoTEC Plus 412 - system, regular or combi?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 12 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 occupies a space of 600 mm high by 375 mm wide and 320 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 non-condensing or condensing?

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "TBC".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 is "TBC".

Does a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years following installation.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler has an output level of 12 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


Where will the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 fit in my house?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 is 600 mm high by 375 mm wide by 320 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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 EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 are 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "TBC".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 has an ERP rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.
