Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

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.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I choose a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler for my house or flat?

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

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only outputs at a maximum of 12 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

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


What size is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412's dimensions are 600 mm [H] x 375 mm [W] x 320 mm [D].

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

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

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "TBC" SEDBUK rating.

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 length of the warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412?

A parts and labour warranty of 5 years is included with the Vaillant Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only is 12 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What size is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 measures 600 mm high and 375 mm wide by a depth of 320 mm.

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 – non-condensing or condensing?

Is the heat only Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 boiler energy efficient?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 412 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "TBC" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

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

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