Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 a standard, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler from the EcoTEC Plus range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 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 430 heat only outputs at a maximum of 30 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler measures 600 mm [H] x 375 mm [W] x 320 mm [D] in size.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 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.

How energy efficient is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler?

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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 is "A".

Will I be covered if the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing 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".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only has an output of 30 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler?

The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler is 600 mm high, 375 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only protect the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue 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 choosing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 scored an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK band rating 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 EcoTEC Plus 430 has a rating of "A".

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.
