Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 fit into?

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.

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 430 heat only boiler in my home?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

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?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 measures 600 mm high and 375 mm wide by a depth of 320 mm.

Is this Vaillant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 430 is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Where will the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 fit in my house?

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 are 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 has a rating of "A" .

How many years' warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
