Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only 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 install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler in my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only's output at 30 kW, which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler would be suitable for 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 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 non-condensing or 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.

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

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

Would choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics 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 Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their 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 EcoTEC Plus 430 has a rating of "A".

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

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 430 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 boiler may be worth considering.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

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

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?

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


Making space for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 measures 600 mm in height and has a width of 375 mm and a depth of 320 mm.

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

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

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

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

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading 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" .

What warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430 heat only boiler come with?

Vaillant offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 430.
