Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system's output level is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 stands at 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide and 372 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system rated as environmentally friendly?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 was rated at 92% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 is "A".

Am I covered if the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 5 years after installation.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Should I choose a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler for my house or flat?

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

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 dimensions

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 is 720 mm high by 440 mm wide by 372 mm deep.

EcoTEC Plus 612 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 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.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system environmentally friendly?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for 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.

Will choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 lasts for 5 years.
