Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

You might want to consider the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 for your house or flat if you are looking for a system boiler.

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 install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler in my house or apartment?

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?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 - size in millimetres

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

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus gas Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler rated as 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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts 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 612 is rated as 92% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 612 has a rating of "A".

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

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Vaillant Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.

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 is a gas system boiler.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler in my house or apartment?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System 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 612 system outputs at a maximum of 12 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler is 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 372 mm deep.

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

Condensing boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 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.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler 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.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 is rated "A".

What length of warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 come with?

Vaillant offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612.
