Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system is 12 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 are 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 372 mm deep.

EcoTEC Plus 612 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

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 ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612, the ERP rating is "A".

What warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler come with?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 612 system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 612 System boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.
