Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler has an output rate of 31.8 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


How large is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi considered environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

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.

Will choosing to install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 was given an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and it applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Is this Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi covered by a warranty?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler from the EcoTEC Plus range a suitable choice 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 832 combi is 31.8 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would recommend that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler is a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is a combi boiler, which that means that you need to take the flow rate (measured in litres per minute) into account as well as the output rate. This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

Combis draw water from the mains, instantly heating and distributing it where it's needed - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, this means that the flow rate of a boiler may effectively be capped by the flow rate of the mains water supply. For example, if your mains pressure is 12l/m, that is the maximum flow rate that your boiler can achieve even if you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 18l/m.

In addition, if your home has more than one bathroom, a high number of radiators, and more than one member of your household wants to use hot water at the same time regularly, the flow rate of both the boiler and the mains water pressure may not be high enough.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


How large is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 has the following dimensions - 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 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 832 combi a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years' warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi come with?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.
