Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 - regular, system or combi?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is a gas combi boiler.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi is 31.8 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

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 boiler measures 720 mm [H] x 440 mm [W] x 338 mm [D] in size.

Is this Vaillant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

How energy efficient is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 was given a 94% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading 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.

Am I covered if the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler comes with a 5 year warranty for parts and labour.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

You may wish to consider installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi 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 832 combi outputs at a maximum of 31.8 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

To most boiler engineers, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi EcoTEC Plus would be most suitable 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.


Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 size

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 are 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

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

Condensing gas boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the combi Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler energy efficient?

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.

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.

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

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade 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.

What is the length of the warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832?

A parts and labour warranty of 5 years is included with the Vaillant Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler.
