Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce gas usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler is 31.8 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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.


Making space for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832

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

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus gas Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 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.

How energy efficient is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi?

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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 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.

Does a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler is provided 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 a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 may be an option you should consider.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler right for my house or apartment?

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

This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler has an output level of 31.8 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 832 Combi boiler is 13 L/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

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 the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 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 832 combi considered environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

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

How long is the warranty period on a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 combi boiler?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 832 boiler to new customers.
