Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Vaillant’s EcoTEC Pro 24 - system, regular or combi?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 is certainly one to consider.

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.

Should I choose a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi boiler 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".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi boiler has an output of 23.4 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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.


Dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 boiler

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 has the following dimensions - 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24.

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.

How environmentally friendly is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 was rated at 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24.

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The parts and labour warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi boiler from the EcoTEC Pro range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 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 Pro 24 combi outputs at a maximum of 23.4 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 24 Combi boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

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 Pro 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 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.


What are the dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 is 720 mm high by 440 mm wide by 338 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 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.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

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.

Will installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 Pro 24 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 24 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
