Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler is 30 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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 size is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 measures 720 mm in height and has a width of 440 mm and a depth of 338 mm.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30.

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 Pro 30 combi boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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.

Would choosing the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures 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 Pro 30 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi suitable for my house or flat?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi's output level is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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 dimensions does a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 have?

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 are 720 mm [H] x 440 mm [W] x 338 mm [D].

EcoTEC Pro 30 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro gas Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 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.

Is the combi Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler energy efficient?

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.

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.

Would installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

This European legislation intends to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler come with a warranty period?

Vaillant offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30.
