Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

You might want to consider the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 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, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi's output at 30 kW, which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You should also consider a combi boiler's "flow rate" when making your choice.

The flow rate indicates how much water it can take from the mains supply at any one time (measured in litres per minute), which it then heats and distributes to different points in your home like your bathroom, kitchen and radiators. This Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Combi boilers have no storage tanks like system or heat only boilers. This means that if the water pressure where you live is low, there's no benefit in spending money on a combi with a high flow rate because a high flow rate doesn't mean it can draw any more water from the mains.

In addition, there might be lots of people in your household who want to use hot water at the same time while also having the central heating on. Given that average mains pressure in the UK is between 10 and 12 litres per second and a power shower usually requires about 12 litres of water per minute, a combi boiler might not be the right choice for you and your family.

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 30 boiler?

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

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Does the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi protect the environment?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 was given an efficiency rating of 93% 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 Pro 30 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the length of the warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 in millimetres

The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler is 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 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 Pro 30 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading 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 Pro 30 scores "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 combi boiler come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Vaillant Vaillant EcoTEC Pro 30 boiler.
