GasTechnicalServices's review of Vaillant ecoTEC Pro 28 Condensing Combi Gas Boiler

★★★★★

“A very nice reliable boiler”

Written on: 22/06/2013 by GasTechnicalServices (1 review written)

As an Gas Installer with over 40 years experience I only install Vaillant EcoTEC Boilers and in particular I install a large number of the Vaillant EcoTEC Pro range. The boiler is very well engineered, easy to service and exchange parts and very reliable (If it is installed properly). I have read some of the reviews and can only conclude that the installer has not fully flushed the existing system and fitted a magnaclean or similar. F75 fault code has been mentioned and is a sure sign that the system has not been flushed and debris has got into the flow switch on the boiler. So many times customers go for the cheapest quote. Even the best boiler in the world will fail if it is poorly installed. I have a Vaillant EcoTEC Pro in my own home and install around 4 a month. I give a full 2 year warranty complete with a free service at the end of the first two years, with the offer of a full maintenance contract at the end of the 2 year warranty, and I am very confident with the product. I certainly get no repeat calls for breakdowns on this product. Do not accept the cheapest quote.....make sure that the installer is going to carry out a full system power flush using the appropriate equipment, and ask for references........There is nothing wrong with Vaillant Boilers, they are the best..fit the best and get the best to fit it, then you will have a reliable boiler.

Before I can give you accurate advice I would need to know more. Most of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus Range will deal with 13 Radiators with ease. The main thing here is your hot water requirements. I note that you have two bathrooms with showers. If there is a likelyhood of these being used simultaneously then a Combination boiler is going to pose a problem with hot water delivery. So you may need to look at their range of system boilers feeding a hot water storage cylinder. The selection would then depend on whether the existing system is vented or unvented, and whether your existing hot water cylinder meets the requirements of the Building Regulations which came into effect in April 2005. Really you need to find a good company in your area, who will call round and do a free survey to give you accurate advice. Sorry if this sounds a little unhelpful, but there is a lot to consider before a decision is made.

Hello Gastechnical services,
i have a 3 bed semidetached house and am changing from the old conevntional boiler ( Potterton Neatheat) to a new combi system. The gas guy has suggested Valiant Eco Tech Pro 28. I have 8 radiators, one bathroom and want to install a combi compatible shower. From your vast experience could you kindly advise if this is the best choice
thank you
Regards

The pro will cope well. It is a good boiler. I have fitted one in my own home and it is coping well with 12 radiators and a good quality thermostatic mixer shower.

Many thanks for this reassuring review. I have just had one fitted my housing association and look forward to long service and reduced bills. We have till now had an ancient bespoke Heat 2000 Robinson-Wiley back boiler which has returned gas bills of some £233 per month. N o I don't live in a mansion devoid of windows - it's an old (1834) two-up-two-down terraced factory house.

Thankfully, the engineers installing the system have carried out a robust power-flush and clean of the old system and ensured it is totally drained. So I hope the new Vaillant EcoTec Pro 28 will be error-code free.
