Vaillant ecoTEC+ combi boilers. (Updated 26/03/09)

AdvantagesQuiet,easy to use and good quality.

DisadvantagesGets a bad reputation when installers fail to install them correctly.

"This review is about the Vaillant ecoTEC+ 800 series combination boilers. The Vaillant ecoTEC+ 800 series boilers are the choice of many installers all across the UK, they are undoubtedly the best main stream boilers on the market.Vaillant have been in the heating industry for over 130 years which means they have a lot of experience in manufacturing very good quality products. Vaillant boilers are made in Germany.Enough about Vaillant ..." Read review

Vaillant, A Valliant partner

AdvantagesStrong, Hard wearing, lost lasting, good quality

DisadvantagesSometimes expensive

"Vaillant have been in business of manufacturing first class gas appliances for years. They are renowned for making high quality heating systems that range in price from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds. I own a Vaillant eco tec pro Combi boiler that both provides my central heating and hot water for domestic purposes. I have come in contact with Vaillant products the world over. The Eco Tec Pro review: With compact dimensions (H: 720mm ..." Read review

Simply the best

AdvantagesThe best

DisadvantagesCost

"...The reason for this? Vaillant were the only boilers that they could rely on not to break down. They didnít want to have to go back repairing the thing, so they only fitted Vaillant boilers, which came with a good guarantee and a lifetime of excellent boiling (or whatever boilers actually do). If it was an elderly person who really couldnít afford a Vaillant, they would consider fitting a Worcester, which are nearly as good (see my separate review ..." Read review

Vaillant Eco max

AdvantagesEfficient,easy to use,quiet.

DisadvantagesPrice

"...then a plumber told me Vaillant was a safer choice. Why was Vaillant a safer choice? It had a stainless steel heat exchanger,this is always better in condensing boilers as the condensate produced in a condensing boiler can corrode away a copper or Alluminium heat exchanger. Although the heat exchanger in the Worcester is Alluminium coated with silicone there is no guarantee of how long the coating will last. Sedbuk band A efficiency. Fault ..." Read review

-Kaboom- at Christmas

AdvantagesIt's not gone kaboom yet.

DisadvantagesIt's threatend to go kaboom many times... and today is Christmas! The bugger!

"...to pleased to hear our Vaillant acting up again. Okay, so hereís the unitís history. We had it installed when we moved into the house, what, ten years ago. It was fine. It was wonderful. Itís a big, old house but this boiler kept even the top most rooms warm. There was no problem with the heater for years. What is the life expectancy of a central heating boiler? One year? Five years? Ten years? A life time? Well, it took about five ..." Read review

Vaillant boilers, an engineers view!

AdvantagesReliable, robust, quiet, easy to install/service

DisadvantagesMaybe the one disadvantage is the price

"...response to Davey's review of Vaillant (11/08), I am somewhat surprised that he has commented on the disadvantages and not the advantages of their boilers. I am even more surprised that he has suggested a "mid" range boiler such as Vokera or Ideal of which I wouldn't personally install in my shed!! My name is Nick Harris and my company is AquaHeat Oxford Ltd. My plumbers and I have been exclusively installing Vaillant boilers in the Oxon area since ..." Read review

Combi that's built like a tank

AdvantagesSturdy, practical, powerful, easy on the eye

DisadvantagesExpensive

"In my experience, Vaillant make really good boilers. Every Vaillant that I have had (or encountered) has been ruthlessly efficient and powerful, and our latest model the TurboMax Plus 828E (their top of the range combi) which we installed last year, has been excellent. It was supplied and fitted for only £1300, and has been worth every penny. It is not too ugly, and fits in a modern kitchen without being too intrusive. It looks neither cheap nor plasticky, ..."

The big beast

AdvantagesVery efficient

DisadvantagesVery big

"This lovely big beast was installed just over a year ago. We chose the ECOmax 824 E, which is a condensing combination boiler. I was surprised at the size of it though. Pictures in other manufacturers brochures showed boilers fitting neatly into kitchen cupboards. This one, however, is rather too big for that. Our previous boiler was a back boiler, which fired itself up a couple of times a day. This gave us hot water in the tank, but I thought ..." Read review

Quick review of Vaillant

"I purchased a Vaillant Ecomax Pro in April 2004. The engineer described it as the 'Rolls Royce' of boilers. He could not have been more wrong. In October 2008 I have been issued with a Warning/ Advice Notice Report stating that it is immediately dangerous and should not be switched back on. The case seals were broken, the heat exchanger leaking onto the electrical components below and there is extensive corrosion internally. Vaillant have admitted that there was a manufacture fault in the seals in some of their earlier condenser boilers but are refusing to take any responsibility for the short life of my boiler even though I had it serviced annually by a Vaillant accredited engineer. Their customer/aftercare service is very poor.

Vaillant - very poor experience

Advantagesnone that I can think of

Disadvantagesunreliable

"We had a Vaillant boiler installed about four years ago. We asked the engineer to supply the best on the market. I wanted an Aga, my wife thought they were old fashioned. With three teenagers we needed a lot of hot water. Firstly, the boiler never fulfilled the spec we had been given. We were told we could run two hot taps simultaneously. Well, you can, but you won't get hot water. We learned to live with that. But the boiler has broken down more ..." Read review

gasket seal

Advantageseconomical

Disadvantagesexpensive

"...we had a letter from Vaillant saying that a part had to be fitted as our model must have been delivered without it, and prolonged use could cause failure of other components. The part was fitted (a gasket seal) about 3 weeks since,and what I would like to know is, what are the other components that are at risk of being damaged? as we have been using this boiler for three years continuously, and is it just coincidence that only yesterday, the pump ..."

Vaillant Service is not great either

AdvantagesCheap Gas Bill as not working

DisadvantagesFreezing cold

"I have recently had a vailant fitted in my house near Leeds. The plumber said they where good this boiler certainly was not cheap I kind of figured that because they where at a premium that mattered I agree with the previous review. The boiler stopped working after 2 days I called out the installer he cannot get it going and I have no idea what he is saying is wrongit just sounds like guff. Theres a 14 days wait for them to come out which is redicilous. ..." Read review

Fault Finding

AdvantagesEconomical

DisadvantagesFault F75

"Vaillant Ecotec plus boiler generally pretty good but has a reoccuring fault that trips system and no-one includuing service engineer can confirm problem. The fault shows as F75 which is not included ion the service / installation / maintenance manual. To reset the boiler, more often than not, must open the system inlet water valve, then reset and switch back on. This then increases the operating pressure and indicates operating in the red zone on ..." Read review

Vaillant better than Worcester Bosch

AdvantagesReliable & efficient

DisadvantagesToo noisy to fit in a bedroom (like all combi's)

"We have had a Vaillant combi for over 20 years (installed in 1985). The only thing that went wrong was the pump, about 3 years after it was installed. Nothing has gone since until now when a valve stuck but is hopefully repairable. In another house we had a Worcester Bosch combi installed (two years ago). The model is supposed to run up about 12 radiators, we have 5, and it is absolute rubbish. Takes at least 5 mins for the water to get hot (quicker ..." Read review
