“Vaillant, A Valliant partner”

published 02/11/2007

Strong, Hard wearing, lost lasting, good quality

Sometimes 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...

“Simply the best”

published 21/12/2000

The best

Cost

When my husband was a gas engineer, he used to do what were known as foreigners. This didn't mean he beat up immigrants, it meant taking on jobs outside of normal work. I think other expressions for it is are on the side (but I don't like that one!), or thumbers. Him and a chum would fit central...

I seem to have a problem with gas. Ha-ha! Very funny. Not in the bake-bean way. No. Having had a host of problems at work with annoying heating problems through the month I was none to pleased to hear our Vaillant acting up again. Okay, so here’s the unit’s history. We had it installed when we...

“The big beast”

published 17/10/2002

Very efficient

Very 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...

Sturdy, practical, powerful, easy on the eye

Expensive

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...

Reliable, robust, quiet, easy to install/service

Maybe the one disadvantage is the price

In 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...

Not for me

published 09/10/2008

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.

Not for me

none that I can think of

unreliable

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...

“ gasket seal”

economical

expensive

We had an eco tec plus 831 installed about 3 years ago. Top price, and according to the fitter, "all singing & all Dancing". We have had 3 trouble free years. But a month or so ago we had a letter from Vaillant saying that a part had to be fitted as our model must have been delivered without it...

Reliable & efficient

Too 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...

I enjoyed trouble free use of this boiler until it reached about 5 and thereafter every couple of years it would break down, faults have been defective diaphragm in the changeover valve, defective pressure relief valve and failure of the main control board. The boiler is now 10 years old and...
