VAILLANT ECOTEC PRO 30 COMBI - REVIEW

undefined

Today we are taking a look at Vaillant’s top 30kW combi boiler, the ecoTec Pro 30. With over a century of experience, Vaillant are at the forefront of developments in boiler technology, with a healthy dose of German engineering to top it all off. If you’re looking for a suitable boiler for a small to mid-sized home with up to three bedrooms and one bathroom with an extra boost of hot water, then the ecoTec Pro 30 could be the boiler for you.

Will the ecoTec Pro 30 be suitable for my home?

Unlike the 24 and 28kW versions of the ecoTec Pro, the ecoTec pro 30 offers both a heating output of 24kw, as well as a 30kW hot water output. The Pro 30 will be more suitable for medium-sized properties with one bathroom and three bedrooms, so you won't have to wait an extra 10 minutes for your bath to fill up. However, if you're looking to run a bath and shower at the same time, you will be far better off with a conventional or system boiler. At Hometree, we offer a wide range of Vaillant boilers and can advise you on which boiler suits your home best.

Controls

The controls on the boiler itself aren’t anything special due to the standard hot water temperature controls and timer. One of the key benefits of the boiler is its fully integrated digital display for pressure levels, fault codes should the boiler need servicing or repair, and the temperature of the hot water in the flow pipes.

Enjoy a free smart thermostat

All Hometree boiler installations come with a free Honeywell Lyric T6 smart thermostat.

Vaillant also offer both mechanical and digital controls. Their mechanical controls let you set 24-hour schedules for your heating, whereas digital controls allow up to 7 days of programming. However, if you'd want to go a step further and fancy smart controls, you should look at the the Vaillant vSMART. This smart thermostat is a highly intelligent and modern device that will give you even more control over your heating. It’s been kept quite simple with regard to its design, but it also offers self-learning features and the ability to set schedules and temperatures straight from the smartphone app. If you’d like to find out more about the Vaillant vSMART, check out our review here.

Size

The Vaillant ecoTec Pro 30 is relatively small in size at only 720mmx440mmx340mm, which is quite compact compared to some of its competitors. However, if you are interested in an even smaller combi boiler option, the Vaillant ecoFit Pure 825 may be a good choice, or have a look at the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 25Si Compact.

Warranty

If you decide to install a Vaillant boiler with a Vaillant Advanced Installer, you will benefit from an extended warranty of up to 10 years with your boiler installation. Given that Vaillant currently offer a standard 5-year warranty with this boiler, it’s certainly something you’d want to look at. If you are interested in receiving an extended warranty for your new boiler, we'd be more than happy to help since we’re a proud member of the Vaillant Advanced Installer scheme.

Energy Efficiency

Vaillant have done a great job with the ecoTec Pro 30. The boiler is highly efficient with an A grade for efficiency and an energy efficiency rating of 89.3%. “What exactly does the grade and the percentage mean?”, you may ask. Well, the rating is calculated by the ErP Directive, which actively tests each new boiler and energy product to ensure that they pass certain criteria before they are installed in homes. Each boiler is judged and tested on their performance, carbon footprint and their overall energy efficiency. It’s safe to say that Vaillant can live up to the ecoTec range’s name due to their brilliant efficiency rating. So, if you’d like to make savings on your energy bills, the ecoTec Pro 30 is certainly a great choice.
