Energy-efficient and will reduce your bills
The Vaillant ecoTEC Pro Combi Boiler has an ErP ‘A’ rating and an energy efficiency running performance of 94%. For optimum energy efficiency, there is a range of wired and wireless controls, including the capability to connect with a smart energy management system such as the vSMART™ smart technology app or the Vaillant VRC 700 heating control.
By controlling the boiler from your smartphone, computer or tablet or from one of the VRC 700 control panels, you can ensure your heating is managed sensibly and take advantage of additional features such as troubleshooting support if your boiler is malfunctioning.
As well as considering maximum energy efficiency, this boiler has other technological innovations as standard. The Vaillant ecoTEC Pro Combi Boiler is the flagship boiler in the eco range. Importantly, it features a steel heat exchanger which provides excellent reliability compared to similar boilers from competitors that utilise aluminium heat exchangers. The innovative technology utilised within the Vaillant ecoTEC Pro Combi Boiler also ensures high central heating and water flow rates, without the need for a water tank or cylinder.
The boiler is built to deliver low sound generation whilst running, and Vaillant has won awards for low decibel generation in this range.
As a wall-mounted and relatively compact and lightweight model, this is an easy to install boiler. The panels open at the side, meaning repair work can be conducted without causing disturbance. It can also be converted to LPG.
