ecoTEC plus combi

High efficiency combination boiler range.

Extremely reliable and displaying all the in-built quality Vaillant is known for, the ecoTEC plus is clearly one of the best combi solutions available today. The ecoTEC plus combi boiler is available in a range of power outputs to meet the heating requirement of your home. All ecoTEC plus boilers offer low energy consumption and premium components to give outstanding performance. Each one is ultra-quiet, awarded the Quiet Mark for innovative reduced-noise design by the Noise Abatement Society, and designed for a peaceful home.

It’s smart, too. When you don’t need as much heat, it will reduce itself to just 16% of its maximum output – meaning greater energy efficiency and lower bills for you.

What Is Boiler Modulation?

Boiler modulation is when a boiler automatically changes the heat output to suit the demand for heat.

Boiler modulation not only saves energy, prolongs boiler life but also makes the heating within your home more comfortable by maintaining a constant temperature rather than over heating the property and letting it cool down too far.

Boiler modulation rates are shown as a ratio. For example, a boiler that has a ratio of 3:1 would be able to modulate from 100% output to 33%. A boiler with a modulation ratio of 10:1 would be able to modulate its output from 100% to 10% with a total of 10 different heat outputs.

Using a 30Kw boiler as a working example:

If your property only required a very small increase in heat the 10:1 boiler would fire at 3Kw and the 3:1 boiler would fire at 10Kw. However, a traditional non-modulating boiler would fire at 30Kw consuming unnecessary gas and overheating the property.
