Replacing your home’s boiler can seem like a complicated process. While calling out an experienced team for boiler installation such as Wirral Plumbers is straightforward, many homeowners can get overwhelmed by the number of factors to keep in mind when choosing the brand of their boiler.
Research is vital when you’re planning on a boiler upgrade or replacement. That’s why we thought we would give you a little more information regarding one of our manufacturer partners, Vaillant. They are a well-known and widely trusted boiler brand, and thousands of homes across the UK house the ever-growing list of boilers that Vaillant offers.
But what makes this brand such a good choice for your Wirral home?
Vaillant boilers really do come with a 10-year guarantee. Since most boilers are expected to last around 15 years, this means that two-thirds of your boiler’s lifespan is guaranteed.
Boiler replacements aren’t cheap, so this guarantee gives you incredible peace of mind knowing you won’t have a huge surprise expense for the first decade after installing your Vaillant boiler.
To benefit from this incredible guarantee, make sure you meet the requirements:
- Your boiler must be installed with a Vaillant Boiler Protection Kit – This is a filter for your central heating system, designed specifically for Vaillant boilers. This keeps dirt out of the heating side of your system.
- The guarantee must be registered by a Vaillant Advance installer – This means the installer must be Gas Safe Registered and must have been observed and certified a Vaillant expert. Luckily for you, Wirral Plumbers is a Vaillant Advance installer!
Multiple Flue Options
Vaillant understands that different homes require different boiler setups. That’s why they offer not only horizontal and vertical flue options but rear flue options as well!
- Horizontal flues: (or standard flues) run to the outside wall from the top of the boiler.
- Vertical flues: typically go straight up through the roof from the top of the boiler
- Rear flues: run from the back of the boiler instead of the top, making it perfect for tighter spaces.
Quiet Mark Accreditation
Run by the Noise Abatement Society (NAS), Quiet Mark™ encourages companies to prioritise noise reductions within the design of everyday appliances. Vaillant boilers are one of only three boiler manufacturers to be awarded the Quiet Mark™, meaning your boiler won’t be contributing to noise pollution or driving you insane while heating your Wirral home.
High Water Flow Rate
Vaillant boilers have always been able to boast a high flow rate, but with their latest combi boiler range, they achieve a flow rate of up to 17.8 litres per minute on their ecoTEC Exclusive range.
Their ecoTEC Plus combi boiler, in particular, can deliver 20 litres of hot water to your tap in under 5 seconds, meaning you no longer require a cylinder. (Note: To make use of this impressive flow rate, you need to ensure your incoming water supply can deliver that water flow rate.)
Excellent Trustpilot Ratings
Reviews are one of the quickest ways to judge a company’s quality – and Vaillant has over 10,000 reviews on Trustpilot and sports an average rating of 4.6 out of 5. With more than 80% of the reviews being 5-star reviews, it’s safe to say that Vaillant boilers are trusted and well-loved across the UK.
