Why Choose Vaillant?
Vaillant condensing boilers retain as much energy as possible by extracting the latent heat from exhaust fumes as a secondary energy source. This leads to reduced energy loss and an A rating under SEDBUK (Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the United Kingdom) guidelines. This energy-saving engineering is environmentally friendly as it reduces the levels of harmful gases emitted.
Vaillant offer various combination boilers, system boiler and open-vent boilers. Between them, this impressive range of boilers can cater to the majority of homes of any size and type from one bedroom apartments to households with more than three bathrooms. Their products are all extensively tested to ensure resilience and reliability and their designs are intelligently crafted so that all the boilers are as easy to install, operate and maintain as possible. Several of the boilers have been awarded the Quiet Mark accreditation in recognition of their quiet operating noise.
Efficiency plays an important role in any boiler. Vaillant claim that replacing a boiler which was installed prior to 2003 with one of their A rated models could reduce your central heating bills by a third and cut your home’s CO2 emissions by 800 kilograms a year.
