Latest News: Aren't Vaillant great?
If you enjoy your boilers as much as we do at Build Team, you will know that Vaillant are a name you can trust.
Our particular favourite are the ecoTEC range. The combination boilers come in 3 different power outputs - 19, 24 and 28kW - and are the perfect solution for any Side Return - fitting snugly on the back wall, often positioned adjacent to the bi-folding doors, with a horizontal flue pointing directly outside. Simple! Just bare in the mind that higher output models do need a fair amount of gas at their disposal, and to comply with Gas Safe regulations, this often means the gas feed pipe running from the meter to the boiler needs to be minimum gauge of 22mm.
These boilers are very energy efficient too. With a SEDBUK Band 'A' rating, the Vaillant ecoTEC range are economical and as environmentally friendly as a fossil-fuelled boiler can be.
And just who are Vaillant? Well, we found ourselves asking the very same question, so we did a little research. Vaillant were established in 1874, by Johann Vaillant a tailor's son and German industrial pioneer. Today, the business remains a family concern - and as with most things of German origin in the construction sector, their products are well designed, carefully engineered and very reliable.
Think of a Vaillant boiler in your Side Return as the equivalent of having a BMW on your drive. You'll know it'll fire up in the morning, keep you warm and purr at top speed.
Finally, no Build Team are not agents of Vaillant, but we do love a good anorak story.
