Do you need a Vaillant Boiler Replacement? Vaillant is a leading boiler brand with years of experience of designing and supplying quality boilers and heating systems.
Founded in 1874, they have engineered heating systems for millions of people around the world. The company prides itself on innovation, even designing the first gas fired water heating system. These days they focus on producing economical and environmentally friendly systems. As a result you can always rely on Vaillant boilers.
An Extensive Range of Vaillant Boilers
The German company has a range of products including combi, system and vent boilers. Vaillant has also launched an app called vSMART, which is available for Apple and Android devices. It allows users to better manage their gas use from afar. In particular, it means the heating can be switched on or off from remote locations. Therefore the desired temperature can be reached before you arrive home and energy can be saved.
Combi boilers take up little space as they manage the heating system and are connected to the water mains. This means that water is heated as it is needed and there is no need for a cylinder or a storage tank. System boilers do need a cylinder to store hot water but, because all the components are built in, there isn’t a need for a tank in the loft. Finally, a vent boiler uses both a storage cylinder and a water tank to provide hot water and heating. They are very efficient but do take up more space.
Vaillant has a handy ‘Boiler Finder’ on its website. If you don’t know what you need, it can recommend the type of heating system best suited to your home based on the information you provide.
It’s vital that you look after your boiler. After-all, you don’t want a cold shower or no heating in the middle of that first cold snap. There’s also the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. A well-maintained boiler that is regularly serviced will keep you safe. Regular servicing will also ensure efficiency and save you money on your heating bills. It even makes your boiler last longer. Vaillant recommends having your appliance serviced annually; this also validates the guarantee.

How do you know when it’s time to replace your existing boiler?
A typical gas boiler should last between 10 and 15 years, and more towards the latter end if you get it serviced regularly. It’s a good idea to start saving for a new boiler if it’s approaching 15 years of use, but the plumber or heating engineer who does your next boiler service will be able to give you an idea of what condition it’s in. They can also advise you on boiler replacement costs, which may not be as much as you think.
If your boiler keeps failing then it’s more than likely to need a replacement, and you’ll save money on regular repairs in the long run. Other signs to look out for are escalating heating bills (an inefficient boiler uses more energy to heat up), strange hissing or popping noises, if your radiators are heating up slightly, but not as much as they should, or if there are any strange smells coming from the unit. The latter is particularly vital to have checked as it could be a sign of carbon monoxide gas, as mentioned above.
