In this guide, we’ll take a look at the Vaillant combi boiler range, including some of their key benefits, to help you make an informed decision for your heating needs.
What is a Combi Boiler?
A combi (combination) boiler is a type of domestic boiler that combines a home’s central heating and hot water production into one unit. Vaillant’s combi boilers are designed to provide customers with hot water almost instantly by taking water directly from the mains and heating it upon usage.
Compared to conventional boilers that store water in a separate cylinder until it’s needed, a combi boiler starts this process upon request, making hot water almost instantly available.

Vaillant Combi Boiler Advantages
Combi boilers offer several advantages over traditional boilers and water storage tanks. Firstly, they are compact and can perform the functions of two appliances, taking up minimal storage space. In fact, they can fit easily into a standard kitchen cupboard, seamlessly blending in with the decor.
Moreover, combi boilers take their water supply directly from the mains, resulting in a substantial flow pressure that ensures rapid and uninterrupted hot water supply. They do not rely on gravity to collect water, which can lead to pooling or slow heating speeds in conventional boilers.
Combi boilers can be remotely controlled by technology such as smart thermostats or smartphone apps, providing convenience and peace of mind to homeowners. The water produced by combi boilers is clean and safe to drink, as it has not been stored in a tank for long periods, reducing the likelihood of contamination.
Furthermore, combi boilers are cheap to run as gas, their preferred fuel, is cost-effective and energy-efficient. Most modern combi boilers have been designed to minimize sound output, making them quieter than traditional boilers. They are also versatile, as they can run on a variety of fuels and are abundant in terms of replacement part availability, ensuring quick and affordable repairs when needed.
When Should You Replace A Boiler
As a general rule of thumb, any boiler 15 years or older should be replaced. In the time elapsed since the boiler’s installation, the constant advancement in modern technology means upgrading to a newer boiler will work out more efficient, cheaper, and safer.
Any boiler with signs of serious degradation, function failure, or that has been ‘condemned’ by an expert heating engineer must be immediately disconnected and replaced for safety reasons as well as heating convenience.
Vaillant Combi Boiler Prices
Vaillant combi boilers cost between £2,445-£4,000, depending on the size and model of the boiler selected to heat your home (boiler and installation). Being a premium boiler brand, with a new Vaillant combi, you get what you pay for, an excellent product that, from its efficient performance, can save you money in the long run.
Opting for a potentially cheaper boiler may result in having to cover replacement or repair costs due to product inferiority. Budget boilers produce budget performances and can leave you out of pocket when they let you down.
In conclusion, Vaillant combi boilers are an excellent option for those seeking efficient, environmentally friendly heating solutions. Their range of boilers offers premium quality and eco-friendliness at a reasonable price.
