Vaillant Boiler Prices

Vaillant manufactures upwards of 30 models in combi, conventional and system designs. Its boilers come in a range of sizes, from 12kW up to a huge 65kW, designed to meet the heating and hot water demands of differently sized homes.

The price of Vaillant boilers typically ranges from £800 to £1,500, but can cost up to £3,000 for large models. As a rule of thumb, the bigger the Vaillant machine you need, the more it will cost.

These prices are for the boiler only; they exclude installation costs. Installation typically costs between £500 and £1,500, depending on the complexity of the job.

What Size Vaillant Boiler Do You Need?

You should choose which boiler size is right for your home based on a number of factors, including how many bathrooms, taps, and radiators your property has.

As a rough guide, here’s the power output you’ll need from your boiler:

  • For a home with 1 bathroom and up to 10 radiators: 24kW to 27kW
  • For a home with 1 or 2 bathrooms and up to 15 radiators: 28kW to 34kW
  • For a home with 2 or more bathrooms and up to 20 radiators: 35kW to 42kW

Vaillant Combi Boiler Prices

A combination or ‘combi’ boiler heats water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap or switch on your central heating. This means that unlike a conventional or system boiler, you won’t need a separate hot water cylinder or a cold water tank stored in your loft.

Vaillant makes a wide range of combi boilers that cost anywhere from £850 to £2,520. The company’s combi boilers come in ecoFIT pure, ecoTEC plus, ecoTEC pro and ecoTEC exclusive Green iQ models.

Vaillant Conventional Boiler Prices

A conventional boiler, also known as a heat-only or regular boiler, needs both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to feed hot water to your radiators and taps/shower. These will both usually need to be stored in your loft.

Vaillant make conventional boilers in the ecoFIT pure and ecoTEC plus models that range in output from 12kW to 35kW. The price of Vaillant conventional boilers starts at £670 and goes up to £1,400.

Vaillant System Boiler Prices

Vaillant manufacture system boilers in the ecoFIT pure, ecoTEC plus, and ecoTEC exclusive Green iQ models. Prices start at £800 and go up to £3,000.

A system boiler heats water directly from the mains when you turn on your central heating, warming your radiators.

However, when you turn on your tap or shower, the hot water from your boiler is first pumped through a cylinder stored in the upper levels of your home.
