The Vaillant EcoTec Plus 428HE gas open vent condensing boiler replaced a BAXI boiler, which had become problematic and where the main board had become defective. As the BAXI was 12 years old and suffered past problems, the Client decided to upgrade to a new Vaillant boiler as a direct replacement.
The fitting was straightforward with the pipework being altered slightly to accommodate the new boiler. The exhaust flu had to be altered also with minimal damage to the external brickwork.
We also recommended the installation of a magnetic filter, which is an efficient method of continually filtering/cleaning the boiler and radiator water as it circulates through the system.
The Magna Clean magnetic central core filter attracts the elements that produce corrosion and cleaning the filter annually at the boiler service will extend the life of the central heating system and in time, save money. For further details of this product select the link here.
