Main Eco Compact 15kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Main’s Eco Compact 15kW - system, regular or combi?

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Would the Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Main Eco Compact 15kW system is 15 kW, so which types of property is this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Main Eco Compact 15kW are

The Main Eco Compact 15kW's dimensions are 700 mm [H] x 390 mm [W] x 285 mm [D].

Eco Compact 15kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Main Eco Compact 15kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Main Eco Compact 15kW.

Does a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler come with a warranty period?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years following installation.

Main Eco Compact 15kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Main Eco Compact 15kW fit into?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Would the Main Eco Compact 15kW system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Main Eco Compact 15kW system's output at 15 kW, which types of property would this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler?

The dimensions of the Main Eco Compact 15kW are 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 285 mm deep.

Eco Compact 15kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Main Eco Compact 15kW system a good choice for the environment?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will choosing a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Main Eco Compact 15kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Main Eco Compact 15kW is "A".

How long is the warranty period on a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.
