Main Eco Compact 15kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Main Eco Compact 15kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Main Eco Compact 15kW if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Is a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Main Eco Compact 15kW system outputs at a maximum of 15 kW, so which types of property would this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Main Eco Compact 15kW System boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Main Eco Compact 15kW?

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

Is the Main Eco Compact 15kW condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Main Eco Compact 15kW improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Main Eco Compact 15kW system environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Main Eco Compact 15kW system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

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.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Main Eco Compact 15kW breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 5 years is included when you purchase the Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler through PlumbProud.

Main Eco Compact 15kW System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Main Eco Compact 15kW - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Is the Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is a Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler?

The Main Eco Compact 15kW measures 700 mm in height and has a width of 390 mm and a depth of 285 mm.

Is this Main boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Main Eco Compact 15kW.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

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

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

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

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

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

Am I covered if the Main Eco Compact 15kW system boiler breaks down?

A parts and labour warranty of 5 years is included when you purchase the Main Eco Compact 15kW boiler through PlumbProud.
