Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 fit in my house?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide, and 295 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only be a suitable choice?

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 has an ERP rating of "A".

Will I be covered if the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 a regular, combi or system boiler?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler may be worth considering.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only 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 Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only is 18 kW, so which types of property is this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 in millimetres

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is 600 mm high by 375 mm wide by 295 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 non-condensing or condensing?

This Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

If you decide to install a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 was rated at 94% 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 Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418.

Is this Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only covered by a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler covers you for 2 years.
