Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler suitable 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?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is 600 mm [H] by 375 mm [W] by 295 mm [D] in size.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure gas Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only considered environmentally friendly?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418, the ERP rating is "A".

If the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Would the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only's output is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


The size of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler measures 600 mm [H] x 375 mm [W] x 295 mm [D] in size.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418.

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 Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

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.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 has been given a rating of 94% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

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

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 boiler?

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