Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

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

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418

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

Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

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

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

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.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

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

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 has a rating of "A" .

Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Would the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler 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 - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Vaillant ecoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418?

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 are 600 mm [H] x 375 mm [W] x 295 mm [D].

EcoFIT Pure 418 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 has a rating of "A".

Does the Vaillant EcoFIT Pure 418 heat only boiler come with a warranty?
