Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only has an output of 15 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What are the dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler?

Vaillant’s EcoTEC Plus 415 is 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

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.

Will installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating 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 Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 breaks down?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 5 years after installation.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 - regular, system or combi?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415?

The measurements of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 are 600 mm by 375 mm by 320 mm.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 - 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 EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 has an ERP rating of "A".

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 covers all repair-related costs for 5 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
