Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only 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 Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only is 15 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 are

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 measures 600 mm in height by 375 mm in width by 320 mm in depth.

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

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 boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only be a suitable choice?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 EcoTEC Plus 415, the ERP rating is "A".

Is this Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only covered by a warranty?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting 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".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler

The size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler is 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide, and 320 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

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

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler?

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.
