Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 a combi, system or 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.

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.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 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 ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only EcoTEC Plus would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 stands at 600 mm tall, 375 mm wide and 320 mm deep.

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only a good choice for the environment?

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.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

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

Vaillant’s EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 - standard, combi or system?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler may be worth considering.

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.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for 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 boiler installers would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415?

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 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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".

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 EcoTEC Plus 415 has a rating of "A" .

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
