Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 a system, regular or combi boiler?

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 might be a suitable option for you.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system the right boiler 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 615 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 15 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615

Vaillant’s EcoTEC Plus 615 is 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system considered environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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

Would choosing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating 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 615, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 a standard, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is one you may wish to consider.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Should I install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler in my home?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System 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 EcoTEC Plus 615 system outputs at a maximum of 15 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 fit in my house?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 measures 720 mm in height and has a width of 440 mm and a depth of 338 mm.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Condensing gas boilers like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

How energy efficient is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler?

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

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% 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 615 has an ERP rating of "A".

Is this Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system covered by a warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler to new customers.
