Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Vaillant’s EcoTEC Plus 615 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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 house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 are

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 are 720 mm [H] x 440 mm [W] x 338 mm [D].

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system an energy-efficient boiler?

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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

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

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 has a rating of "A".

What warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler come with?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler has an output rate of 15 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler is 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

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

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 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.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system be a suitable choice?

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 615 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.
