Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are searching for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is certainly one to consider.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler from the EcoTEC Plus range a suitable choice for 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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system's output level is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 measures 720 mm in height by 440 mm in width by 338 mm in depth.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 non-condensing or 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 an environmentally friendly boiler?

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.

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

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 Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 is rated "A".

What is the warranty period on a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system boiler?

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

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 - standard, combi or system?

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

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

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

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system's output level is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 615 System boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 boiler?

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 are 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 338 mm deep.

Is this Vaillant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 system would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After 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".

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

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 615 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
