Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Should I choose a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler is 18 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618?

The dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 are 720 mm tall, 440 mm wide, and 372 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system would be a good choice for the environment.

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 618 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 618 has a rating of "A".

If the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 covers all repair-related costs for 5 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Is a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler has an output level of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system EcoTEC Plus would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 dimensions

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler measures 720 mm [H] x 440 mm [W] x 372 mm [D] in size.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 non-condensing or condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 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.

How does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler rate environmentally?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618.

What length of warranty does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 come with?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.
