Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 - regular, system or combi?

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 are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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 618 system boiler has an output rate of 18 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 618 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 is 720 mm [H] by 440 mm [W] by 372 mm [D] in size.

EcoTEC Plus 618 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 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 618 system good for the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

If you decide to install a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 618 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 is rated "A".

Does a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler come with a warranty period?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 5 years with the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler.

Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 - standard, combi or system?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this 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.

Would the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

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

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 618 System boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler?

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 has the following dimensions - 720 mm high, 440 mm wide, and 372 mm deep.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 condensing or non-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 energy efficient is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Is the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 618 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

Does the Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 system boiler come with a warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Vaillant Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 618 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.
