Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 Boilers & Vaillant Gas ecoTEC Plus 418 Boilers
If you have a traditional open vented heating system and you’re looking for a boiler to enhance performance, both the Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 415 and the ecoTec Plus 418 are great options.
With outputs of 15kW and 18kW respectively, you simply need to select the model that most matches your usage needs.
A 15kW regular boiler is ideally suited to smaller properties, such as one or two-bedroom flats.
When your hot water and heating requirements are relatively low, you don’t need a high boiler output. In fact, using the lowest output that meets your usage requirements enables you to cut your fuel consumption and reduces your costs.
If you live in a larger property, however, the 18kW Vaillant Gas ecoTEC Plus 418 might be closer to what you need. The extra output means this model can be used to provide heat and hot water in properties up to the size of a medium-sized house with three bedrooms.
However, it is important to discuss your usage requirements and boiler output with an experienced technician or Gas Safe registered engineer before you commit to buying a particular model.
With expert advice, you can ensure that your new boiler will provide you with a consistent supply of hot water and heat, without using an excessive amount of fuel.
