The Vaillant Ecotec Plus 415 is a high-efficiency heat-only boiler that features a compact design and is simple to move from one location to another. Its small dimensions—approximately 600mm x 375mm x 340mm —enable excellent placement, flexibility, and ease during installation. It even can be installed inside a kitchen cupboard.

It has push-button programming, making it straightforward to use. It also features a built-in two-stage frost protection system so that it may maintain its high level of performance throughout the entire year.

The Pros and Cons

The Vaillant EcoTec 415 is most suitable for use in small dwellings. It can support a maximum of ten radiators and has a central heating output of 15 kW. However, if your home has more than ten radiators or more than one bathroom, you will need a boiler that has a larger output. 

A bigger residence requires the boiler to heat a larger quantity of hot water. Therefore, we recommend looking into Vaillant EcoTec Plus models that have outputs of 18 kW, 24 kW, 30 kW, and 35 kW.

PROS

The Vaillant EcoTec 415 is equipped with various controls, including push-button controls. It also has a 15 kW domestic hot water output making it ideal for a small household.

  • It is equipped with a large backlit plain text display which offers great visibility.
  • It has Push-button programming, which simplifies the operation and makes it more user-friendly.
  • Thanks to its high Erp of 94 percent, it is highly cost-effective to operate.
  • Features side panels that can be removed when necessary to facilitate easier access throughout the processes of installation, periodic maintenance, and repair work
  • 5-year guarantee as standard, with 7 years available when you book a Vaillant Advance installer or 10 years when fitted with a Boiler Protection Kit

CONS

While the EcoTEC Plus 415 may be able to heat up to ten radiators, a bigger household may find that it is insufficient. The following are some of the other drawbacks:

  • If you have more than 10 radiators in your home, you may wish to consider a higher boiler capacity.
  • You are still required to use both a hot water cylinder and a cold water cistern.

What is the difference between Vaillant EcoTEC Plus and Pro?

The filling loop that is integrated into the Plus range is beneficial when trying to maximize available space in a kitchen or similar setting. However, an external filling loop needs to be installed to use the Pro range.

Is Vaillant a good boiler?

Boilers made by Vaillant are noted for their lengthy lifespans and high level of precise engineering. In addition, it has a reputation for being an industry leader in creating new products. For example, the EcoTec Plus 415’s heat exchanger is made of high-quality aluminum, making it more durable, easier to maintain, and potentially cheaper to run. 

There is also a generous five-year guarantee from Vaillant. This warranty can be extended to seven to ten years using a Vaillant Advance installer to install the EcoTEC boilers. Notice a problem with your Vaillant boiler. It would be best if you first got in touch with your installer.

Our Verdict

The EcoTEC plus is, without a doubt, one of the most outstanding open vent systems available for purchase. It offers impressive efficiency, high performance, and superb usability, making it the ideal upgrade alternative for a conventional open-vented heating system. 

You can also reduce your overall carbon footprint by incorporating it into a system that uses solar or heat pump energy. Installing a boiler requires the expertise of a licensed gas-safe engineer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long are EcoTEC plus 415 boilers expected to last?

They have an average lifespan of between 10 and 15 years. However, keep in mind that all of this is dependent on how meticulously you follow the suggested maintenance schedule that the manufacturer provided.

How do you reset a Vaillant EcoTEC Plus 415?

The boiler has to be reset if the burner fails to ignite after five attempts or if the boiler stops working and switches to “Fault.” To manually reset the boiler, press the reset button (3) and hold it for one second. However, if you cannot fix the problem with the boiler on your own, it’s best to seek the assistance of an authorized gas-safe engineer.
