Viessmann launches new range of condensing boilers

8th Aug 2012

Viessmann has launched a new range of gas-fired condensing boilers which are notable for being more cost-effective and take much less time to install. 

Available as both system and combination boilers and in outputs of 19-35kW, the Vitodens 100-W condensing boiler can be installed in a variety of locations and is ideally suited for homes where space is at a premium, which makes the unit a perfect solution for social housing.

Viessmann have delivered a new range of condensing boilers which meet the demands of both consumers and installers. Not only is installation simpler and quicker and therefore more cost-effective – aided by condense connections and pressure relief valves being combined – the unit meets consumer demand for high performance and ease of use.

Other stand-out features and benefits of the range include:

  • Smaller design – the largest 35kW model is 350mm by 700mm
  • Weight has been reduced by up to 4kg thanks to a new case design
  • It’s one of the quietest boilers in the product group
  • Low emission combustion
  • Features a maximum flue length of 19 metres
  • A user control interface with LCD screen and digital plug-in controls enables wireless adjustment of settings in conjunction with a Vitotrol 100 controller
  • Service time is reduced as parts are easily accessible from the front of the boiler

“As one of the leading international providers of heating systems, the UK market is very important to Viessmann. Installers have already demonstrated their support of the previous 100-W WB1B range, and many have commented how receptive customers are to the products,” commented Viessmann UK’s managing director Graham Russell.

“This new generation takes a highly successful platform and improves on it with tried and tested components, as well as providing the additional, unique features that add real value to installers,” he added.

The Vitodens 100-W achieves a standard seasonal efficiency of up to 90.4% thanks to  Viessmann’s Inox-radical German made heat exchanger, which benefits from a 10 year warranty. Featuring a stainless steel heating surface condensate can run off downwards which creates a permanent self-cleaning effect to achieve a longer service life.

Consumers can achieve additional savings of up to 12% – around £88 a year – by connecting the unit to an outdoor temperature sensor which automatically switches to weather compensation mode.
