Why Viessmann Vitodens is the best boiler to buy and install
For a start, and simply speaking, all boils down to RELIABILITY, and to the perfect design and the robust manufacturing of this appliance and its parts, which ensure RELIABILITY, comfort and deliver first class performance. (Just look at it in the picture above, and look at the effort went in building such robust appliance that guarantees longevity).
Viessmann products (gas condensing boilers) which ever series you go for 050-100-200, wall mounted, floor standing storage combi etc come with phenomenally robustly built boiler parts (reliable gas valve/strong fan, jet pump, anti corrosion burner and most importantly a solid steel Inox-Radial heat ex changer that the Viessmann team are so confident about it and that is why they are offering 10 year warranty on it, add to the above a solid well manufacture 8 liters expansion vessel that actually that does what its intended to do, and backlit LCD touchscreen).
Let me tell you here; we here at PCH Gas, Plumbing & Heating Engineers love immeasurably Viessmann brand and it is the secret behind our good reputation. Reasons are: a) First, It is as stated on their website that their boilers are the best and No 1 in Germany, and this is a fact, and let me surprise you further this brand dominate the market in the US, Canada as well as large part of the Middle East (the Golf in particular).
It is important to mention that Viessmann has been providing heating & hot water solutions for decades, both for the domestic and and commercial premises. Its great design, its simplicity to install (you get combined PRV and condensate connection) and its straightforwardness to use, let alone the reliability and the affordable price all Viessmann products come with help us as keen engineer in providing the perfect and most reliable solution to our customers, which ultimately help us as a proud Gas Safe & Plumbing & heating engineers to keep our reputation high.
“For a system to be reliable: a reliable appliance must be installed by competent dedicated trained engineer”.
I could tell you here that specifically speaking the Viessmann Vitodens 100 W whether it is the combination-system-or regular boiler is very reliable, easy-to-use, and install boiler. The Vitodens 100 W Combi (which is a central heating system/ instantaneous water heater in a box) is increasingly becoming the most favorite with householders and installers alike through out the UK purely down to reliability and longevity.
It comes with compact dimensions, reasonable weight, and more importantly super quiet.
It is highly efficient with a SEDBUK (2009) Band A rating for energy efficiency (89.5%).
Every time we tested the product we got almost 98 % efficiency readings. Viessmann Vitodens comes with an impressive unbeatable 10 year warranty on the main element and 5 on the boiler as a whole when installed by Viessmann registered approved engineer. Name another manufacturer so confident about their products or provide such confident generous warranty on the main element, truly it is undoubtedly the best boiler to buy or install.
Seedbul 2009 89.5% efficiency.
Quiet boiler so there is not a big problem in it has to be installed in a bedroom.
User friendly control.
Straight forward access for engineer for maintenance and repair.
built in Robust filling loop.
Combined PRV and condensing pipe (easier to install if access to outside wall is difficult).
Considering the efforts went into building the quality parts it is attractively priced.
1-6 modulating gas valve.
Steel heat ex changer.
The new revised improved version comes with friendly easy to use touchscreen.
My second best boiler to buy is Vaillant Eco Tec Pro and Vaillant Eco tec Plus boiler
best boiler to buy in 2017?
I would say Vaillant Eco Tec (Whether we are talking about the Pro or the Plus) is my second favorite best boiler to buy and install in 2016-2017.
Many probably would ask why? I put it to you simply: it is all boils down to:
a) Vaillant boilers offer great efficiency and magnificent reliability specially if installed by decent engineer who clean (flush), chemically treat, and protect the boiler/system against corrosion, ( the boiler comes with solid components), the Revised version R4 is truly a mater piece of engineering that we never had any problem with.
b) Ease of use and installation. Screen so easy to deal with.
c) Beautifully designed, I genuinely believe it is the most good looking boiler out there (this boiler is a result of years of research and improvement on older styles and that must be hugely appreciated) and all parts are so easy to access for service and maintenance.
These two boilers above only break down when unprofessionally installed by incompetent person.
Now, let me tell you engineering wise why Vaillant Eco Tec Pro Plus is a good boiler to buy;
Vaillant Eco Tec boilers are 90% plus efficient 90.02 %, it means that when you put £1 worth of natural gas money you get £0.90p plus worth of heat, all down to the perfect design and make of the stainless steel heat exchanger. This rating sits proudly at the very top of SEDBUK recommendations and its ratings, rated as A-range condensing boiler, note the use of plastic flue terminal in all condensing boilers, which means the heat has been extracted as far as possible of the boiler’s product of combustion.
Vaillant Eco Tec Pro-Plus is my second best boiler to buy.
For a small, medium and large sized properties with one or two bathrooms, out of all Vaillant products I recommend the Eco Tec. it provides you with a class-leading 11- 17 l/m performance deending on the boiler size, which is great if you compare it to all other combi boiler manufacturers.
Add to that improved control box from earlier models, improved divertor valve (solid ball and motor), which is now incredibly more reliable to cope with the heavily corroded sludgey systems out there, a smart intuitive interface made by Nokia (to my knowledge) with a clear display for temperatures and commissioning settings, and the all new circuit proof technology embedded in the PCB, which means they took a step further to eliminate any potential of your boiler going wrong leaving you wondering why.
As a keen Gas and Heating Engineer, I believe it is by far my second best boiler to buy and install in your home in 2016-2017, and sometimes it jump to number 1 to be the first boiler to install as the boiler dimension are more flexible with tight places and can be fitted in a kitchen cupboard and has a shorter flue elbow unlike Viessmann.
The efficiency and reliability in the boilers above boils down to the robust quality of all components within the boiler, in particular the heat exchanger, and the NTCs, and the VW divertor valve (believe it or not yes you have car parts inside your those German brands Viessmann, Vaillant boiler).
Now the design and molding of the main element: The German engineers spotted that softening metal instead of melting improves quality, reliability and performance of that metal, a process known as a FSW friction stir welding. This is truly a great boiler to buy and install. Very important note: boilers such as those high efficiency boiler must be well and adequately protected against system sludge and that is achieved by having a strong magnetic filter installed and your system thoroughly and regularly cleaned (any effective method would do) and your system pressure always maintained correctly to the right pressure to element “air ingress”.
The Vaillant Eco Tec (my second choice as the best boiler to buy) is high performance combi condensing boiler, it suits multiple property types, comes with flexibility of siting garage, utility e.g, the boiler interface comes with intuitive simple to use controls, and above all reliability and 5 and 7 years warranty (if installed by Vaillant “Advance” listed engineer ), beside the option to extended the warranty if required.
I must mention here that Vaillant has been and for decades providing a heating and hot water solutions. The addition of a well known the reliable Eco Tec model gives more reason for you to believe in Vaillant as a company to trust to buy the best boiler from.
