Q What kind of fuel does your boiler use?

Introducing Viessmann 35kw Boilers

Viessmann has 35kW options in all of three key types of boilers, so that’s combi, regular and system.

As a quick reminder, a combi boiler provides both heat and hot water but don’t need to have water tanks or cylinders installed so, not surprisingly, they are the most popular choice in the UK.  They do struggle to cope when hot water is needed from more than one tap at the same time, so it might not be a great choice for busy households.

A regular boiler is a more traditional way of heating the home. They’re also known as conventional or heat only systems, and they need a cylinder in which to store the hot water and a storage tank for the cold water. This type of boiler can be perfect for large homes with more than one bathroom as they can happily supply hot water to more than one outlet at the same time.

The system boiler, is similar to the regular boiler, but it only needs a hot water cylinder; there’s no need for the cold-water storage tank as the hot water is pumped directly from the system boiler. Again, these are perfect for the larger home with high demands on the hot water system. Chek out some of the best sytem boilers here.

So, coming back to our 35kW boilers, this is at the upper end of the power output for most boiler ranges, so you’ll likely have a large property to supply with heat and hot water.  That usually means that these are a good choice for properties with a minimum of 3 bedrooms plus two bathrooms and those bathrooms are often in use at the same time.

Most modern boilers do adjust their output according to demand, so it’s not going to cost a lot more in running costs for a higher kW. Where there can be a price difference is in the cost of purchasing the boiler, to begin with.

What features are there on a Viessmann 35kw boiler?

Tado°

Viessmann boilers are compatible with the tado° thermostat and smartphone app. tado° gives you complete control over your heating system and allows you to see just how much energy you saved every month. This innovative system can also automatically reduce usage when everyone is out but once someone has returned home, then it switches the boiler back on.

Touch Screen Displays

We love the new LCD touchscreen control panel. It’s backlit making it easy to read and use when it’s dark.  There’s also a wireless remote-control option.

 

Warranty

We can’t talk about Viessmann boilers without mentioning their 12-year warranty. That’s because all of the 35kW boilers we mention in this article come with a 5-year warranty as standard, but that can be extending to a whopping twelve years when fitted by a Viessmann Trained Installer and with payment of an additional fee.

Before leaping into paying for the extended warranty, do take a look at our boiler cover, it may be a better option for your home.

Q What kind of fuel does your boiler use?

Should I get a Viessmann 35kw Combi Boiler?

The size of your boiler is measured in kilowatts (kW), and it’s this which tells us how much energy a boiler can output in the form of heat.  So, the more heat and hot water you need, the higher the kW of your boiler needs to be.

The 35kW boiler is generally best suited to larger homes with up to 15 radiators. If you have ten or fewer radiators, then the chances are that a 25kW boiler is going to be more than powerful enough for your needs.

It used to be recommended to oversize your boiler to take into account all the boiler heat, which was lost due to poor efficiency. However, boilers are now so efficient that there’s no need to purchase a boiler with a higher kW than you need.  

A boiler which is underpowered will struggle to function in the way that you need it to which may mean radiators are not getting as warm as they should or a lack of hot water reaching bathroom taps.
