Why choose the Vitodens 100-W boiler?
As with all Viessmann gas condensing boilers, the Vitodens 100-W is equipped with stainless steel Inox-Radial heat exchangers.
Quite simply, this means that the stainless steel heat exchanger will last for donkeys years, which rivals competitors like Worcester Bosch as they use plastic heat exchangers which are prone to wear and breakages.
This technology brings with it an extremely high efficiency rate of 98 percent and exceptionally reliable and efficient operation during its long service life.
Viessmann guarantees the Inox-Radial heat exchanger for ten years against leaks resulting from corrosion and Boiler Central offers a unique 15 Year warranty on all installed Viessmann new Boilers!
About Viessmann’s superb 4-pipe system:
Most noteworthy, is that Viessmann Vitodens system boilers up to 35 kW installed together with a Vitocell 200 or 300 unvented cylinder become the perfect combo when adhering to G3 building regulations.
This negates the need for an energy cut-off valve and a cylinder overheat thermostat, being integrated into the boiler.

What about the cost with higher KW boilers?
Finally, In our experience customer’s ask us several questions regarding boilers and the heating costs but one which always pops up seems to be: will a higher KW boiler cost me more to run?
It seems like an obvious answer, but actually the answer is no.
You will heat your home faster with a larger KW boiler with a higher output and then enter simmer mode to keep the water hot.
The smaller boilers will stay firing high for longer to ensure correct radiator temperature to give you the optimum temperature for your home, making them use more gas.
