Viessmann enhances specification market offer with new Vitodens 050-W combi boiler
- More homes can experience the quality and reliability of a Viessmann boiler
- Vitodens 050-W’s compact size and smart design offers more flexibility for retrofits and reduced spare parts costs
- 3 year warranty as standard
Viessmann is making reliable boilers, with high quality materials and parts, available to more UK customers with the launch of the Vitodens 050-W. The gas fired condensing boiler extends the Vitodens range by adding a new combi boiler targeted at the specification sector. The Vitodens 050-W will be on display at Ecobuild (March 3-5 2015, ExCeL, stand no. N 3130).
Suitable for the specification market as well as one-off installations, the boiler’s highlights are its compact design; in part enabled due to a reduction in the flue-to-fittings height, at only 707 mm high it has an installation height of 825 mm; and its quiet operation. Importantly, it is also a suitable replacement for outdated boilers in flats and apartments where up to five boilers on different floors can be connected to one vertical flue system.
The Vitodens 050-W has been engineered to offer installers and end-users lower spare part costs by ensuring that components, many of which are proven components from platform products, can be replaced individually. It is an advantage over other boilers which may require a complete gas train or circuit board replacement for a single component fault. Maintenance is straightforward because the service-relevant components are easily accessible from the front. As with the Vitodens 100-W, weather compensation can be incorporated with the simple addition of an inexpensive outdoor sensor, as the circuit board already incorporates the software for weather compensation operation. In addition, the control unit is prepared ready for plug-in time clocks and wireless receivers.
At the heart of the boiler is Viessmann’s unique Inox-Radial heat exchanger. Constructed from high quality stainless steel it is corrosion resistant and covered by a 10 year warranty, while the standard warranty on the boiler is three years.
“It has always been Viessmann’s intention to enhance its offer to the specification sector, by continuing to develop products that meet this sector’s needs. This is proven by the launch of the Vitodens 050-W. As a premium brand, Viessmann has always focused on the one-off installation sector and with the Vitodens 050-W, we now have a perfect product that suits the specifier market too. Even when attractively priced, our standards of product quality and performance are consistently implemented,” says Darren McMahon, Viessmann marketing director.
