Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

When looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW might be a suitable option for you.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Is a Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler is 29 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

To most boiler engineers, the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi Vitodens 050-W would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What size is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW measures 707 mm in height and has a width of 400 mm and a depth of 350 mm.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would installing a Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from the initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years' warranty does the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi come with?

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.

Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is a Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi's output at 29 kW, which types of property would this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW size

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW measures 707 mm high and 400 mm wide by a depth of 350 mm.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is choosing the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler environmentally friendly?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

What warranty does the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler come with?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler covers you for 3 years.
