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

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

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

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

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You also need to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for where you live.

A combi boiler's flow rate is the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your radiators, taps and showers at the same time. This Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, combi boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

If your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate.

Combi boilers also struggle when multiple people in your home want to use hot water at the same time - for example, someone running the hot water tap in the kitchen and two people wanting to shower in separate bathrooms.

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.


The size of the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW in millimetres

The dimensions of the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW are 707 mm tall, 400 mm wide, and 350 mm deep.

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

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

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

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, right through to the point of final disposal.

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

Does the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler come with a warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 3 years is included with the Viessmann Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW boiler.

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?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Should I install a Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 29 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You also need to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for where you live.

A combi boiler's flow rate is the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your radiators, taps and showers at the same time. This Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, combi boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

If your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate.

Combi boilers also struggle when multiple people in your home want to use hot water at the same time - for example, someone running the hot water tap in the kitchen and two people wanting to shower in separate bathrooms.

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 are the proportions of a 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 non-condensing or condensing?

The Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will choosing to install a Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

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

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use, right through to final disposal.

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

Does the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW combi boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W 29kW covers all repair-related costs for 3 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
