Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi suitable for my house or flat?

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 222-F 19kW Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 19 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW Combi boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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 222-F 19kW

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW's dimensions are 1,400 mm [H] x 600 mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The gas bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

If you are going to replace your current heat only or system boiler with the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW, you'll also need to budget for the removal of your hot water cylinder and/or expansion tank.

Please get in touch with PlumbProud if you would like information and guidance on the best course of action and we will share our advice with you.

Is this Viessmann boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi an environmentally friendly boiler?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

How long is the warranty period on the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW covers all repair-related costs for 3 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW - regular, system or combi?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi boiler is 19 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate 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.


Dimensions of the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW boiler

The size of the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW boiler is 1,400 mm high, 600 mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your gas bills.

Replacing an existing heat only or system boiler with the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW will also require our fitters to remove and dispose of your hot water cylinder/expansion tank.

Please contact PlumbProud for more information and guidance on the right course of action for you.

Is this Viessmann boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F gas Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi good for the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing a Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 222-F 19kW was given a 92% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW breaks down?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 19kW boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.
