Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is a Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi is 32 kW, so which types of property would this Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler for your home, you need to think about "flow rates" as well as output rates. This Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

This indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat then distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the higher the flow rate you will require.

However, all combi boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

This means that they can only heat and distribute water at the rate it enters the property (the "mains pressure" rate). For example, if your mains pressure is 11 litres per minute, this will be the highest flow rate you can achieve even if your boiler's flow rate is 17l/m.

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 dimensions of the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW boiler?

Viessmann’s Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is 1,400 mm tall, 600 mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your gas each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

Please bear in mind that replacing your existing system or heat only boiler with the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW will also involve the removal of your hot water cylinder and/or cold water tank.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the combi Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW boiler energy efficient?

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

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

If you decide to install a Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW scored an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW, the ERP Heat rating is "A" and the ERP Water rating is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi boiler if it breaks down?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 3 years following installation.

Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW boiler is a combi boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is a Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

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 32/35kW combi boiler is 32 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would likely recommend that this Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

If you are thinking about installing a combi boiler like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW in your home, you should consider flow rates as well as output rates. This Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat up and send to your radiators, taps and showers at any one time. The more taps and showers that could be in use simultaneously or the greater the number of radiators you have, the higher the flow rate you need.

However, you should establish what the mains pressure is at your property as a combi boiler can only heat the water that comes into your home.

For example, 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 capacity. Typically, a power shower will require 10 litres of water per minute.

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 222-F 32/35kW boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is 1,400 mm tall, 600 mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your gas bills.

It's important to note that if you are thinking about replacing your current heat only or system boiler with the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW, your hot water cylinder and/or cold water tank will also have to be removed.

Please contact PlumbProud for professional information and guidance on the best course of action and we’ll share our advice with you.

Is the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How does the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi rate environmentally?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW combi at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

If the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Viessmann Vitodens 222-F 32/35kW covers all repair-related costs for 3 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
