Controls & Features of the Viessmann Vitodens 100-W
A unique and standout feature of the latest Vitodens 100 is the Lambda Pro technology, which was previously only available in the 200 range. This ensures the gas valve constantly adjusts to the air and gas mix it receives, making sure it maintains maximum efficiency and burn rate.
The latest Vitodens 100 also includes an updated LCD touchscreen display with integrated Wi-fi, allowing you to control, diagnose the boiler and enable remote access to Viessmann support so that they can assist from afar and diagnose faults.
The touchscreen display also expands on the usual error code system and actually shows you which components have failed and may be causing the fault. This helps to alleviate the costs associated with diagnosing faults using a generic and broad error code.
Warranty: 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The warranty is a major part of buying any new boiler as if something goes wrong you want the reassurance that it will be repaired and back in working order as soon as possible.
The great news is that when you purchase your Viessmann boiler with Heatable, you will receive a 10-year warranty.
Price Point: 4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
