Viessmann has introduced the next-generation of its most popular gas-condensing boiler, the Vitodens 100-W.

The WiFi-integrated Vitodens 100-W’s new control platform makes commissioning and servicing the boiler easier, according to the company. It is now possible to monitor and make adjustments to customers’ boilers remotely. No third-party controls are required, meaning a Vitodens boiler with ViCare Thermostat provides homeowners with a load-compensating smartphone-controlled heating system.

The mechanical design of the Vitodens 100-W has reduced the number of spare parts typically needed for routine maintenance by about 50%, meaning Viessmann installers should be able to carry less stock.

At the same time as the new-generation Vitodens 100-W series goes on sale, in April, Viessmann will also launch the new Vitodens 111-W wall-mounted combi boiler. Intended for family homes where there is high hot water demand, the 111-W features a cylinder loading system and 46l integrated stainless steel storage tank, allowing it to provide a flow rate of up to 181l in 10 minutes. All models are hydrogen-ready, certified for a 20% hydrogen blend.

Two further versions of the Vitodens range will be introduced by September, in time for the 2021/2022 heating season; a heat-only 100-W, and the new Vitodens 050-W.
