About the Viessmann Vitodens 200-W
With Viessmann’s experience dealing with high-efficiency technology, there is an option of this gas condensing boiler ideal for:
- Detached houses
- Semi-detached houses
- Apartment buildings
The Vitodens 200-W comes fitted with a large touchscreen display allowing for easy control. The boiler can also be controlled remotely using your smartphone and Viessmann’s Vitotrol app, which allows for remote internet-controlled heating operation of the heating circuit.
In addition to providing control of the system, the Vitotrol app will also react accordingly to where you are in relation to the property. So for instance, if you’re leaving the property, you can lower the temperature with just a simple command.
On top of this, the app The Vitodens 200-W can also be used with Viessmann’s ViCare app which can automatically notify an engineer should a fault be detected in the system and will also provide tips on how you can save energy.

Equipped with Viessmann’s patented Inox-Radial stainless steel heat exchanger
As with all of the other boilers in the Viessmann range, one of the standout features of the Vitodens 200-W is that it is fitted with Viessmann’s patented Inox-Radial stainless steel heat exchanger. This makes the boiler extremely durable and offers a corrosion-resistant solution that competitor boilers featuring aluminium heat exchangers can’t match. This due to stainless steel being highly resistant to corrosion for many pH levels. Whilst with aluminium heat exchangers, if the proper fluids are not used to produce and maintain a narrow pH range, it can corrode much faster. and your heat exchanger will be permanently damaged – costing you more in the long run.
You can always appreciate the visual quality of the Viessmann Vitodens 200-W with its sleek and professional look, but it’s also a very quiet piece of technology. With its internal design allowing it to operate at a noise level of only 39 decibels at a maximum of 26 kW, it works at a perfectly acceptable volume, even in busier areas of the house such as the kitchen.
Highly energy efficient
Operating at up to 98% efficiency, the Viessmann Vitodens 200-W is one of the most efficient boilers currently available to purchase in the UK.
Supporting the Vitodens 200-W’s efficiency is its use of Weather Compensation technology. This works by installing a sensor positioned on a north-facing wall that picks up information on the temperature outside. When there are changes in the outside temperature, the boiler will compensate by increasing or decreasing the temperature accordingly.
Suitable for installation in multiple locations
Due to its compact dimensions, the Vitodens 200-W is suitable for wall mounting in a typical airing cupboard or a kitchen recess.
Easy to maintain
Not only this, but it is extremely easy to maintain. All components are accessible through the front, allowing regular services to be a very easy process.
No need for an LPG conversion kit
As it is equipped with a Lambda Pro Control Plus combustion controller, there is no need for an LPG conversion kit with the Vitodens 200-W. Instead, the boiler will automatically adapt to the properties of different gas types (natural gas, LPG, biogas) and will ensure consistently high energy efficiency.
