Will the Viessmann Vitodens 050 w be suitable for my home?
This boiler is a step below the Viessmann Vitodens 100-W model but by no means do you lose any power.
In fact, you gain more in efficiency despite having virtually the same power output if you get the Viessmann vitodens 050-W 35kW version.
The smaller version Viessmann vitodens 050-w 29kW output flow rate you will obviously have a smaller scale in terms of performance.
It all depends on what your family’s needs are.
If you have a family that ranges from 4 to 6 members and a house of 3 to 4 bedrooms, then boiler engineers would recommend to go with the larger version of 35kW boiler size.
The smaller version coming in at 29kW of the Viessmann 050-W is still great but it’s more suitable for a property of 1-3 bedrooms.
Viessmann 050-W: Controls

It has an instantaneous water heater so you can use this boiler on the fly.
Use the app to change and set your presets as well as activate and dial the central heating temperature.
The 050 features an LCD display on the actual boiler which is really easy to use and control, even more the most computer illiterate.
How big is the Viessmann Vitodens 050-W?
Both the 29kW and 35kW models are extremely compact.
For the level of performance, you are getting, one should expect a medium-sized boiler which would be difficult to hide.
Not so in the boiler brand Vitodens 050-W’s case.
The measurements are 707mm in height, 400mm in width, and just 350mm in depth.
This means it’s small enough to hide in most kitchen cabinets and will be a doddle to fit into most pantries wall-mounted.
It’s wiser to have the boiler installation in your kitchen cabinet as the additional door that closes will prevent any noise the boiler makes from spreading throughout the home.
Best suited to? (2 bed home, 3 bed, 4, etc?)
It depends on what kind of household you have and what high efficiency model could better satisfy your needs.
The smaller 29kW would be great for a home that has 4 to 5 family members and who live in a 3-bedroom house.
The flow rate output of hot water for the 29kW model is 12 litres per minute.
However, if you want something with more performance, go with the 35kW model of the Vitodens 050 w.
It has an output that rivals the 100-w model, thanks to its 14 litres per minute flow rating.
The 35kW version is best for a household that has between 4 to 6 people and would be great for a 4-bedroom house.
