    Are we talking about the Vitodens 200 ? 6-8-11 or 15-60? where are you located?

    We have a very small area for natural gas here, so we are stuck with oil. They are setting up for the promise of a gas pipeline (30 yrs waiting now). A few have changed over to gas but we are still 99% oil burning. A tiny neighborhood downtown on city steam. I started reading the heating forums to decide if I want to install Viessmann and Buderus. The cheapest one is the Viterond 100, available with Riello F or Beckett. Non condensing, 86.9% afue, cast iron 477lb. Identical stats to the Burnham MPO, 87% cast iron 475 lb Beckett or Riello. So what would be the advantage? The next Viessmann for +$1000 is Vitola 200. 87%, non condensing, modulating, cold start, 434 lb, with a dedicated Viessmann burner. Now that one is different than anything Burnham offers.

    Vitorond 100

    The 100 is also avail with Beckett NX and Riello. Price point is right there with Buderus and everyone elses 3-pass. I feel you can also customize the boiler better then the offering of the others. You have more choice of controls and simplification depending on the job without having to add Tekmar, plug in cards etc.

    Viessmann -

    Vitola with the Riello burner is king in the arctic for very good reason - and the Viessmann chassis burner is even better. The key to the Vitola is the chamber pressure - find that sweet spot as recommended by Viessmann and it will make you smile each time it fires.

    I agree, Paul.

    The fact that I have to find out here about new equipment from Viessmann does not sit well. I miss Mr. Nordstrom.

    Didn't they have a recall

    with that boiler? I seem to remember something about that last year. Did they take that model off the market?

    Recall

    the Vitodens boiler had a gas valve O-ring recall. Viessmann paid contractors to replace them, as required. They did not take the model off the market. http://www.viessmann-us.com/en/services/o-ring.html To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

    The 200 will be

    replaced with the new 200 that as of today has only been released to the North East. The new 100 is already in stock and I have sold a couple of them. Release date for the new 200 is 2nd week in August. If you would like more info I have the new lit and tech data manuals for both the new 100 and 200. They are both different from the current model. totally different burner and control package. The 100 has outdoor reset standard at the same price as the old 100. The new 200 has come down 25%-35%. I have pricing on both.

    West Coast Treatment

    Unfortunately, Viessmann reacts slower on the West coast. I'm dissapointed that they virtually ignore the territory, cut staff and have diminished service. It doesn't make me exactly warm and fuzzy. Then again, other manufacturers have done the same. That the company can't launch newer or upgraded products without dealers knowing what's happening is telling.

    Thought Process

    I think they made the decision in order to get rid of current inventory. They won't take any of our old stock of Vitodens 100's or 200's back and even if I sell them at cost the new 200 boilers are still about 15% cheapier. In the long run I think this move will give them better penetration into the market place. I've sold 2 of the new 100's and my customers are tickled pick over the change and the boiler is quieter then the older boiler. I haven't had a chance yet to see a 200 installed as I still can't get the 200 I ordered for a couple of more weeks. I did get to see it and they really simplified both boilers. The cabinets look just about empty. Really clean look not that overwhelming rats nest you see in alot of the condensing boilers. If you need any 200's I still have some older boilers left I'm letting go at cost.

    Vitodens tech lit and pricing

    I for one would love to have tech literature on the new Vito 100 and 200. Thank you for the offer. Does anyone have the latest MSRP price list. I have a July 09 version and it does not have the new boiler pricing included. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

    Viessmann Vitodens Boilers

    Many of you may not know but Viessmann has made a change to the Vitodens 100 and 200 boiler and it is only being release to the Northeast at the current time. For those of you in other areas of the country that sell Viessmann I have some of what you know to be the current boiler that I am looking to get rid of at a big discounted price. If your interested let me know.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I wonder if you have experience with Viessmann oil burners?
  • Chris Chris @ 8:42 PM

    I take it

    your talking about their burner? Yes. Why?

    Have the Vitoflame 100...

    ... and aside from a pump flange leak on the Suntec pump that shipped with the unit, it has been operating almost trouble-free. The turbulator was somewhat caked with soot the last time I serviced the Vitola (i.e. vac job, confirm combustion is still good, etc.), apparently due to the Garber filter not being changed at its last service appointment. This time around, it will be interesting to see if the Garber exchange stopped the post-fire dribble at the nozzle which led to coking oil on the turbulator. Like the Vitola, the Vitoflame 100 is very easy to set up and service. I have no experience with other oil burners or boilers, however. As with any boiler, I would check for local parts availability before committing to the brand. We're but an hour from Warwick, so parts have never been a problem when we needed them.

    If you don't have time to do it right, what makes you think you have time to do it over?
