The Viessmann Vitola 200, on the other hand, instead of using natural gas or propane, uses home heating oil. This change of fuel does little to affect the efficiency of the Viessmann Vitola boiler. Much like the Vitodens 200 (which uses gas), the Vitola 200 oil-fired boiler features condensing technology and a stainless steel Inox-Radial heat exchanger. Its use of direct heat and trapped heat from exhaust gasses scores the Vitola 200 an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating of 96.1 percent. This makes the Vitola 200 a high efficiency hot water boiler on par with any other Viessmann offering.
At 63 inches long by 31 inches wide by 38 inches tall, the Vitola 200, although not a wall-mounted boiler, still is small enough to fit snugly into any furnace closet or mud room. The Vitola is constructed of both cast iron and steel, reaping the benefits offered by both materials. The inner heat exchanger features both a grooved cast iron wall and an internal stainless steel combustion chamber. The stainless steel makes for faster energy exchange while the grooved cast iron can hold more raw heat, meaning the Vitola 200 provides both quick and ample heat. The Vitola 200 is an ideal solution for radiant floor heating systems, able to work at low boiler temperatures without compromising comfort and radiant warmth.
An outdoor reset function on the Vitola 200 monitors outdoor conditions and modulates the boiler flame to ensure it produces only the heat needed. Able to operate at temperatures as low as 80 degrees Fahrenheit, the Vitola 200 can even shut off entirely in warm weather; such operation would ruin the heat exchanger of lesser oil-fired boilers. If this flexibility and efficiency weren’t enough, the Vitola 200 is also gas compatible. Not only that, but Viessmann has planned for future innovation by making the Vitola 200 usable with conditioned biogases while still able to output 300,000 BTUs of heat an hour.
Viessmann, committed to innovation and comfort through technology, prove the words “oil-fired,” “gas-fired” and “eco-friendly” need not be mutually exclusive. By combining the best of old and new technologies, Viessmann creates the heat vital to human comfort while aiding the environment.
