"Just Don't go there!!!"
Viessmann Vitodens 200 installed 5 years ago and had nothing but problems. Another f5 fault. It's snowing outside -1 degree, engineer can't come for 5 days and, yes, viessmann have no customer service or assistance other than "look on our website for engineers in your area you can call". For a system this expensive, it should work for longer than a few months!! Just don't go there, please. Listen to the other customer reviews and other blog sites.

"Wish I never had got one"
Can't leave the house unattended in the winter. It's been the most unreliable purchase I ever made. It's three years old and has never worked right. Despite many service calls. I want my old 1970 Utica Boiler back.

"Pricing in Canada verses US, for all boilers"
Viessmann remains defiant when hard evidence is presented on pricing. US pricing for the same products are much lower. (from on line and whole sale outlets). They come up with and cite 20 reasons why the same boiler cost much more in Canada. (bull) On line retailers and whole sellers sell for a lot less in the US. Reasons given are, you won't get all the parts, taxes are higher, you wont get service. However they state in the warranty that defective parts will be replaced at no cost (within 3 years). You will go around the block with them more than a few times on that issue. Dr. Viessmann is lengthening (has?)his private run way in Germany and since we are a small market we contribute a lot more than in a competitive market. (is a much more reasonable explanation) I like the Viessmann boilers, however the support given does not make up for it. Their is a very large premium on their boilers. Just like books and all the rest we pay, and we pay much more than us customers. We need to let them know that we know when they feed us bullshit.

"F4 and F5 for viessmann"
Aparrently these are meant to be the best boilers in the market, for us in 6 months time it broke 4 times, we rent and apparrenlt the house is 4 years old so the boiler can;t be elder than that... we had 3 times an f5 and now, today an f4, the guys that is fitting it keeps saying that these are the best boilers in the market, but this is cr*p, seriously, don't buy it; I bet a cheapest solution will be more reliable by this P.O.s

"Viessman boilers blow the rest out of the market wake up if you think different"
I ve fitted viessman 100w for the last 7 years only time i ve got and f4 is when system had a leak boiler gos to f4 for saftey resons you wouldent run your kettle without water looking at the complents you can tell there system and installer problems because I can tell you Ive fitted loads of them never replaced a part then you hear problems like replacing expansion vessel then the installer should have fitted an other one all system boilers only come with 8/10 litre vessel with will only do 6 rad systems every complent in these reviews can be explained and there far from boiler problems thats why complants are from home owers and not heating contractors.Also every boiler training day ive being on the only boiler still working is the viessman the rest you cant even change gas rates because off the poor quailty of parts the rest of the boilers do be falling apart no messing build quailty is 100% also when you commission them there always bang on no hours messing with them to get them right what else can I say dont lising to householders how went for the cheapist job and are now paying the price are moto is do it right the first time and you wont look back.

"Viessman are the best boilers on the market"
Viessman are by far the best boiler on the market. Every part them is top quality from pump to gas valves. You won't do better -- don't listen to any of the crap. I can tell from the comments that there are installer faults such as water pressure caused by leaks or bad pipe work. 1/2inch gas lines -- all condensing boilers need 3/4 gas lines to work right.

"Viessmann Vitodens 200- W awesome performance Low energy usage"
The Viessmann Vitodens 200- W is an awesome boiler, I bought it recently about 1 month ago or so. So far it has given me very good results. It is very efficient therefore wastes less fuel. I have a small property and works very well. It claims to provide ¨operational efficiency of up to 98%¨ that´s why I got that model while doing online research and after using it for about 20 days I see that that claim may be true. It heats up water instantly to whatever temperature you set it up. It is not loud and the sound is not anoying unlike many bigger boilers. It is easy to clean and has not rusted anywhere so far. It has low emissions therefore it´s a green alternative. The Viessmann Vitodens 200- W was very easy to install. It has a 3 year warranty, it´s small and easy to install and so far has not given me any problems. the only thing I don´t really like about it is that it is not available in black since it would match my laundry room better. I really trust this brand so far and hope not having to buy another boiler again and trust this one will last quite a while

"Break down after 4 years"
After 4 years, had to replace the boiler shell as it was leaking ($3,000 repair!). Veissmann rejected the warranty claim (sounds familiar?)...saying that it was caused by a leaking hydronic system (in floor radiant heating system). The hydronic system does not have a leak. I'm going to challenge this. Does anyone else have any experience fighting warranty claims?

"Viesman Boiler Buyer Beware"
In 2001 I installed an infloor radiant heat system with a Viessman 4 way mixing valve controller, veissman Vitogas 50 boiler, and domestic hot water heat exchanger package. the system was completly controled by the mixing valve control computer I took a lighting surge whitch took out the outdoor temp sensor, floor supply water temp sensor, and the mother board of the control module. 9 yaers old, no replacement parts availible for this "old techonolgy" control unit. I would never buy Viesman products again. Buyer Beware!! Their suggestion, install a complete new system including the boiler! I don't think so! I'd switch to wood first!
