What Is A Floor Standing Boiler?

A floor standing boiler is exactly that, a boiler which stands upright on a floor surface rather than being mounted mid air on a wall.

What is A Storage Combi?

A storage combi (combination) boiler functions just like a regular combi, by blending a property's central heating and hot water production into one efficient body, however they store hot water inside an integrated cylinder, rather than taking it directly from the mains.

This key component allows properties that may not have the space for a bulky external hot water cylinder, but have a high hot water demand, to store pre heated water efficiently while eating up no unnecessary space. 

The internal hot water cylinder makes a storage combi the perfect boiler type to service a home with more than one bathroom.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do Viessmann Combi Boilers Last?

Viessmann combi boilers are known for their durability and quality engineering, with a typical lifespan ranging between 15 to 20 years. This longevity can be extended with regular servicing and maintenance, ensuring the boiler operates efficiently and any potential issues are addressed promptly.

What Should a Viessmann Boiler Be Set At?

The optimal temperature setting for a Viessmann boiler for heating depends on your comfort level and energy efficiency goals. Generally, for central heating, a setting between 65°C to 75°C is recommended. For domestic hot water, the temperature is typically set at around 60°C to reduce the risk of legionella bacteria growth while providing comfortable hot water temperatures.

How Do I Fix the Pressure on My Viessmann Boiler?

To adjust the pressure in your Viessmann boiler, locate the filling loop underneath or near the boiler and open the valves to allow water to flow into the system. Watch the pressure gauge and close the valves once the pressure reaches the recommended level, usually between 1.0 and 1.5 bar. If you experience frequent drops in pressure, it might indicate a leak or an issue with the boiler that requires professional attention.

How Do You Adjust the Heating on a Viessmann Boiler?

Adjusting the heating on a Viessmann boiler can typically be done through the control panel. Look for buttons or dials marked for heating temperature or similar settings. You can increase or decrease the temperature according to your comfort needs. For more specific adjustments, refer to your boiler's manual or the digital interface if your model has one.

What Setting Should My Boiler Be On for Heating?

For efficient heating without sacrificing comfort, the general recommendation is to set your boiler's heating temperature to about 70°C. This setting ensures that your home is heated efficiently without overheating, saving energy and reducing costs.

What Number Should My Boiler Be on in Winter?

In winter, when the demand for heating is higher, you may need to adjust your boiler setting to ensure your home remains warm. A setting between 3 to 5 (on a scale where 6 is the highest) is often sufficient for most homes. This corresponds to a water temperature setting of around 65°C to 75°C, depending on your boiler's specific scale. Always adjust settings gradually and monitor your comfort and heating bills to find the optimal setting for your home.
