Weather compensation as a 20% fuel-cost saver

With gas prices in the UK increasing rapidly, Viessmann is promoting the use of weather-compensation controls for domestic heating boilers to reduce fuel costs by up to 20%. Managing director Stuart Purchase says, ‘ Once upon a time gas was so cheap that an additional saving of up to 20% wasn’t so significant. But with gas prices going through the roof and all the other financial pressures faced by householders, it now represents a substantial proportion of household income or, indeed, savings. The only way the efficiency of a good-quality condensing boiler can be improved is with the addition of weather-compensation controls.’ Viessmann has been selling weather-compensation controls, which reduce the flow temperature as the outdoor temperature increases. This kind of control does not require a householder to touch the controls at all, a desirable feature for local-authority social-housing installations. The company is so committed to weather compensation that the forthcoming launch of the all-new Vitodens 100-W boilers will see weather compensation available on all Viessmann domestic boilers. Fitting weather-compensation control is very straightforward, with technical support and free training available if required. Attendance at a free technical training course for boilers entitles installers to a full 5-year warranty.
