Even Higher Efficiencies
Changes Improve Vitodens Efficiencies and Literature
The Viessmann Vitodens-200 Condensing Boiler boiler reached a new maximum efficiency during a recent GAMA verification retesting. The boiler achieved an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (A.F.U.E.) of 95.2% in all sizes. This places the Vitodens 200 amongst the most efficient residential gas-fired condensing boilers on the market.
In the U.S., the new (A.F.U.E.) efficiency rating qualifies customers who purchase and install a Vitodens 200 for a personal tax credit. Under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 by the U.S. Government, consumers who purchase a replacement boiler with an (A.F.U.E.) of 95% or higher between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2007 are eligible for a federal tax credit of $150.
Vitodens 200 boilers currently marked with an (A.F.U.E.) of up to 94.2% at wholesaler locations or installed after January 1, 2006 are also eligible for the tax credit.
For more information on the tax credit program or to view the GAMA listing of tax credit eligible equipment, go to www.gamanet.org. (GAMA product listings as of January 4, 2007 have not been updated).
Heating Professionals, please inform your customers of this important update and the available tax credit.

The new Zero ODP Drop-in Replacement compatible with all lubricants
HCFC 22 is a controlled substance under the Montreal Protocol and European Regulation and will be phased out on a global basis with all other HCFCs. HCFC 22 is already banned in Europe in most new equipment and is subject to a rapidly tightening cutback schedule. It is, therefore, now time to consider the options for replacing HCFC 22 which will become restricted in availability as these cutbacks come into effect.
RS-44 provides a low cost and easy solution to replacing HCFC 22 by avoiding a costly and technically unsatisfactory retrofit situation. By definition, any replacement for HCFC 22 must have no ozone depleting ability so that, in contrast to replacing CFCs (e.g. R12, R502) where there were 'interim' blends available (largely containing HCFC 22) enabling the existing lubricant in the system to be used, this is not an option when seeking to replace HCFC 22. R424A has a zero Ozone Depletion Potential, a similar performance to HCFC 22 and can be used with all types of lubricants.
