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.

Heating Professionals, please inform your customers of this important update and the available tax credit.
