Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

You might want to consider the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Should I choose a Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only is 70 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW?

Grant’s Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW is 1,024 mm tall, 543 mm wide, and 768 mm deep.

Wall-hung boilers have become the preferred choice for homeowners in the UK over the last 20 years, but hundreds of thousands of homes still use bulkier floor-standing models for their central heating. It is possible to replace your floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted one if you wish so that you and your family have more living space. But we must advise you that you may also have to pay to replace some or all of your existing pipework.

You should however be able to recoup this cost in full after a few years because of the savings you make each quarter on your oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more oil.

You will save money on your oil bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler good for the environment?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

If you decide to install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "96.2%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Is a Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only's output at 70 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW measures 1,024 mm tall, 543 mm wide, and 768 mm deep.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW in the UK, although wall-hung boilers are now the obvious choice for most homeowners wanting more living space. It is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with one that is compact if you'd like to but you should consider that much of the pipework will need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Eventually, your savings on oil bills will pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW – non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.
