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?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler in my home?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 70 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that 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?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 58-70kW's dimensions are 1,024 mm [H] x 543 mm [W] x 768 mm [D].

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

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