Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 fit into?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only's output level is 70 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler?

The dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 are 1,234 mm tall, 563 mm wide, and 786 mm deep.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on oil.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 was rated at 91.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 has a rating of "A".

Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 is a oil heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler from the Vortex Pro range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

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

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 size

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 measures 1,234 mm high and 563 mm wide by a depth of 786 mm.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

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

Is this Grant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is choosing the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 was given a 91.6% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".
