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

What type of boiler is Grant’s Vortex Pro 58/70 - system, regular or combi?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

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

Whether this Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler is 70 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


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

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 is 1,234 mm [H] by 563 mm [W] by 786 mm [D] in size.

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

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

How does the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only rate environmentally?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing a Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 was given an efficiency rating of 91.6% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

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

How long is the warranty period on the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

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.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

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

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only is 70 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

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


What is the size of the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 has the following dimensions - 1,234 mm high, 563 mm wide, and 786 mm deep.

Wall-hung boilers have been the most popular installation choice over the last 20 years because they're compact, discreet, and don’t take up much space. Yet there are still hundreds of thousands of UK homeowners whose central heating is provided by floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70, which they're looking to replace to free up more living space. This is possible, however please be aware that there may be an additional cost if we need to replace your existing pipework.

That said, you should be able to fully recoup your investment within a few years thanks to the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills.

Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 – condensing or non-condensing?

This Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

How does the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance 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".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 is "A".

Am I covered if the Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Grant Vortex Pro 58/70 boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.
