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

What type of boiler is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW - regular, system or combi?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW.

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 Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW 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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 58 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only Vortex Pro would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW's dimensions are 1,240 mm [H] x 587 mm [W] x 945 mm [D].

Floor-standing, external heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW are installed outdoors and, as a result, they free up space and reduce noise in your home.

Being outdoors also eliminates the risk of oil leakages inside your property which can be extremely damaging and often result in unpleasant and lingering odours that are hard to shift. The risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home is also greatly reduced.

This comes in sturdy weatherproof housing that prevents rust and water ingress, no matter what the British climate presents. And external boilers are much easier for service engineers to access should something go wrong.

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

Am I covered if my Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW lasts for 2 years.

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

What kind of boiler is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW - standard, combi or system?

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

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Would the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler is 58 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW 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.


How large is a Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW boiler?

The size of the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW boiler is 1,240 mm high, 587 mm wide, and 945 mm deep.

An external, floor-standing heat only boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW frees up valuable space in your home and is easier for an engineer to access when it needs servicing or repair.

They benefit from solid and reliable waterproof housing which protect them from the worst of the British climate as well as from water ingress and rusting.

Internal oil boilers can leak and damage your property. An external boiler limits both the potential for damage as well as the unpleasant odours which result after a leak.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro oil Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only considered environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW scored an efficiency rating of 91.6% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW has an ERP rating of "A".

Does a Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

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