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

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

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

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW?

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

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler which runs on oil.

For homeowners concerned about the possibility of oil leakages inside their homes, external boilers provide protection against both indoor oil damage from leakage and the unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours those leaks create. They are supplied with weatherproof housing so can function in all weathers, and they're also much easier for a service engineer to work on.

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

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

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.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

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

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

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

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 58-70kW is "A".

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

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

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

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

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

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.

Would the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for 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?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW 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.


The size of the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW is 1,240 mm [H] by 587 mm [W] by 945 mm [D] in size.

The Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW is an external floor-standing heat only boiler which will be installed outside of your home. Other than providing you with more indoor space and reduced noise, it’s much easier for a service engineer to access it if it goes wrong and there’s also a lower risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW are shielded in weatherproof housing and because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and odours that are hard to remove.

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

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 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.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only boiler?

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.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

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

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years' warranty does the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW heat only come with?

On the Grant Vortex Pro 58-70kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
