1: Lower annual fuel bills
New condensing appliances can operate at almost half the cost of a typical 25-30 year old boiler, providing instant fuel savings. Our boiler efficiency levels are exceptional, reaching as much as 97% (SAP 2005) and the Vortex has helped thousands of homes in Ireland to reduce oil consumption.
2: Easy to operate and maintain
Let’s face it no one likes complicated home appliances that require intervention and upkeep. As a company we are committed to providing homeowners with boilers that are simple, easy to use and straightforward to maintain. We regularly use feedback from installers and homeowners to ensure that the Vortex range stays top of its game.
3: Greener heating
With lower annual fuel usage comes reduced CO2 emissions, meaning a smaller carbon footprint for your home. This is especially important as it brings Europe even closer to meeting its 2020 energy reduction target. What’s more, the Vortex can be installed with renewable technologies like solar thermal which can provide further savings.
4: Quiet operation
White cased Grant Vortex models are designed to be placed in kitchens, rather than utility rooms or garages as they operate with very little noise. Thanks to the Vortex’s design and highly insulated casing, you really will be able to notice the difference when replacing your old inefficient boiler.
Launched in 2002, the Grant Vortex was one of the earliest oil-fired condensing boilers available in Ireland. Today, according to independent figures, around one in every two oil-fired boilers installed is a Grant Vortex.
What is a condensing boiler
Condensing boilers differ from traditional boilers in that they are designed to capture heat normally lost through the flue system during the combustion process. Unlike traditional oil-fired boilers the Grant Vortex condensing boiler has a built-in stainless steel heat exchanger incorporating Grant’s unique turbulator baffle system which cools the gasses to a point where the latent heat normally lost to the atmosphere through the flue can be usefully extracted. The additional energy recovered enables the boiler to operate continuously at much higher efficiency levels, resulting in lower heating and hot water running costs.
