Grant UK happy to help DIY SOS: The Big Build

Grant Vortex Kitchen Utility Pro (Case View)A family struck by major health problems has been given a life-changing boost from the popular BBC One television programme DIY SOS: The Big Build presented by Nick Knowles – with a helping hand from Grant UK.

Grant UK supplied DIY SOS: The Big Build with a Pro Kitchen/ Utility boiler from its Vortex range and Grant Solar Thermal system – both crucial to heating the building and providing comfort for the Liversidge family in Rise.

The Grant Vortex condensing boiler is one of the most efficient oil-fired boilers on the market and has a built-in stainless steel heat exchanger with a unique turbulator baffle system, which allows the latent heat, normally lost to the atmosphere through the flue, to be usefully extracted. The additional energy recovered means the boiler can operate continuously at much higher efficiency levels, resulting in lower heating and hot water running costs. Annual maintenance is also made easy by Grant’s cleverly designed front service access to both the burner and all the internal serviceable parts.

Using the Grant Solar Thermal system, the Liversidges will not only reduce their oil bills but their carbon footprint too. The solar collectors should typically save up to 70% on annual hot water heating costs.

“We were very pleased to be able to work with DIY SOS: The Big Build on such a worthy project,” says Grant UK’s Marketing Manager Anna Wakefield. “Installing a Vortex Pro Kitchen/ Utility boiler and solar thermal system will really improve the family’s present situation and give them years of comfortable, affordable heating in their home.”
