Vortex boiler house and larger outdoor modules launched

With the oil-fired condensing boiler market gathering pace for the winter season, Grant UK are pleased to announce the introduction of four exciting new boiler house models and two larger outdoor modules to the Grant Vortex Pro range for 2011.

The new boiler house versions come with an externally mounted burner and thermostat, and are ideal for locations that are difficult to access like cellars or plant rooms where a white cased unit is not always the best solution.   They are available in outputs of 26-36kW, 36-46kW, 46-58kW and 58-70kW, with SAP 2009 seasonal efficiencies between 90.7% and 93.3%.  The models encompass the same unique stainless steel heat exchangers used in other Vortex boilers together with Grant’s exclusive tabulator baffle system, which provides ultra-high efficiency and low running costs.

There are also two new larger output Grant Vortex Pro Outdoor Modules now available in sizes of 46-58kW and 58-70kW with a SAP 2009 seasonal efficiency of 91.7% and 91.4% respectively.

These additions to the Vortex range are compatible with all Grant EZ-Fit Flue systems and further enhance installation options.
