Top tips for selecting an oil boiler for your home

Whether you are building a new home and currently selecting your heating system, or are thinking about replacing your existing oil boiler, finding the right model to suit the needs of your house and family can be tricky, especially when major factors such as efficiency, reliability and value for money are key players in the decision-making process.

Helping you find your way to the perfect boiler, Grant offers some insight into the top five commonly asked questions:

1. What is the difference between a traditional oil boiler and a condensing oil boiler?

Modern condensing oil boilers on the market today offer much higher efficiency outputs than traditional oil boilers and depending on the age and make of your old oil boiler, installing a condensing oil boiler such as the Grant Vortex, could help you save up to 25% on your annual fuel bills. This is a result of a stainless-steel heat exchanger found in Grant’s Vortex range that captures the energy normally lost in the combustion process in traditional boilers.

2. Are there any government grants available to help me upgrade my old boiler to a new one?

Those wishing to purchase a Vortex condensing oil boiler can also check if they are eligible for the boiler replacement grant, a means tested boiler replacement scheme funded by the Department for Social Development (DSD). The scheme is open to homeowners who own an inefficient boiler of at least 15 years old. Visit here for more information or call NI Direct on 03448 920900. (T&Cs apply)

3. Are there different types/sizes of oil boilers?

A great feature of oil boilers on the market today is that they offer great variety and are available in a range of designs and sizes. The Vortex range itself comprises of wall hung, external, boiler house, combi and utility models, allowing the end user to select the right model depending on the outputs needed to heat their home and the space available for installation.

4. What efficiency outputs does the oil boiler deliver?

Efficiency is a priority when it comes to selecting your heating system – in addition to helping you save money on your fuel bills, greater efficiencies can also help to reduce emissions and a homeowner’s overall carbon footprint. The Grant Vortex offers some of the highest efficiencies on the market, ranging between 92-97%.

5. Am I able to have the benefits of instant hot water with an oil boiler?
