Purchasing a new oil boiler for your home? Here are five important questions to keep in mind!

Choosing your home heating system is an important decision for any homeowner and it is a choice that requires careful thought and consideration. Whether you are seeking to upgrade your existing oil boiler or are selecting the best model to finish off your new build, you may find yourself browsing endlessly online or visiting various merchants without a clear vision of what you are looking for. If that is the case, then let our team help by giving you an insight into some of the most commonly asked questions:

What is the installation process like?

It’s worth checking that your prospective boiler is one which offers a quick and easy install. Whether you are looking for an indoor or outdoor boiler, you will want to ensure that the installation means minimal disruption to your home. 


Will this help reduce my annual fuel bill?

The boiler’s effect on your heating bills can be a major influence on your purchase decision. If you are moving into your first home, you won’t necessarily have a previous annual fuel bill to compare to, however with a condensing oil boiler, the energy that is normally lost during the combustion process in older boilers is captured which helps to make the system more efficient and in turn makes your heating bills more efficient. With the Grant Vortex condensing oil boiler range, homeowners upgrading their older boilers can save up to 30%* on their annual heating bills.


What maintenance will this require?

Like any household appliance, your oil boiler will benefit from an annual check. By scheduling in a boiler service with a competent plumbing and heating technician you are ensuring that your boiler is running at its most efficient and saving you more money in the long run.


Is the boiler covered by a warranty?

As you ready yourself to complete your purchase, it’s always important to check on the product’s warranty to offer further peace of mind.


What size and output will I need for my house?

Selecting your oil boiler is not a one size fits all situation. Remember to keep in mind the size of your property as a bungalow will not require the same heating appliance outputs as a four-bedroom house. The Grant Vortex range is available in outputs from 12kW up to 70kW.


All Grant heating products are available from plumbing and heating merchants throughout Northern Ireland.
