    Default Recommend an external oil boiler?

    We are installing central heating and will need an external oil boiler in the 20-28kw range. Can anyone recommend a make? We are tempted by the Grant Vortex: does anyone have a view on them? Thanks for your help

    As an alternative have you looked at an air source heat pump?
    If you have to buy a tank and boiler it is a good alternative.
    If its designed and installed correctly.

    Grant boilers are easy to fit, compared with a worcester

    Thanks all...thought about an air source heat pump, but it's by the sea, and even the stainless steel rots there.

    Worcester sounds good, but I'm sure our pumber would appreciate an easier fit with the Grant.

    How does the Grant measure up, in terms of reliability? Any thoughts, anyone? Thanks.

    Hi All

    I do know grant boilers are stainless especially around condense area, were some other boilers use plated steel, if these take a knock during servicing, corrosion will start.

    Hi motsky,

    Welcome to the forum, lets start as we mean to go on, do you seriously expect us to believe you're from West Cork when you didn't mention Firebird??????????

    Sorry O.P. a joke among the Irish probably only motsky will get it.

    Grant Vortex seven days a week twice on Sunday for me, while you don't hear about it now you will later, the Grant Vortex is one of the easiest condensing oil boilers to service, that as well as one of the highest SEDBUK ratings saves you money in the future.

    Another alternative you might consider if you have the room is the Grant Spira wood pellet boiler.
