Case Study 1:
CUSTOMER: Mr. B. Melville
LOCATION: Amble, Northumberland
HEATING SYSTEM: Baxi fire back boiler with cylinder
PROBLEMS: System very old and inefficient slow to heat and recover particularly domestic hot water
SOLUTION. Install Vortex.
Mr Melville reported that his system was an old Baxi fire back boiler which was noisy and very inefficient. He was considering a combi but spoke to me about the fitting of Vortex.
Mr Melville fitted Vortex and reported that the improvement to his system was apparent within minutes of turning it on.
Noise levels were greatly reduced and the pump was much quieter. Radiators heat up much faster.
After standing overnight the domestic hot water was still hot. Mr. Melville knows that the hot water heats to a higher temperature which is the reason for this.
He is confident that his gas bills will be much lower.
Case Study 2
CUSTOMER: Mr Tony Goodyear, Heating Engineer
HEATING SYSTEM: Gas Condensing Combi Boiler PROBLEMS:
- New condensing boiler fitted within the past 12 months had failed to rectify noise pump and problems with air present in the system.
- System generally very noisy.
We were approached by Mr Goodyear through his regular supply merchant in Nottingham who had reported to Mr Goodyear that we had a product that could possibly rectify his heating problems.
Having first spoken to Mr. Goodyear about the current situation with his heating system we advised the installation of the new Vortex Energy Saver unit with a little caution at first simply because the unit had never been installed on a sealed system. Although Vortex Energy Saver is designed to fit in all types of systems every other unit sold had been installed within a gravity fed system with two tanks in the loft. We therefore had little or no historical data on its performance with a sealed system.
Mr Goodyear took the unit with a promise to keep me informed of the result of the new installation.
Mr. Goodyear rang me to report that the problems the old system was manifesting had disappeared within the first 10 minutes of recommissioning the system, which was now:-
- RUNNING ALMOST TOTALLY SILENTLY.
- THE DIFFERENCE IN THE BOILER PERFORMANCE WAS SUCH THAT THE MAIN THERMOSTAT WAS TURNED BACK A FULL ¼ TURN.
- HEAT UP AND RECOVERY TIME WAS FASTER.
Mr Goodyear is exceedingly pleased with the performance of the Vortex Energy Saver unit and admitted he was very sceptical of my claims. He reports that he will have no hesitation in recommending Vortex Energy
Saver to cure the ills of heating systems, including those with condensing boilers, where he reports there can still be significant energy savings.
