Leading heating technology manufacturer Grant has launched its brand-new EZ-Fit Flue guide for heating engineers and installers to provide instructions on the specific flues required for the Grant Vortex and Euroflame boiler ranges. The downloadable guide has been developed by the Grant technical team and provides a detailed breakdown of the wide range of flues designed for use with Grant’s Vortex and Euroflame boilers. As the flue is an important component of all boiler installations, those in the heating trade must have all the required information to ensure the correct flue is selected for the right boiler model and to install and maintain it correctly. The new EZ-Fit Flue guide contains in-depth details and instructions on low-level and high-level flue systems, part reference guides and imagery of the specific flues used on each boiler model, among other key information.
