Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property is this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW measures 714 mm high and 431 mm wide by a depth of 597 mm.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW – non-condensing or condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW scored an efficiency rating of 90.7% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW, the ERP rating is "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW breaks down?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW boiler to new customers.

Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Would the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property is this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW is 714 mm [H] by 431 mm [W] by 597 mm [D] in size.

While a large number of properties in the UK still feature floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW, the more compact wall-hung models are now the preferred options for most homeowners keen for more living space for themselves and their families. It is possible to replace your floor-standing unit with a wall-hung and more compact boiler but please note that much of the pipework could need replacing, making the overall cost of installation higher.

Your new compact will save you money on your oil bills every quarter, however, and those savings should cover the costs within a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW is rated as 90.7% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW has an ERP rating of "A".

If the Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 21-26kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
