Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW fit into?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Is a Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 35 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW is 714 mm tall, 431 mm wide, and 597 mm deep in size.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW in the UK, although wall-hung boilers are now the obvious choice for most homeowners wanting more living space. It is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with one that is compact if you'd like to but you should consider that much of the pipework will need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Eventually, your savings on oil bills will pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW condensing or non-condensing?

How does the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only rate environmentally?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would installing the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 94.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "TBC".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW, the ERP rating is "A".

Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Should I choose a Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 35 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW measures 714 mm in height and has a width of 431 mm and a depth of 597 mm.

Because of their convenient and compact size, wall-hung boilers have become the popular choice for homeowners over the last 20 years. Yet while hundreds of thousands of UK properties still use floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW, many consider switching to wall-mounted units to create extra living space.

We can replace your floor-standing boiler if you wish but there may be an additional cost if we have to replace much of your existing pipework. The savings you make on your oil bills every quarter should repay that investment within a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 26-35kW was rated at 94.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "TBC".

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.
