Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

Grant’s Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only is 46 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is 703 mm in height, 456 mm in width and 592 mm in depth.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 36-46kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 90.6% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only is 46 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW

The measurements of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW are 703 mm by 456 mm by 592 mm.

Wall-hung boilers have become the preferred choice for homeowners in the UK over the last 20 years, but hundreds of thousands of homes still use bulkier floor-standing models for their central heating. It is possible to replace your floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted one if you wish so that you and your family have more living space. But we must advise you that you may also have to pay to replace some or all of your existing pipework.

You should however be able to recoup this cost in full after a few years because of the savings you make each quarter on your oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.6% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW has a rating of "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
