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

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

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler in my home?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler has an output level of 46 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

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


What size is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW is 703 mm tall, 456 mm wide, and 592 mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

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

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW 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.

Does the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only protect the environment?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 90.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

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

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

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

What type of boiler is Grant’s Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW - system, regular or combi?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 46 kW?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler

The size of the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW boiler is 703 mm high, 456 mm wide, and 592 mm deep.

Wall-hung boilers have been the most popular installation choice over the last 20 years because they're compact, discreet, and don’t take up much space. Yet there are still hundreds of thousands of UK homeowners whose central heating is provided by floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW, which they're looking to replace to free up more living space. This is possible, however please be aware that there may be an additional cost if we need to replace your existing pipework.

That said, you should be able to fully recoup your investment within a few years thanks to the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 36-46kW has an efficiency rating of 90.6% with a SEDBUK grade 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".
