Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW.

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 regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard 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 temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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 46-58kW heat only boiler in my home?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only's output at 58 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW is 1,024 mm [H] by 543 mm [W] by 768 mm [D] in size.

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 46-58kW, 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 46-58kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.9% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW is "A".

Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW is one you may wish to consider.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

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 46-58kW 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 46-58kW heat only boiler has an output level of 58 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW?

The Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW stands at 1,024 mm tall, 543 mm wide and 768 mm deep.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW – non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is choosing the Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Grant Vortex Boiler House 46-58kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

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 46-58kW was rated at 91.9% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015.
