Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Grant’s Vortex Eco 12-16kW - system, regular or combi?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system suitable for my house or flat?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system's output level is 16 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler is 840 mm high, 580 mm wide, and 322 mm deep.

Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system?

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.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.1% and 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 Eco 12-16kW is "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler is 16 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.
