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

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

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 the right boiler for my house or flat?

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

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler has an output of 16 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW System boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW occupies a space of 840 mm high by 580 mm wide and 322 mm deep.

Is this Grant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

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.

Will installing a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.1% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

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 is the warranty period for the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW?

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 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

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.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

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

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

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


How large is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW is 840 mm [H] by 580 mm [W] by 322 mm [D] in size.

Is this Grant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.1% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW has an ERP rating of "A".

If the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.
