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

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Would the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only be a suitable boiler 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 - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for oil than is necessary.

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only 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.


Where will the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW fit in my house?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW measures 837 mm in height and has a width of 635 mm and a depth of 350 mm.

Wall-mounted heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW are more popular than floor-standing boilers. With floor-standing boilers, you have to find space in or near your garden to situate it whereas wall-mounted boilers are installed discreetly and often out of sight. Floor-standing boilers, depending on their size, location, and appearance, may also put off prospective buyers when you come to sell your property.

For more information on wall-mounted boilers, please get in touch with us and speak to one of our engineers.

Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW – 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 Eco 12-16kW 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.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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 heat only 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 90.5% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler if it breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler.

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

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 16 kW?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only Vortex Eco would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW is 837 mm in height, 635 mm in width and 350 mm in depth.

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler is an external boiler intended for wall mounting. Wall-mounted boilers are becoming more popular with homeowners as they don't take up space in or near your garden like free-standing boilers. As such, they could make your home more attractive to potential buyers when you come to sell.

Your PlumbProud engineer can mount the boiler for you in the position you choose and on the wall you want.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW non-condensing or 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.

How environmentally friendly is the Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW 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.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would installing a Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Grant Vortex Eco 12-16kW is rated as 90.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 Eco 12-16kW is "A".
