Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW - standard, combi or system?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler in my home?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system is 15 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How big is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW?

The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler is 908 mm high, 505 mm wide, and 800 mm deep.

External floor-standing system boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW don't take up space in the home (they're fitted outside) and it's almost impossible to hear them when in operation (unlike internal boilers). They're much easier for a service technician to access if something goes wrong and there's less chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

This Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler features weatherproof housing meaning a minimal risk of rusting and water ingress. In addition, as the boiler is outside your home, there is a lower chance of oil leaking into your property, which can cause damage and difficult-to-remove odours.

Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW 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 Eco 15-21kW system?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.3% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW lasts for 2 years.

Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler in my house or apartment?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system outputs at a maximum of 15 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


How large is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW stands at 908 mm tall, 505 mm wide and 800 mm deep.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler is an external, floor-standing system boiler benefiting from sturdy weatherproof housing that provides reliable protection from the UK’s changeable weather, rusting, and water ingress.

Because they're installed outdoors, you save valuable space inside your home and you'll never hear the boiler in operation. An external boiler is also much easier for a service engineer to access if it breaks down or needs repair.

External boilers cut the risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home and, because the oil it uses for power is stored outside, you greatly reduce the potential for indoor oil leakages which often cause severe damage as well as unpleasant odours that can be very hard to get rid of.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is choosing the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler 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.

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.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 15-21kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.3% and a SEDBUK grading 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 Eco 15-21kW has a rating of "A" .

If the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
