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

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system's output is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW - size in millimetres

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is 908 mm in height, 505 mm in width and 800 mm in depth.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is an external floor-standing system boiler intended for placement outside the home. In addition to providing you with more indoor space and reducing noise, this makes it easier for a service technician to access it if something goes wrong. The chance of carbon monoxide leaking into your home is also greatly reduced.

Floor-standing external boilers are housed in a weatherproof covering allowing them to be placed outside your home with only a minimal risk of rusting. Using external boilers is also safer because there will be less chance of oil leaks in your home which can cause significant internal damage and leave you with an oily odour that is hard to remove.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system 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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW scored an efficiency rating of 90.3% and a SEDBUK band rating 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 15-21kW is "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Grant Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

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

Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Grant’s Vortex Eco 15-21kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system's output at 15 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW are

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is an external, floor-standing system boiler encased in sturdy waterproof housing to protect it from the worst the British weather can throw at it as well as from water ingress and rust. Being outdoors, these boilers are much easier for an engineer to access in case they need repairing or for a maintenance check.

Being positioned outside the home means the likelihood of an oil leakage damaging your property, leaving unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours, is greatly reduced. In addition, should there be an escape of carbon monoxide, it will dissipate harmlessly outside.

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

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

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW 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 the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler good for the environment?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 90.3% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW has been given an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
