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

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

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

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

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

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 15-21kW system boiler has an output level of 15 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system Vortex Eco would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


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

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is 860 mm tall, 430 mm wide, and 605 mm deep.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

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.

Does the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system protect the environment?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will installing a Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW was given a 92.7% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 15-21kW is "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW?

Grant’s Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

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

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW might be a suitable option for you.

This type of boiler is better for larger homes and larger families where the demand for water is likely to be higher.

System boilers use a cylinder that draws water from the mains, heats it and then keeps it warm. The cylinder stores a large amount of water, meaning that you should have hot water all day. To be certain of this, make sure that you program your boiler to draw and heat water to meet times when demand is greater, like first thing in the morning before you and your family members go to work or school, and for the evening when everyone gets home.

Unlike heat only boilers, you won't need to find room in your attic for a cold water storage tank - suitable if you don't have an attic, your attic space is very limited, or you are planning an attic conversion in the near future.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler from the Vortex Eco range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

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

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW System boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW size

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW boiler is 860 mm high, 430 mm wide, and 605 mm deep.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your oil bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 92.7% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW.

Is there a warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 15-21kW system boiler if it breaks down?

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