Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW 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 16-21kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 21 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is a Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler measures 840 mm [H] x 580 mm [W] x 322 mm [D] in size.

Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 16-21kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 90.1% 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 ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years' warranty does the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only come with?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler to new customers.

Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Would the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler be suitable 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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler is 21 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW boiler measures 840 mm [H] x 580 mm [W] x 322 mm [D] in size.

Vortex Eco 16-21kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only good for the environment?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW was given an efficiency rating of 90.1% and a SEDBUK grading 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 16-21kW is "A".

Does the Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW heat only boiler come with a warranty?

The Grant Vortex Eco 16-21kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
