Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 a standard, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

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 21/26 heat only is 26 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler?

The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler is 908 mm high, 505 mm wide, and 800 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 are installed outdoors saving you valuable space inside your home as well as protecting you from the noise made by a oil boiler during its operation.

Supplied in sturdy, weatherproof housing that protects it from rusting and water ingress, external boilers are much easier for heating engineers to gain access to in case of repair or on maintenance visits.

Because the boiler is not inside your property, carbon monoxide fumes escape into the atmosphere if there is a leak. In addition, there's little to no chance of oil getting into your home if the boiler malfunctions - oil spills inside your property can cause significant damage and leave unpleasant odours that can be very hard to shift.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 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.

How does the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only rate environmentally?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 was awarded an efficiency rating of "91.7%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 is "A".

Does the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler come with a warranty?

Grant’s Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only 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 21/26 heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property is this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


Making space for the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26

The Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 stands at 908 mm tall, 505 mm wide and 800 mm deep.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 is an external floor-standing heat only 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.

Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will choosing a Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 21/26 was given an efficiency rating of 91.7% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 is "A".

What is the warranty period for the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Grant Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler.
