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

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 a combi, system or regular 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 that 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 a Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 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 21/26 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 - size in millimetres

The Grant Vortex Eco 21/26's dimensions are 860 mm [H] x 430 mm [W] x 605 mm [D].

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 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.

Is the heat only Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler energy efficient?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 21/26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 boiler?

Grant offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26.

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

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

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

Heat only boilers, also known as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers, require a hot water/immersion cylinder and a cold-water tank to work - the immersion cylinder is usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard and the cold water tank in your attic. Your water is kept hot throughout the day by the immersion cylinder.

You can schedule your hot water and heating at set times during the day, but if you forget to set your system and there's no hot water left, you'll have to wait for the immersion cylinder to heat your water for your bath or shower.

A heat only boiler is usually a better option if you have several bathrooms in your home or yours is a large household where there may be continual demand for hot water from different family members - combi boilers are not normally a suitable choice in these situations.

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

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option 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 measurements of the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 are 860 mm by 430 mm by 605 mm.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

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

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

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.

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 21/26, the ERP rating is "A".

How many years' warranty does the Grant Vortex Eco 21/26 heat only come with?

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