Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

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 21-26kW system suitable for my house or flat?

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 21-26kW system boiler has an output level of 21 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.


What dimensions does a Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW have?

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW is 860 mm in height, 430 mm in width and 605 mm in depth.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW 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 this Grant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system boiler?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

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 21-26kW system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW has been given a rating of 91.7% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW is rated "A".

What is the length of the warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW?

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 21-26kW system's output at 21 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

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 21-26kW System boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is a Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW boiler?

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

Over the last 20 years, most homeowners in the UK have shifted from floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW to more compact, wall-hung units to free up space. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact but you should be aware that much of the pipework might need replacing in addition to the cost of the boiler and installation.

There will be a significant one-time investment here - the savings on your oil bills will eventually pay for it but this will take a few years.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system?

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.

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 you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW is rated "A".

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
