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

What type of boiler is Grant’s Vortex Eco 21-26kW - system, regular or combi?

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

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system the right boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system outputs at a maximum of 21 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would likely recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How big is the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW?

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW measures 908 mm in height and has a width of 505 mm and a depth of 800 mm.

Floor-standing external system boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW are housed in a strong weatherproof casing that protects them from rust and water ingress - they also offer much easier access for heating engineers if there is a fault or a repair is needed.

The risk of internal oil leaks and the damage and unpleasant odours they cause is also removed, as is the threat to your family's safety in the event of a carbon monoxide escape (the gas will simply disperse harmlessly into the atmosphere).

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

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on oil.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system a good choice for the environment?

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.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing a Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW has an efficiency rating of 90.3% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

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

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

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Would the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW system be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW 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 21-26kW system is 21 kW, so which types of property is this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW System boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Floor-standing external system boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW operate reliably and consistently outdoors because of their solid weatherproof housing designed to protect against rusting and water ingress. And, because they're not installed inside your property, you save valuable indoor space.

Internal oil boilers can leak and, when they do, they damage your property and leave unpleasant odours which are hard to remove. An external boiler eliminates the risk of indoor oil leaks and the danger of carbon monoxide getting into your home is also greatly reduced. An external boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access when it requires servicing or repair.

Vortex Eco 21-26kW – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Grant Vortex Eco 21-26kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

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

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.
