Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 is a oil heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only's output level is 35 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 measures 900 mm in height and has a width of 470 mm and a depth of 603 mm.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Does the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only protect the environment?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Will choosing a Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 26/35 was awarded an efficiency rating of 90.3% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 has an ERP rating of "A".

Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 is certainly one to consider.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 26/35 heat only boiler is 35 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 boiler is 900 mm high, 470 mm wide, and 603 mm deep.

There are hundreds of thousands of properties whose central heating systems are powered by floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35. If you're considering switching from your current floor-standing to a new wall-mounted model to free up space inside your home for you and your family, we can do this work for you. However, when you change the type of boiler in your home, please bear in mind that we often need to replace the piping at extra cost.

However, given the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills as a result of switching, you should be able to recoup your investment in full within a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 is a condensing oil boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of 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 installing a Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 was rated at 90.3% with a SEDBUK grading 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 26/35, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

If the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?
