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

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

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

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 PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler be installed in 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 size of 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 this Grant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 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 26/35 heat only boiler 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.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only be a suitable choice?

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 26/35 has been given a rating of 90.3% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35.

Will I be covered if the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only breaks down?

Grant’s Vortex Eco 26/35 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

What type of boiler is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 - regular, system or combi?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler from the Vortex Eco range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 35 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only boiler would be suitable 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.

Wall-hung boilers have been the most popular installation choice over the last 20 years because they're compact, discreet, and don’t take up much space. Yet there are still hundreds of thousands of UK homeowners whose central heating is provided by floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35, which they're looking to replace to free up more living space. This is possible, however please be aware that there may be an additional cost if we need to replace your existing pipework.

That said, you should be able to fully recoup your investment within a few years thanks to the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills.

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

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 heat only?

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.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 90.3% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Grant Vortex Eco 26/35.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26/35 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
