Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

Grant’s Vortex Eco 26-35kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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 26-35kW system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 26-35kW system's output at 26 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is 900 mm in height, 470 mm in width and 603 mm in depth.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Is this Grant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

This Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is choosing the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 92.4% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW scores "A".

What length of warranty does the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

You might want to consider the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW for your house or flat if you are looking for a 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 26-35kW system boiler the right choice 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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system is 26 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

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


What size is the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW boiler?

The dimensions of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW are 900 mm tall, 470 mm wide, and 603 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Vortex Eco 26-35kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

How does the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system rate environmentally?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

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.

Is the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW was given an efficiency rating of 92.4% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is "A".

Will I be covered if the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system breaks down?

On the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
