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

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

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.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

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

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW boiler is 908 mm high, 505 mm wide, and 800 mm deep.

External, floor-standing system boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW feature weatherproof housing - this means they can be installed outdoors to free up valuable space in your home. An external boiler also minimises indoor noise pollution and reduces the risk of carbon monoxide leaching into your property.

Oil boilers can and do leak. However, when a boiler is fitted externally, any leakage is less likely to damage your property and won't leave an unpleasant odour that is hard to remove. It is also worth remembering that an external boiler will be easier for an engineer to access if a problem develops.

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

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW 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 26-35kW system rated as environmentally friendly?

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

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

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

The energy efficiency rating of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is 90.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

How long is the warranty period on a Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

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

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

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW is a oil system boiler.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is a Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler right for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for oil than you need to.

The output of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW in millimetres

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW boiler is 908 mm high, 505 mm wide, and 800 mm deep.

Floor-standing external system boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW 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 26-35kW non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

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

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

The Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW has been awarded an efficiency rating of 90.8% 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) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

If the Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Grant Grant Vortex Eco 26-35kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.
