Grant Vortex Pro 15 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 15 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

Grant’s Vortex Pro 15 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 15 system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 Pro 15 system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 15 System boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 15 System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Grant Vortex Pro 15?

The measurements of the Grant Vortex Pro 15 are 860 mm by 470 mm by 566 mm.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 15. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your oil each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 15 non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 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 Pro 15 system an energy-efficient 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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would installing a Grant Vortex Pro 15 system boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Pro 15 was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Grant Vortex Pro 15, the ERP rating is "A".

If the Grant Vortex Pro 15 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.

Grant Vortex Pro 15 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Pro 15 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 15 system 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 Pro 15 system's output level is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 15 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Grant Vortex Pro 15 System boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Grant Vortex Pro 15

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 has the following dimensions - 860 mm high, 470 mm wide, and 566 mm deep.

While a large number of properties in the UK still feature floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 15, the more compact wall-hung models are now the preferred options for most homeowners keen for more living space for themselves and their families. It is possible to replace your floor-standing unit with a wall-hung and more compact boiler but please note that much of the pipework could need replacing, making the overall cost of installation higher.

Your new compact will save you money on your oil bills every quarter, however, and those savings should cover the costs within a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 15 non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 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.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 15 system environmentally friendly?

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.

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 to install a Grant Vortex Pro 15 system in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 was awarded an efficiency rating of "91.7%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Grant Vortex Pro 15 has an ERP rating of "A".

Am I covered if my Grant Vortex Pro 15 system boiler breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Pro 15 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
