Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

You may wish to consider installing the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Should I choose a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system boiler for my house or flat?

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system's output is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 - size in millimetres

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is 900 mm tall, 470 mm wide, and 603 mm deep.

Floor-standing boilers can still be found in hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK - however, many homeowners are considering switching to wall-mounted units to create new living space for themselves and their families. Our engineers can replace your current floor-standing unit with a wall-mounted model, although please be aware that we may need to charge more if your current pipework needs replacing.

Your investment will be worth it as you'll more than cover the cost with the saving you make every year on your oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 as it is a modern condensing oil boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more oil.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly oil costs and they're better for the environment.

Is choosing the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system boiler environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% 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 Pro 26/36 is "A".

If the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system suitable for my house or flat?

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 26/36 system is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System 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 Pro 26/36 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 measures 900 mm tall, 470 mm wide, and 603 mm deep.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

Vortex Pro 26/36 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the system Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler energy efficient?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would installing the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 was given an efficiency rating of 91.7% and a band rating of "A".

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 Pro 26/36 is "A".

What is the warranty period for the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36?

Grant’s Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
