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

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

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 Pro 26/36 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system boiler has an output rate of 36 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable 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 size is a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 measures 900 mm high and 470 mm wide by a depth of 603 mm.

While a large number of properties in the UK still feature floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36, 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 this Grant boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more oil.

You will save money on your oil bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

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

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would choosing a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 26/36 was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

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

What kind of boiler is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 - standard, combi or system?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is a oil system boiler.

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.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system's output at 36 kW, which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 System boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 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.


Dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36's dimensions are 900 mm [H] x 470 mm [W] x 603 mm [D].

Compact wall-hung boilers have been the most popular boiler installation choice over the past two decades. If you have a floor-standing boiler in your home like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 and you want to replace it with a wall-mounted unit so that you and your family have more space to live, this is possible - however, please note that there may be an additional premium on fitting costs if your current pipework needs replacing.

The savings you make on your oil bills over the coming years will cover the cost of installation completely.

Is this Grant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system rated as 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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will installing a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 26/36 was awarded an efficiency rating of "91.7%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 has a rating of "A".

How many years' warranty does the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 system come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
