Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler appropriate 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 26/36 heat only's output level is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 are

The measurements of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 are 908 mm by 505 mm by 800 mm.

External floor-standing heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 offer homeowners more indoor space and, unlike their indoor counterparts, they don't create internal noise pollution.

They also provide service engineers with much easier access and are supplied with a sturdy waterproof casing to protect the boiler from rusting and water ingress.

An external boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 carries a much-reduced risk of any carbon monoxide entering your home and, because the oil is stored outdoors, there is little to no risk of internal oil leakage damaging the inside of the house and the unpleasant odours that oil leaks cause.

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

Condensing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 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 Pro 26/36 heat only environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will choosing to install a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review 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 94.5% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36, the ERP rating is "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Grant Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Grant’s Vortex Pro 26/36 - system, regular or combi?

Grant’s Vortex Pro 26/36 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler in my home?

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

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option 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 26/36?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 measures 908 mm in height by 505 mm in width by 800 mm in depth.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler encased in sturdy waterproof housing to protect it from the worst the British weather can throw at it as well as from water ingress and rust. Being outdoors, these boilers are much easier for an engineer to access in case they need repairing or for a maintenance check.

Being positioned outside the home means the likelihood of an oil leakage damaging your property, leaving unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours, is greatly reduced. In addition, should there be an escape of carbon monoxide, it will dissipate harmlessly outside.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro oil Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

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 choosing a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 was given an efficiency rating of 94.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is "A".

What length of warranty does the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 come with?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
