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

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

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 might be a suitable option for you.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

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

Whether this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only 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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only outputs at a maximum of 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler measures 908 mm [H] x 505 mm [W] x 800 mm [D] in size.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler benefiting from sturdy weatherproof housing that provides reliable protection from the UK’s changeable weather, rusting, and water ingress.

Because they're installed outdoors, you save valuable space inside your home and you'll never hear the boiler in operation. An external boiler is also much easier for a service engineer to access if it breaks down or needs repair.

External boilers cut the risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home and, because the oil it uses for power is stored outside, you greatly reduce the potential for indoor oil leakages which often cause severe damage as well as unpleasant odours that can be very hard to get rid of.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

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

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

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

If you decide to install a Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is rated as 94.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 26/36 has an ERP 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 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 36 kW?

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 are the dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 stands at 908 mm tall, 505 mm wide and 800 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

This type of boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access should it develop an issue or need servicing. And as it's installed outdoors, you will save valuable space in your home.

External oil boilers also have a reduced risk of indoor carbon monoxide leakage that is associated with their indoor counterparts. They also limit the potential for damage to your home or the unpleasant and difficult-to-shift odours from leaking oil.

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.

How energy efficient is the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating of the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 is 94.5% 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 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 26/36, the ERP rating is "A".

Am I covered if my Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 heat only boiler breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Grant Vortex Pro 26/36 boiler.
