Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW 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 36-46kW system's output level is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System 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.


What size is the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler?

The measurements of the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW are 900 mm by 470 mm by 603 mm.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market like the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW.

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 36-46kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Will installing a Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW scored an efficiency rating of 90% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

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 36-46kW has an ERP rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW come with?

The Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW system outputs at a maximum of 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW System boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW stands at 900 mm tall, 470 mm wide and 603 mm deep.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your oil bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW – condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the system Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler energy efficient?

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.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW system be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW was rated at 90% with 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 36-46kW is "A".

Is this Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW system covered by a warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Grant Grant Vortex Pro 36-46kW boiler.
