Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 fit into?

Grant’s Vortex Pro 46/58 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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 regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard 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 temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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.

Is a Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

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 46/58 heat only is 58 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler is 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 46/58 boiler?

The dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 are 1,234 mm [H] x 563 mm [W] x 786 mm [D].

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 has an efficiency rating of 94.5% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 boiler through PlumbProud.

Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 a standard, combi or system boiler?

Grant’s Vortex Pro 46/58 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Should I install a Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

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 46/58 heat only outputs at a maximum of 58 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 is 1,234 mm [H] by 563 mm [W] by 786 mm [D] in size.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 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 the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

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

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Will choosing a Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 46/58 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94.5%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
