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

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 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 46/58 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 58 kW?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 - size in millimetres

The Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 stands at 1,234 mm tall, 563 mm wide and 786 mm deep.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Does the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only protect the environment?

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.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only be a suitable choice?

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 was given an efficiency rating of 94.5% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

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 46/58 is "A".

Am I covered if my Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler breaks down?

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

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 boiler may be worth considering.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

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

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?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


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

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

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

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

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 boiler good for the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would installing a Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 46/58 was given an efficiency rating of 94.5% and a SEDBUK grading 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 46/58, the ERP rating is "A".

What length of warranty does the Grant Vortex Pro 46/58 come with?

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