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

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

You might want to consider the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

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.

Would the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 46-58kW heat only is 45 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler?

The size of the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler is 1,240 mm tall, 587 mm wide, and 945 mm deep.

4% of the British population rely on oil-powered boilers for hot water and central heating - the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW is an external, floor-standing heat only boiler which runs on oil.

For homeowners concerned about the possibility of oil leakages inside their homes, external boilers provide protection against both indoor oil damage from leakage and the unpleasant and hard-to-shift odours those leaks create. They are supplied with weatherproof housing so can function in all weathers, and they're also much easier for a service engineer to work on.

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

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your oil.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How does the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.9% with a SEDBUK 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 46-58kW, the ERP rating is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler if it breaks down?

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

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

Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

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

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler the right choice 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 46-58kW heat only's output level is 45 kW, so which types of property would this Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW's dimensions are 1,240 mm [H] x 587 mm [W] x 945 mm [D].

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW operate reliably and consistently outdoors because of their solid weatherproof housing designed to protect against rusting and water ingress. And, because they're not installed inside your property, you save valuable indoor space.

Internal oil boilers can leak and, when they do, they damage your property and leave unpleasant odours which are hard to remove. An external boiler eliminates the risk of indoor oil leaks and the danger of carbon monoxide getting into your home is also greatly reduced. An external boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access when it requires servicing or repair.

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

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.9% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler?

The Grant Vortex Pro 46-58kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.
