Grant VortexBlue 26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW system's output is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 26kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler measures 860 mm [H] x 470 mm [W] x 603 mm [D] in size.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW 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 VortexBlue 26kW condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW - 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.

How energy efficient is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for 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 you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Grant VortexBlue 26kW system in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating of the Grant VortexBlue 26kW is 91.7% 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 Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW has a rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Grant VortexBlue 26kW come with?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Grant VortexBlue 26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler from the VortexBlue range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW system has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 26kW System boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Grant VortexBlue 26kW 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.


How big is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW occupies a space of 860 mm high by 470 mm wide and 603 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, most homeowners in the UK have shifted from floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW to more compact, wall-hung units to free up space. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact but you should be aware that much of the pipework might need replacing in addition to the cost of the boiler and installation.

There will be a significant one-time investment here - the savings on your oil bills will eventually pay for it but this will take a few years.

Grant VortexBlue 26kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and are better for the environment.

How does the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

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.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW has been awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is rated "A".

What is the warranty period on a Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.
