Grant VortexBlue 26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler may be worth considering.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 26kW System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Grant VortexBlue 26kW System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant VortexBlue 26kW size

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is 860 mm in height, 470 mm in width and 603 mm in depth.

Compact wall-hung boilers have been the most popular boiler installation choice over the past two decades. If you have a floor-standing boiler in your home like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW and you want to replace it with a wall-mounted unit so that you and your family have more space to live, this is possible - however, please note that there may be an additional premium on fitting costs if your current pipework needs replacing.

The savings you make on your oil bills over the coming years will cover the cost of installation completely.

Grant VortexBlue 26kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW is a condensing oil boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your oil bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

How does the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system rate environmentally?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace 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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Grant VortexBlue 26kW system 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 VortexBlue 26kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 91.7% 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 Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "A" when testing the Grant VortexBlue 26kW.

What is the warranty period for the Grant VortexBlue 26kW?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Grant VortexBlue 26kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Grant VortexBlue 26kW fit into?

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant VortexBlue 26kW boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, which is normally situated in an airing cupboard or similar. However, unlike heat only boilers, system boilers don’t require a separate cold water tank, meaning they are a preferred option for some homeowners, especially those planning a loft conversion in the future.

They use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators and installation is often easier from scratch with heat only boilers as there’s one less component (the water tank) to purchase and fit.

System boilers also need programming for heat and hot water and don’t offer this instantly. However, the cylinder can keep water hot for use afterwards so you shouldn’t have to wait around for your bath water so long as you set your timer and have it on long enough to heat the water you’ll need for the day.

Is a Grant VortexBlue 26kW system the right boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Grant VortexBlue 26kW System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

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

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 26kW 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 is the size of the Grant VortexBlue 26kW?

The Grant VortexBlue 26kW measures 860 mm high and 470 mm wide by a depth of 603 mm.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW, 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.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 26kW are more efficient with the oil they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns oil to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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 accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Grant VortexBlue 26kW system at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Grant VortexBlue 26kW are 91.7% with a SEDBUK 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 VortexBlue 26kW has an ERP rating of "A".

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

Grant offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Grant VortexBlue 26kW.
