Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Grant VortexBlue 36kW fit into?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of 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.

Would the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 VortexBlue 36kW heat only's output level is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW 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 VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Where will the Grant VortexBlue 36kW fit in my house?

The size of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler is 908 mm tall, 505 mm wide, and 1,005 mm deep.

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW are protected from the elements and from rusting and water ingress thanks to their solid weatherproof housings.

This type of boiler is easier for your heating engineer to access should it develop an issue or need servicing. And as it's installed outdoors, you will save valuable space in your home.

External oil boilers also have a reduced risk of indoor carbon monoxide leakage that is associated with their indoor counterparts. They also limit the potential for damage to your home or the unpleasant and difficult-to-shift odours from leaking oil.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

If you decide to install a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has been given a rating of 94.5% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has an ERP rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Grant VortexBlue 36kW breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler.

Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Grant VortexBlue 36kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a oil heat only boiler.

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.

Should I install a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

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 36kW heat only has an output of 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler measures 908 mm [H] x 505 mm [W] x 1,005 mm [D] in size.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is an external floor-standing heat only boiler which will be installed outside of your home. Other than providing you with more indoor space and reduced noise, it’s much easier for a service engineer to access it if it goes wrong and there’s also a lower risk of carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

Boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW are shielded in weatherproof housing and because the oil is outside your home, there is less chance of oil leakage, which can cause damage and odours that are hard to remove.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a condensing oil boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the oil is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual oil bills.

How energy efficient is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Will installing a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW was given an efficiency rating of 94.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has been given an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
