Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW is certainly one to consider.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Should I choose a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only's output at 36 kW, which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only 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 are the proportions of a Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler?

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

Floor-standing external heat only boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW are safer as the oil it uses for fuel is not stored inside your home meaning there is little to no chance of an internal leak occurring which can damage your home and leave oily odours that become difficult to eradicate.

External boilers free up space in your home and because they're outside, you rarely hear them working. In addition, a service engineer can quickly fix it if it has problems, and there is a lower chance of carbon monoxide entering your home.

Is this Grant boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only an energy-efficient 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.

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

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is rated as 94.5% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Grant VortexBlue 36kW, the ERP rating is "A".

Is this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only covered by a warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler to new customers.

Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Should I install a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler in my home?

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Grant VortexBlue 36kW have?

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

External, floor-standing heat only boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW don't require you to find space in your home for them and, because they're outside, you'll never hear them working unless you're out in the garden.

They provide much easier access for a heating engineer in case of a fault and their sturdy waterproof covering can handle the British climate as well as prevent rusting and water ingress.

Other benefits include the fact that gas will disperse into the atmosphere outdoors in the event of a carbon monoxide leak. The chances of an oil leak damaging your property are also greatly reduced because the boiler is not installed inside your property.

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

Condensing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on oil.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only considered environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

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

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 VortexBlue 36kW 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 Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has a rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler breaks down?

Grant’s VortexBlue 36kW boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
