Grant VortexBlue 36kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Grant’s VortexBlue 36kW - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a oil system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your oil than you need to.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler has an output of 36 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW System boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Grant VortexBlue 36kW - size in millimetres

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW occupies a space of 900 mm high by 470 mm wide and 603 mm deep.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW, 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.

Grant VortexBlue 36kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue 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.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW was rated at 94.5% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW is "A".

Am I covered if my Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler breaks down?

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

Grant VortexBlue 36kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Would the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system be a suitable 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 system's output at 36 kW, which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW System boiler be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW occupies a space of 900 mm high by 470 mm wide and 603 mm deep.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly oil bills.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a condensing oil boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system good for the environment?

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

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

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

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

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

How many years' warranty does the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Grant VortexBlue 36kW are covered by a 2 year warranty.
