Grant VortexBlue 36kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW 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 36kW System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 36 kW?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system VortexBlue would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW?

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.

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

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Grant VortexBlue oil Grant VortexBlue 36kW for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your oil bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning oil for reuse.

Is the system Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler energy efficient?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

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

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 36kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 94.5% 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.

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".

If the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

Grant VortexBlue 36kW System Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Should I install a Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler in my house or flat?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your oil bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW system is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Grant VortexBlue 36kW

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW measures 900 mm high and 470 mm wide by a depth of 603 mm.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Will choosing a Grant VortexBlue 36kW system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 36kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 94.5% 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 ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

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

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

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Grant VortexBlue 36kW System boiler covers you for 2 years.
