Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

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

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

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

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler is appropriate 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 is 900 mm in height, 470 mm in width and 603 mm in depth.

There are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW throughout the UK even though compact, wall-mounted boilers have become the preferred choice for most homeowners in the last 20 years who want more space to live. It is still possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted unit if you want but please keep in mind that the pipework might need to be replaced in addition to the boiler and installation.

You will eventually recover that investment with savings on your oil bills but this will take some time.

VortexBlue 36kW – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing oil boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

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

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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 choosing to install a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Grant VortexBlue 36kW was given a 91.7% energy efficiency rating 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".

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 oil heat only boiler.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your oil than you should be.

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

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


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

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has the following dimensions - 900 mm high, 470 mm wide, and 603 mm deep.

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.

Grant VortexBlue 36kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more oil.

You will save money on your oil bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only good for the environment?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would installing a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

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 36kW are 91.7% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

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

If the Grant VortexBlue 36kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Grant Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.
