Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW - standard, combi or system?

Grant’s VortexBlue 36kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

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

Whether this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher oil bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 36 kW, so which types of property would this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW stands at 900 mm tall, 470 mm wide and 603 mm deep.

While a large number of properties in the UK still feature floor-standing boilers like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW, the more compact wall-hung models are now the preferred options for most homeowners keen for more living space for themselves and their families. It is possible to replace your floor-standing unit with a wall-hung and more compact boiler but please note that much of the pipework could need replacing, making the overall cost of installation higher.

Your new compact will save you money on your oil bills every quarter, however, and those savings should cover the costs within 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.

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

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

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

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

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

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

Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

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

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

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.

Is a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler appropriate 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.

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?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Grant VortexBlue 36kW boiler?

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW is 900 mm [H] by 470 mm [W] by 603 mm [D] in size.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Grant VortexBlue 36kW. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your oil each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

Is the Grant VortexBlue 36kW non-condensing or 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.

How does the Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only boiler rate environmentally?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Grant VortexBlue 36kW heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 91.7% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Grant VortexBlue 36kW scores "A".

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

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