The only oil boiler manufacturer to achieve Which? Best Buys for three years running

The launch of our latest oil boiler campaign has been highlighted by the announcement that the Grant Vortex Pro Utility range has been awarded a Which? Best Buy 2019! This is the third year running that Grant boilers have achieved this accolade making them the only oil boiler brand to be awarded Which? Best Buy awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

As a widely recognised endorsement that reflects confidence, trust and reliability in products, the Which? Best Buy logo plays an important role in the decision-making process for homeowners researching new appliances for their home.

The results of the latest Which? Oil Boiler Survey once again acknowledged the excellent build, reliability and performance qualities that have become synonymous with Grant boilers. These qualities help homeowners achieve maximum home heating efficiencies of between 92% – 97% which in turn reduces fuel bills and makes models within the Vortex range the ideal replacements for older oil-fired boilers.

This continued recognition from Which? reinforces the excellent standards to which we develop our products and reinforces our position at the forefront of the home heating industry in both the UK and Ireland.

Grant attends SEAI Energy Show

A key date in our exhibition calendar, the SEAI Energy Show 2019 was a resounding success and brought together key professionals and manufacturers within the energy industry over two days at the RDS Arena in Dublin.

With an ever-growing focus on sustainability and clean energy solutions, exhibitors and attendees alike had a common goal of showcasing and discussing highly efficient renewable energy products and services from across Ireland and further afield.

This year, in addition to our ever-popular high efficiency range of Vortex condensing oil boilers and our Aerona3 air source heat pumps, the Grant team also displayed the new R32 13kW air source heat pump and Grant Solo and Grant Afinia radiator ranges – the most recent additions to our ever-growing portfolio of heating solutions.

With an impressive 4,000+ plus attendees at the show, members of the Grant team had a busy two days with visitors showing a particularly strong interest in the Aerona3 air source heat pump range. With an ErP rating of A++, the Aerona3 is a highly efficient heating solution which can deliver up to four times the amount of energy for every 1kW of electricity used and can also help to meet Part L compliance for new builds in the Republic of Ireland.

Speaking about the event, Barry Gorman from the Grant Technical Team said, “The SEAI Energy Show is always an important exhibition for us as we understand that the focus on sustainable practice and best energy efficient solutions continues to rise year on year.

“We had a lot of interest in our new A+++ 13kW R32 air source heat pump model which features R32 refrigerant gas that holds a significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) than other typical heat pump refrigerants. We look forward to the introduction of this R32 gas into all models within the Aerona3 heat pump range within the coming months. These models are a great option for those wishing to integrate renewable technology into a property.”

Grant introduces new model to air source heat pump range

We’re pleased to announce that we have expanded our Aerona3 air source heat pump range (ASHP) following the launch of a new 13kW model which incorporates R32 refrigerant. The Aerona3 R32 heat pump uses a more environmentally-friendly refrigerant which provides cleaner operation whilst continuing to deliver its renowned excellent performance.

Delivering an ErP rating of A+++, the Aerona3 R32 meets the growing demand for more environmentally-friendly heating products. The 2014 EU Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas (F-Gas) Regulations is legislation designed to phase out the use of hydro-fluorocarbons, with the introduction of a series of targets which are designed to limit the use of gases which have the highest Global Warming Potential (GWP). The R32 refrigerant featured in our latest 12kW model has a GWP which is considerably lower than other typical heat pump refrigerants, therefore complying with the upcoming legislative targets.

The Aerona³ R32 heat pump is not just a greener heat pump – it also has the familiar features that installers have come to associate with our Aerona3 range. The new model is a single phase, DC inverter driven ASHP incorporating in-built weather compensation and a base tray heating element to prevent ice formation, features that it shares with the existing models in the Aerona³ range. Monoblock in design, the Aerona³ R32 is suitable for use with S-Plan heating control systems and is simple to work with for installation and maintenance.

Those wishing to incorporate green technology such as an Aerona3 ASHP into a new property can also take advantage of our free of charge heat loss calculations. This service can be availed of by emailing your project plans to heatpump@grantengineering.ie.

The Aerona³ R32 model has a compact footprint and operates with low noise levels. It therefore has minimal impact on its surroundings both aesthetically and acoustically, something which is of great benefit to our customers. The heat pump is also available with a guarantee of up to 5 years (subject to full T&Cs and status). We understand the growing importance of environmentally-friendly and sustainable home heating and with the introduction of R32 gas into our heat pump offering, we are helping our customers lower their carbon footprint whilst enjoying the higher efficiency outputs and cleaner operation that our heat pumps champion. The introduction of R32 gas into our entire range of air source heat pumps is just one of many exciting developments in the pipeline over the coming months!
