Grant team exhibits at 2018 Irish Building Control Institute Conference

Members of team Grant recently travelled to Co. Clare to showcase our extensive range of heating solutions at the 2018 Irish Building Control Institute Conference (IBCI). The annual Conference which took place in the Inn at Dromoland, is the main forum for business control in Ireland and provides an excellent opportunity for local authority staff, civil servants, and members of the private sector to come together to discuss important issues that are affecting the design and construction industries.
In addition to attending various presentations which provided an insight into issues and changes in building regulations and associated legislation, delegates also had the opportunity to visit the range of exhibitors present at the two-day conference.

Proving particularly popular at the Conference was our range of Vortex condensing oil boilers renowned for their high-quality finish and high efficiency outputs. Similarly, our VortexAir Hybrid, which presents a unique combination of our condensing oil technology and sustainable Aerona 3 air source heat pump (ASHP), received great interest thanks to its highly reliable operation and environmentally-friendly benefits.

We look forward to exhibiting at the Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland (SEAI) Energy Show set to take place on the 18th and 19th April at the RDS Arena in Dublin. If you would like some advice on sustainable heating solutions, then make sure to visit our team who will be on hand at stand C6.

Innovative Product of the Year Award

We received a double boost by winning the Innovative Product of the Year title alongside the Best Marketing Campaign at the recent Pluming and Heating Awards 2016.

The VortexAir boiler, which is one of the most energy-efficient boilers on the market, was named the Innovative Product of the Year in a highly competitive category, while the campaign ‘Think Boilers, Think Grant’ was named as the Best Manufacturing campaign.

Judges comments… ” The judges acknowledge GRANT’s innovation in being the first manufacturer to come to market with this product.”

The Grant VortexAir is a revolutionary new product from our in-house design team, and is a combination of the award-winning Grant Vortex condensing oil boiler with its latest in ‘blue flame’ technology, and the A++ Aerona inverter driven heat pump. This hybrid product allows the householder to benefit from the two most cost-effective forms of fuel – oil and heat pump – to ensure that they will never be without heat. The innovative design also offers the householder the best of renewable heating technology on one side and the Grant Vortex Blue Flame boiler on the other.

We developed the product after recognising that there was a gap in the market for a renewable energy heating system with the trusted attributes of the Grant Vortex condensing oil boiler to meet the growing demand from off-gas customers, and the industry call for cleaner heating solutions. Customers can purchase the new VortexAir from this summer, through all key plumbing and heating merchants.

The effective ‘Think Boilers, Think Grant’ campaign incorporated a fully integrated advertising campaign covering print, radio, television and online adverts alongside Grant’s first ever TV advert. This has all helped to further cement Grant’s place as a market leader with home-owners.
