Grant oil boilers comply with low NOx legislation
On 26th September this year, the next phase of the EU’s Energy-related Products Directive will come into effect. New legislation will set maximum nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission levels that space heaters will need to meet, reducing the overall NOx emissions produced from heating. For oil-fired boilers, the NOx emissions target will be a maximum of 120mg/kWh so all oil boilers placed on the market by the manufacturer on or after 26th September will need to be compliant.
One of the overarching objectives of the new legislation is to help improve the air quality by reducing pollution. In response to both Government regulations and a growing demand from homeowners, manufacturers have continuously explored ways to make their products more efficient and sustainable. The good news is that advances with burner technology coupled to Grant’s efficient boiler designs have enabled all of our Vortex and Euroflame Condensing boiler ranges to achieve these new targets with virtually no visible change to the existing line up.
Grant’s Vortex BlueMax (Blue Flame) range have already far exceeded these lower NOx emission targets from their launch in 2016 and are steadily increasing in popularity.
The Grant Vortex low NOx models include utility, outdoor modules, boiler house, combi and wall hung boilers all of which incorporate this new low NOx technology. The majority of components within the burners like fuel pumps, motors and control boxes remain the same as before, thus delivering continuity and familiarity for installers and engineers. In addition, there will be no changes to the product codes or Retail Prices which will further help deliver a seamless transition over to low NOx models.
With over forty years of pioneering R&D behind each of its products, the Grant brand has established itself a reputation for innovation, efficiency and reliability. Consequently, Grant oil boilers, such as the Vortex Pro Utility 15/26kW and VortexBlue Combi 26kW, both Which? Best Buys in 2017, are the favoured choice for many installers and homeowners. This latest product development once again demonstrates how Grant boilers meet the needs of the evolving market place well in advance of new legislation and changes.
