Grant embraces move to fully renewable heating technology manufacturer


Grant’s R&D and training facility.

Following the recent company announcement that the award-winning Grant Vortex boiler range is now able to run using 100% biofuel known as HVO, the manufacturer has largely transformed into a fully renewable heating company. This is reflected through its diverse product portfolio which includes, ranges of biofuel ready condensing boilers, condensing wood pellet boilers, solar thermal panels, underfloor heating, hot water cylinders, aluminium radiators, and air to water air source heat pumps.

“As a company we remain committed to helping those working on new build and upgrade projects throughout Ireland to reduce their carbon footprint and prepare homes for the future,” said Grant founder, Stephen Grant. He continued, “The Grant R&D team is dedicated to continuing its research of alternative synthetic liquid fuels and biofuels and welcomes any potential partnerships which could further the development of innovative renewable heating technologies. That may include liquid fuel, biomass, solar thermal, refrigerant, combustion, condensing and hybrid technology.”

A global leader in the heating industry, Grant is renowned for its innovative range of technologies used as the main heat source in homes, which include the biofuel compatible Grant Vortex condensing boiler and the A+++ Aerona3 R32 air-to-water air source heat pump ranges.

Air-to-water heat pumps like the Grant Aerona3 models are a perfect solution for new builds as the minimised heat loss of these homes perfectly matches this medium temperature technology. Retrofits can be more difficult because the layout, construction, and existing heating design of older buildings traditionally incorporated high temperature heating systems. For an older building to become heat pump ready it’s essential that upgrades are made to the building fabric and air tightness before the heat pump installation takes place.

Grant’s A+++ Aerona3 R32 air-to-water air source heat pump continues to be a popular choice amongst plumbers and installers throughout the UK and Ireland due to its cleaner, more environmentally friendly performance and its ability to lower a property’s overall carbon footprint. Available in four outputs, the Grant Aerona3 R32 13kW and 17kW models have also been recognised by Quiet Mark for their quiet operation.

For those upgrading a heating system, a Grant Vortex boiler provides a cost-effective option, which can also prepare the property for its changing heating needs. The Grant Vortex range is available in 63 different types with outputs from 12–70kW and has been developed in a series of models to ensure optimum installation in all ranges of properties. Vortex models include utility, external, boiler house and wall-hung.

Grant’s recent R&D breakthrough has future-proofed the full Vortex range to use HVO through making a slight modification to the boiler, such as adapting the size of the fuel injector nozzle, fuel pump pressure and blast tube. Older Grant condensing boilers can also now be adapted to HVO – this may require a new biofuel burner that is matched with the specific boiler.

Those working on new build or heating upgrade projects can now feel reassured that when they choose Grant they will have a full range of sustainable heating technologies to avail of for their heating project which include a main heat source, heat emitters, hot water storage and supporting technologies all from a name they can trust.
