The Grant Aerona³ air source heat pump range has been expanded with the launch of a new 12kW model which incorporates R32 refrigerant.
The Aerona³ 12kW R32 inverter driven air source heat pump is the latest model to join Grant UK’s renewable product range. As its name suggests, this heat pump uses the more environmentally friendly R32 refrigerant which makes for a cleaner heat pump while still delivering excellent performance.
The company has introduced this new heat pump is in response to the growing demand for products which have a lower impact on the environment. The 2014 EU Fluorinated Greenhouse Gas (F-Gas) Regulations is legislation designed to phase out the use of hydrofluorocarbons, 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). Grant’s latest ASHP uses R32 refrigerant which has a GWP which is considerably lower than other typical heat pump refrigerants such as R410.
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
The company has announced that additional outputs in the Aerona³ R32 range will be launched at a later date.
