Four new models have been added to Grant UK’s portfolio of Aerona³ R32 heat pumps.
Following the launch of its first R32 air source heat pump last year, Grant UK has announced the launch of four new models with outputs ranging from 6kW up to 17kW.
All four of the new Aerona³ R32 inverter driven air source heat pump models will incorporate the more environmentally friendly R32 refrigerant. The range will consist of 6kW, 10kW, 13kW and 17kW models. These heat pumps are not only cleaner and more sustainable working products, they are also highly efficient achieving an A+++ energy rating at low temperatures such as 35°C or 45°C (new ErP labelling from September 2019).
The company says that development of these new models, Grant’s greenest heat pump range yet, 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 down 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 Aerona³ air source heat pumps use R32 refrigerant which, while still an HFC, has a GWP of 675 which is considerably lower than other typical heat pump refrigerants such as R410A (GWP 2088), requires less refrigerant volume per kW and offers higher efficiencies.
The latest heat pumps are all monobloc in design, single phase, DC inverter driven, have built-in weather compensation and base tray heating element. Each model is also available as a pack consisting of the R32 heat pump and its key accessories.
The heat pumps are also available with a guarantee of up to seven years (subject to full T&Cs and status).
