Wood Pellet Boiler Siting and Maintenance
Grant Approved Installers
Grant wood pellet boilers must only be fitted and commissioned by a heating installer who has been fully trained and approved by GRANT NI. Failure to comply with this may result in the product warranty becoming invalid.
Siting the appliance
Wood pellet boilers must be installed in a damp free environment. The Grant Spira is designed to be sited in a garage, store or outhouse.
To enable the boiler to operate safely and efficiently, a correctly sized and permanently open air vent (open to the outside) should be provided in the boiler room. It is also important to bear in mind that the boilers will carry out a sporadic cleaning cycle. This process will result in a temporary increase in noise level, so should also be considered when choosing a suitable location.
Storage hoppers will require vehicle access for refilling, it is important to consider this when deciding where the boiler and its accompanying hopper will be located before purchasing.

Looking after your pellet boiler
A unique feature of the Grant Condensing Wood Pellet range is that our patented technology results in the boiler requiring very little maintenance compared with other wood pellet appliances.
Our boilers have an automatic self-cleaning system for the primary and secondary heat exchangers to ensure they stay free of debris. They also feature a self-cleaning burner.
Using a GRANT NI approved EN Plus Grade 1 wood pellet with a low ash content minimises boiler maintenance, as larger amounts of pellets can be burned before the ash pan requires emptying – up to 2 tonnes in some instances.
As part of the installation package, your Grant Wood Pellet boiler will be routinely maintained and serviced for the first two years by your installer. In the unlikely event of a problem occurring, you must first contact your installer to attend the fault. If it cannot be rectified, they should telephone the Grant Customer Service Department on FREEPHONE 0800 279 4796.
