Add a little green energy to your home

Recent statistics highlight that approximately 68%* of households within Northern Ireland share concerns about the environment. There are many aspects of everyday life than can have an effect on your carbon footprint – from your daily commute and recycling habits, to water usage and how you heat your home.

If you aim to be more environmentally-friendly, then let us help you make a start on your home heating elements by offering an insight into just some of the options available: 

Solar solutions

Solar power is ideal for both new builds and retrofit situations and allows the homeowner to harness the free energy of the sun.  In addition to improving their carbon footprint, solar panels are also effective in cutting homeowners’ energy costs. Amongst these benefits it’s also important to remember that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source that cannot run out. Although it may seem like Northern Ireland rarely benefits from spells of good weather, we have more than enough to power our solar panels! The Grant Sahara Solar Thermal is easily combined with any conventional water heating systems and doesn’t require regular maintenance or the installation of an air vent on your roof. On average, Grant Solar can provide up to 70% of your hot water needs per year!

Air Source Heat Pumps

Alongside the increasing popularity of solar panels, great attention has been given to more recent heating solutions including air source heat pumps (ASHP). The A++ rated Aerona3 inverter driven air source heat pump provides a cost-effective renewable alternative to traditional off-gas heating methods. Available in 6kW, 10kW and 16kW, outputs the Aerona3 can provide both heating and hot water for the home and features units with greater operating efficiencies at lower temperatures.

The Best of Both Worlds

Recognising the demand from customers for environmentally friendly products which can integrate seamlessly with current heating systems, the innovative Grant Vortex Air Hybrid features a unique combination of the Vortex condensing oil boiler with the green advantages of an Aerona3 air source heat pump which is designed to maximise overall efficiency with the use of an advanced control system.

All Grant heating products are available from plumbing and heating merchants throughout Northern Ireland.
