Renewable heating technologies are the ideal choice for new build homes

For those considering embarking on a new build project in the new year, have you thought about your heating system?

To comply with building regulations in Ireland it is essential to introduce renewable technologies into a new build home. Renowned for its forward-thinking approach towards the research and development of innovative heating technologies, Grant continues to lead the way with its highly efficient, reliable heating for new build homes.

Barry Gorman, national renewable sales manager at Grant Engineering, outlines how the company continues to focus on sustainability to help achieve decarbonisation and advises that an air to water air source heat pump, like the Grant Aerona³ R32 air to water air source heat pump, is the recommended option for homeowners to install when building their new home.

“At Grant our core focus is to provide innovative, reliable and cost-effective heating solutions to help combat the problem of rising energy costs and carbon emissions, in the hope of securing a greener future for generations to come. Although we started developing boilers over 45 years ago, for two decades now our team has been developing highly efficient sustainable heating technologies like the A+++ Aerona³ R32 air to water air source heat pump and Grant’s supporting technologies.”

The Aerona³ has quickly become the heat pump of choice amongst those working on new build projects due to its cleaner, more environmentally friendly performance, and its ability to lower a home’s overall carbon footprint, which will ultimately help those building a new home achieve required Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standards. Delivering discreet, high-quality home heating, the Aerona³ heat pump has an ErP rating of A+++ and the heat pump range is available in outputs of 6kW, 10kW, 13kW and 17kW.


Gorman continues, “In addition to its ability to be completely renewable, the Grant Aerona³ R32 air to water air source heat pump is also extremely popular with self-builders due to its great compatibility with our range of supporting technologies. These include pre-plumbed and integrated hot water cylinders, and a range of heat emitters such as the Grant Uflex underfloor heating system and the Grant Afinia aluminium radiators. A modern and sleek heat emitter, the Grant Afinia aluminium radiator range offers a high efficiency option with excellent conductivity, whereas the Uflex underfloor heating option is our ‘invisible’ heat emitter, often used in bigger, open plan rooms. Both heat emitter choices offer great flexibility for new builds, as they are designed to work with both low and high temperature heating systems and can be easily paired with a Grant Aerona³ R32 air to water air source heat pump.

“We pride ourselves on working side by side with those building new homes to ensure the most efficient Grant heating technologies are specified for the individual home’s requirements, resulting in a fully integrated heating system that delivers cost effective, low carbon and comfortable results for the homeowner.”
