Kildare scheme chooses Grant sustainable heating package
Grant has developed its integrated heating packages to offer people building new homes across Ireland an integrated heating solution that will increase efficiencies and significantly reduce carbon emissions.
A typical Grant integrated heating package consists of a main heat source, water storage and heat emitters, with the choice of adding smart controls to each system for added efficiency.
To ensure long-term heating efficiency, the homes in Robertstown, Naas, had bespoke integrated heating packages installed which were expertly designed by the Grant technical team. The Grant team collaborated closely with developer Cappagh Homes and heating contractor DNA Partners, with specifications by consulting engineers Waterman Moylan.
For a cleaner, more environmentally friendly home heating solution, a 6kW Grant Aerona³ R32 air-to-water heat pump was installed in each property as the main heat source, which can achieve high seasonal coefficients of performance (sCOPs), especially if operated at low temperatures. The Grant Aerona³ range has an ErP of A+++ and is amongst the most efficient air-to-water heat pumps in Ireland.
Furthermore, the Grant Aerona³ R32 air source heat pump range helps to achieve required compliance under building regulations and when partnered with a renewable electricity supplier, will generate extremely low carbon heat for homeowners.
A 210L A-rated Grant pre-plumbed cylinder – designed to heat water faster and more efficiently than standard cylinders – was chosen to supply each property with 24/7 hot water. To ensure optimum efficiency across all the homes, the Grant Uflex underfloor heating systems and Grant Afinia aluminium radiators were also installed as heat emitters, enabling individual rooms to be heated efficiently, while offering versatility to support the overall design and architecture of the homes.
Grant’s technical team works with building developers, self-builders, specifiers and engineers daily to design bespoke integrated heating systems for projects ranging from one off new builds to multi-home developments. The Grant team will design, size and specify individual heating systems free of charge, to ensure each property’s heating system performs to its optimum efficiency.
