Grant launches R32 heat pump


12 August 2018
Grant has launched a 12 kW model of its Aerona³ air source heat pump using R32 refrigerant.

Achieving an ErP rating of A++, Grant says the Aerona³ R32 is the first monoblock R32 air source heat pump to be launched in the UK and the manufacturer's greenest yet.
In addition to having a lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) figure of 675, R32 is a single-component refrigerant which means it has no temperature glide. Grant says this means that the system can recharge and recycle with greater ease, making it more efficient.
The new model is a single phase, DC inverter driven ASHP incorporating in-built weather compensation and a base tray heating element to prevent ice formation, features that it shares with the existing models in the range. The Aerona³ R32 is suitable for use with S-Plan heating control systems and is designed to offer simple installation and maintenance.
The compact Aerona³ R32 claims low noise levels and is  available with a guarantee of up to 7 years (subject to full T&Cs and status). Additional outputs will be launched at a later date.
