Siting and Maintenance
Grant Approved Installers
Grant pellet boilers must only be fitted and commissioned by a heating installer who has been fully trained and approved by Grant under the G-One Scheme. Failure to comply with this may result in the product warranty becoming invalid.
Siting the appliance and store
Wood pellet boilers are generally larger than traditional oil or gas boilers and also require a large hopper to store fuel. The Grant Spira is designed to be sited in a garage or store. Therefore before purchasing, it is important to consider where it will be located.
Ventillation should be provided to the boiler room to provide adequate air supply allowing the appliance and flue to operate efficiently. An air vent either directly to an external air source or vented into a room that has an external vent direct to an air source must be used.
It is also important to bear in mind that the boiler 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.
Boiler set up
The boiler burner comes pre-set for ‘Grant Approved’ premium wood pellets, which ensures efficient burning with maximum temperature output. To use another approved premium wood pellet, the burner settings may need to be re-set to the particular attributes of that fuel. This will ensure the appliance operates efficiently. Contact Grant for further information.
Looking after your pellet boiler
One of the best features of the Grant Spira is that it requires very little maintenance, compared with other wood pellet appliances. The unit itself has an automatic wash-clean system for the condensing system to ensure it stays free of debris. It also features a self cleaning burner and combustion chamber. Using a premium 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 3 tonnes in some instances.
Service and maintenance
As part of the installation package, your Grant Spira Wood Pellet boiler will be routinely maintained and serviced for the first two years by your G-One installer.In the unlikely event of a problem occurring, you must first contact your G-One installer to attend the fault. If it cannot be rectified, they should telephone the Grant Customer Service Department on: 01380 736920.
Grant Wood Pellet boilers are guaranteed for two years from the date of purchase (excluding consumable items), subject to being serviced annually and installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. The heat exchanger within the Grant Spira is covered by a five year guarantee.
On completion of the installation all Grant Wood Pellet Boilers must be commissioned and the online guarantee registration submitted to Grant Engineering (UK) Ltd.
