Grant Solar Thermal technologies work in diffused sunlight too

Grant’s Solar Thermal technology operates from both direct and diffused sunlight and so is perfectly designed for the UK’s varied weather, achieving as much as a 70% saving in water heating costs.

Solar collectors transfer heat to the cylinder where hot water is produced. These can be installed using either an ‘on-roof’, ‘in-roof’ or ‘flat-roof’ mounting system and maintenance is kept to a minimum using self-cleaning glass.

For ease of ordering, Grant provides these products in kit form complete with all the required components. Solar controllers automate the operation of the solar thermal system making ownership easy to run and stress free. The solar pump station has been designed with the installer in mind, incorporating a High Efficiency (HE) pump, air eliminator and manual bleed screw for rapid air removal from the system.

With many new and existing heating installations involving mains pressure combination boilers, a simple, cost effective solution to integrate these two technologies is a must. Grant’s Research and Development team have also developed the CombiSOL, which enables installers to easily integrate a combination boiler and solar thermal. In short, it controls the outlet temperature of stored water produced by the solar thermal and directs the flow to either directly to the hot water outlet or via the combi-boiler.

“Our Solar Thermal products are extremely installer friendly and provide significant savings on energy bills,” explains Anna Wakefield, Marketing Manager for Grant UK.
