Grant Spira Wood Pellet Range now MCS approved

The Grant Spira Wood Pellet range has passed its MCS accreditation, enabling end users to access the current RHI Premium Payment and proposed heat tariff payments next year.

Wood pellet boilers are an environmentally friendly, safe and convenient way of heating the home, using wood pellets as fuel.  The Grant Spira Condensing Range utilises Grant’s award winning patented stainless steel turbulator baffle system, which gives highly efficient operation and low running costs. The units are available in outputs of 6-26kW, 9-36kW, 12-52kW, 15-62kW and 18-72kW with efficiencies up to 97.4%.  They come complete with a pellet store/hopper and feed auger, which automatically supplies the Spira with fuel.  The Grant Spira Wood Pellet Boiler range was also awarded Best Renewable Energy Product 2011 by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

MCS is an independent Government approved scheme for the certification of microgeneration products and installation companies. It is designed to assess products and installers against robust criteria, which provides greater protection for consumers when fit ting renewable technologies to their property.  It is important to remember that the end user can only claim cash-back through the RHI if the product and installer are both MCS approved.
