Grant to launch new heat pump at Ecobuild 2013
Following the success of the standard Aerona air to water heat pump models, and in response to comments and ideas from the trade, Grant UK has developed the Aerona HE range. The brief for this was straightforward – bigger single phase outputs, higher efficiencies at lower operating temperatures and quieter noise levels, whilst maintaining the tried and tested features of the existing Aerona range.
To achieve better COP’s the Aerona HE was designed with larger evaporator surface areas, increasing the amount of air flow through the unit. The fans run at lower speeds and this coupled with the improved internal insulation has successfully decreased noise levels. The HE models also use R410a refrigerant, which allows the unit to operate at lower ambient temperatures.
As with all products in the Aerona range, the models are designed to be installer friendly and come complete with factory fitted weather compensation controls, 3kW electrical backup* and flexible flow and return connections, so there are no hidden extras. *Note: to fully comply with MIS3005, the backup heater should not be energized until the minimum design temperature has been reached (e.g. -3ºC).
The new Aerona HE is available in 6.5kW, 8.5kW, 12.5kW, 17.5kW and 21.5kW outputs, not including the immersion back up (tested to EN 14511 at 7ºC air/35ºC water).
Visit Grant UK’s stand N2950, for your opportunity to see the new Aerona HE range. The show is being held at ExCeL, London and will be open from Tuesday 5th March – Thursday 7th March 2013.
