Grant UK launches the VortexAir: a unique oil and heat pump hybrid

Grant VortexAir Feb16

Leading heating specialists Grant UK are helping installers unlock the benefits of renewable energy for their off-gas customers with the new Grant VortexAir.

This unique hybrid combines the trusted attributes of a Grant VortexBlue oil boiler with the green advantage of an Aerona³ inverter driven heat pump. It means heating installers will be able to offer a green alternative to boiler replacements, with minimal disruption to the home.

Renewable technologies can sometimes prove difficult for homeowners to install into their properties, especially when in a distress purchase situation. The VortexAir solves this with a 16kW inverter driven heat pump and joining it with a high efficiency blue flame oil boiler. This hybrid is a greener alternative to boiler replacements, which helps to futureproof against unknown energy costs

“Grant’s products, including the Vortex oil-fired boilers and their renewable technologies, have been market leaders in efficiency, striving to generate greener energy with low carbon emissions,” explains Anna Wakefield, Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager for Grant UK. “The launch of the VortexAir is the latest move from Grant that epitomises how green, sustainable technologies can deliver reliable, efficient heating.”
