Unlock all the benefits of a Grant renewable heating system with G-CERT

Earlier this year, Grant UK launched a new scheme called G-CERT, which aims to support engineers who wish to offer their end-users MCS compliant installations without having to undertake MCS accreditation themselves.

Through G-CERT, Grant UK can certify renewable installations for MCS accreditation on behalf of the installer, allowing the engineer to fit RHI eligible systems for their customers without needing to be MCS accredited. Consequently, the installer spends less time doing the desk-based administration often associated with MCS, enabling them to spend more time on the road assisting their customers with their heating needs.

Under the G-CERT Scheme, Grant UK acts as the MCS accredited organisation, assisting competent installers to complete renewable installations which will be eligible for RHI payments. Prior to the installation, Grant can assist with site surveys, product selection, risk assessments and any DNO application. Once the installation is complete, a Grant in-house engineer will attend site with the installer to inspect, commission and handover the system to the consumer. From the early stages of an enquiry through to the completion of the installation, installers under G-CERT can benefit from Grant’s assistance throughout the process including heat loss calculations through to completing the necessary registrations.

The time and costs associated with becoming MCS accredited can sometimes be off-putting for installers. G-CERT offers these engineers the opportunity to access customers which they would otherwise be unable to serve, delivering MCS compliant installations to customers wishing to claim RHI without having to operate their own MCS Quality Management System.

Installers wishing to join G-CERT must meet the Scheme’s eligibility criteria which are set to ensure that the highest levels of quality workmanship and service are maintained. In turn, installers who join G-CERT will be giving their customers the added peace of mind that comes with MCS compliant installations.

G-CERT is the perfect partner to complement Grant’s award winning range of efficient renewable heating products. The Aerona³ air source heat pumps, Spira and Vecta biomass boilers, Grant solar thermal systems and VortexAir hybrids are all MCS approved, each meeting specific energy efficiency requirements. Meanwhile, the G-CERT Scheme helps engineers achieve the highest installation work set by MCS Standards.

G-CERT invites installers to build a closer working relationship with a market leading heating appliance manufacturer, allowing installers to offer a range of extensive benefits to their end-user including access to RHI payments, extended guarantees, added consumer protection, and reliable home heating from their Grant renewable product.

Grant oil boilers comply with low NOx legislation

On 26th September this year, the next phase of the EU’s Energy-related Products Directive will come into effect. New legislation will set maximum nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission levels that space heaters will need to meet, reducing the overall NOx emissions produced from heating. For oil-fired boilers, the NOx emissions targetRead More

Grant UK increases offering to installers through revamped incentive scheme

March 2018 will see Grant UK rebrand its installer scheme with the launch of a redesigned online Portal, a new product registration app, and the introduction of a loyalty points rewards programme. In 2011, Grant UK launched an installer scheme designed to assist engineers in the field. Benefits for installersRead More
