Grant gains MCS accreditation

Published:  17 June, 2010

WILTSHIRE: Grant UK's latest renewable product range  – Aerona air-to-water heat pumps, have flown through MCS accreditation and now feature on the MCS Approved Register. 

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an independent scheme that certifies microgeneration products and installers against identified criteria to provide greater protection for consumers. MCS product accreditation is a necessity if the homeowner would like access to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) grants, which are due to be introduced in April 2011. It is also important to bear in mind that the Installer must also carry this endorsement. 

The air-towater units are available as five 'single phase' models, with outputs ranging from 6.5kW-15.5kW (not including the immersion back-up) and have a high coefficient of performance.

Many components are built-in, including the integration of a weather compensating device with dual temperature control. 

This arrangement allows the unit to perform more efficiently than some other heat pump designs, giving a reliable heat output, using less power, resulting in lower running costs. The design also allows for easy installation, into a new or existing S-plan type system configuration. 

All units are fitted with a 3kW electrical heat backup (there is also a factory fitted option to upgrade the electrical backup to 6kW, by special order.
