As part of the offering, the technical specialists at Grant will ensure that all required compliance for the heating system is met to achieve NZEB standards.
Barry Gorman, Grant’s national renewable sales manager, outlined details of the service and the process involved, saying: “Our free of charge home heating design service enables those working on self-build and retrofit projects to have the property’s full heating requirements designed, specified and supplied under one roof.
“The service has received significant interest as it not only saves time on the project, but also gives peace of mind to the property owner and those working on the project, from knowing that the exact heating requirements of the property are being met.
Our technical specialists also ensure that the property is prepared for the journey to zero carbon and to deliver maximum comfort, coupled with long-term savings on heating bills.
“On assessment of new build or retrofit house plans, the initial stage of our process includes full room-by-room heat loss calculations based on SR:50 guidelines, to ensure compliance with Part L building regulations and ensure NZEB standards are met.
“This is followed by the specification of correctly sized heating technologies based on the heat load for each individual room. Our specifications include the sizing of the main heat source required for the property and the identification of appropriate supporting technologies and modern heat emitters. All heating technologies specified are from our diverse product portfolio which represents the future of heating technology.
“It is this technical insight and careful combination of heating technologies and smart controls which ensures that the heating solution is bespoke to the property, bringing it into a new class of efficiency.
“In addition to designing an innovative, smart heating system, our team will also work alongside your specifier and BER assessor to ensure from a heating perspective that requirements for energy performance coefficient (EPC), carbon performance coefficient (CPC) and building energy rating (BER) certification are met.
“Our wide range of heating technologies are all designed to work together which gives added reassurance to those working on the project. The most popular technologies featured within our multiple package solutions offering include the A+++ Aerona3 R32 air source heat pump, A-rated pre-plumbed hot water cylinders, and a range of modern heat emitters including the Uflex underfloor heating system and the Afinia aluminium and Solo fan convector radiator ranges,” Gorman concluded.
With over 40 years’ experience in the heating industry, Grant Engineering said it has developed an “enviable portfolio of innovative heating products that offer self-builders and those within the industry a one-stop solution to achieving a comfortable, sustainable and cost-effective way to heat homes”.
