The MCS-approved Aerona³ is Grant UK’s third generation inverter driven air to water heat pump, with an ErP rating of A++.
The Aerona³ offers three outputs, 6kW, 10kW and 16kW, and combines design features such as weather compensation controls and a base tray heating element to prevent ice formation in cold weather conditions.
It is aimed at incorporating renewable technologies into properties when space is at a premium. Grant promises easy installation and maintenance for both installers and end users and the Aerona³ comes with a 5-year guarantee (subject to T&C’s) when fitted by an approved installer.
The company says the units boast an impressive Seasonal Coefficient of Performance (SCOP) even when external temperatures drop as low as -20°C. The HPID6 model produces 6kW at a SCOP of over 4 when tested at low temperature and average climate conditions. This means, for every kilowatt (kW) of energy used to run the heat pump over 4kW of energy is being given to the heating system in return.
The output from the Aerona³ will modulate down or up depending on the climate conditions and the demand on the heating system.
When the Chapelfield Veterinary Partnership opened the Brooke Veterinary Surgery equine clinic it wanted a heating system with significantly lower running costs than its five other practices, which are all run on oil fired boilers.
The Partnership extensively researched the possible options for heating systems for the new build development near Norwich, before selecting RenEnergy to install a Vitocal ground source heat pump (GSHP) and 400 litre buffer vessel.
This would provide the high volume of hot water required during surgery hours and maintain a consistent temperature in the building for the animals and their owners throughout the year.

Standing in a modest hotel room last week in the Norwegian town of Drammen, I felt the benefit of underfloor heating and plentiful hot water. Not unusual for hotel, you might say. But, the heat in that room had originated from the nearby fjord via the town's district heating scheme through a large heat pump system designed and installed by Star Renewable Energy.
The scheme is run by 'Drammen Fjernvarme (DF)', (which directly translates to 'Drammen Distant Heat'), a company owned by Finnish energy company, Fortum and the local councils in a 50/50 split. In conjunction with the investors and a 10% government grant, DF has developed a district heating system the heat for which is provided by the heat pump, gas boilers, a biomass plant and oil burners. The new plant, which contains the heat pump and two gas boilers, cost £20 million.
