In addition to providing a highly efficient heat source for the property, Grant also specifies and supplies supporting technologies and accompanying heat emitters, under one roof, to ensure the best suited heating solution with maximum efficiencies.
Supporting technologies include Grant’s high-performance wave cylinders which have been designed to heat water quicker and more efficiently, making it a perfect partner for renewable heat sources like the Grant Aerona3 R32 air source heat pump range and the Grant Vortex condensing oil boiler range. In addition to offering indirect single and twin coil cylinders in both 200-litre and 300-litre, Grant also offers as 200-litre pre-plumbed and pre-wired cylinder that allows quick and convenient installation.
The A-rated pre-plumbed and pre-wired water cylinder comes configured for two heating zones and a domestic hot water zone, with an option to add an extra heating zone. Grant’s pre-plumbed and wired cylinders are becoming increasingly popular amongst plumbers throughout Ireland thanks to pre- configured electronic wiring that allows the installer to connect controls, pumps and motorised valves together in a simple to understand manner. The wiring centre also does all the complicated cross wiring during installation.

BENEFITS OF INSTALLING A GRANT HOT WATER CYLINDER
• 10 year guarantee (subject to T&C’s)
• 3kW immersion
• 22mm & 28mm compression fittings
• Fast recovery stainless steel corrugated coils
• Digital thermostat and pressurised kit supplied with all cylinders
Grant’s range of Wave cylinders are manufactured from duplex stainless steel and are indirect, mains water cylinders. The single and double coil cylinders are high gain, leading to faster heating times and quicker recovery. Installing a hot water cylinder is step one to maximising a property’s efficiency, however, it is vital to correctly size hot water cylinders. Too small and there will be limited water for the property – too big and energy will be wasted.
