  • Heat doesn’t rise...hot air rises
    Radiant heating is a technology for heating indoor and outdoor areas. Heating by radiant energy is observed every day, the warmth of the sunshine being the most commonly observed example.
  • Silent, and healthy
    With no air blowers there is no air movement, the room is silent, and there is no recirculation or collection of dust particles resulting in healthier air.
  • Uniform
    There is a gentle, even temperature throughout the room and home. Even the surface of the floor warms or cools in unison with the ceiling.
  • Responsive
    Active ceilings heat or cool much faster than a radiant floor system since it does not have to heat or cool as much mass as in an underfloor slab, nor does it need to bypass overlay flooring or rugs. Active ceilings are excellent for changeable weather which is becoming typical in the shoulder seasons.

  • Active Heating
    In winter it circulates warm water throughout pipes within the ceiling panels and radiantly warms your entire home.
  • Active Cooling
    In summer it reverses the process and circulates cool water to provide background cooling.
  • Domestic Hot Water
    All year round it generates enough hot water to meet your entire household demand.
  • Silent
  • No air movement
  • No dust circulation
  • Capable of heating, cooling and domestic hot water
  • Ultra energy efficient (up to 5:1) and compared to a gas-fired system saves
    the equivalent CO2 emissions reduced by a forest area of around 2,500m2

Grant Aerona3 heat pump

ComfortPlus Active Ceiling systems powered by Grant Aerona3 is an affordable air to water heat pump option for the single purpose of heating a medium to large home. The Grant Aerona3 harvests free energy found in the air outside the building envelope, turning it into warm water for the active ceiling system.

  • Active Heating
    In winter it circulates warm water throughout pipes within the ceiling panels, which radiantly warms your entire home.

Powered by electricity, the Grant Aerona3 heat pump is using an entirely renewable energy which helps reduce the amount of harmful greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere and in so doing, lowers the carbon footprint of the household.

  • Silent
  • No air movement
  • No dust circulation
  • Low noise level ensures quiet operation for the comfort of home owners and neighbours.
  • A high level of performance even when its -10°C outside.
  • Ultra energy efficient and compared to a gas-fired system saves the equivalent CO2 emissions reduced by a forest area of around 2,500m2.

Grant Aerona3 heat pumps can deliver over four times the amount of energy for every single unit of electricity used depending on the flow temperature and the climate conditions prevailing at the time. Homes utilising this type of heat generator will obviously have a lower dependency on fossil fuels, making them less susceptible to rising fuel costs.
