Low temp heating design along with heat pumps is todays discussion at the HQ of Grant who are well known in the industry. 


Grant is essentially an off-grid company known in the heating sector for their oil boilers, heat pumps and Nathan’s favourite: Solar Heat or also known as Solar Thermal.


Nathan gets to chat with Grant’s training manager Phil, and two of his favourite engineers Paul and Steve.


You will hear the following topics:


Low Temp system design and weather compensation

Grant’s history

Transition of oil installers to low carbon technologies

Heating system monitoring

The importance of commissioning.


We will also hear Paul’s story of how he convinced a developer to use heat pumps on their property rather than gas boilers and also how he uses analogy to help explain such systems to customers.


We hear Grant explain the importance of heat loss design and radiator sizing and Steve’s conversation about architects highlights whether there needs to be more consideration at the house planning stage for such an important aspect of the home.
