The Aerona³ R32 air source heat pump range is now suitable for installation with Homely Heat Pump Optimisation Controls.
Homely is a smart system controller which can control up to two heating zones as well as the domestic hot water. A statement said that the controller features up to two wireless temperature sensors and advanced software which uses future weather forecasting to predict the heating system needs.
Homely is also designed to work with agile tariffs (subscription required) which can provide additional cost saving benefits for the end-user, the statement added.
Designed for installation alongside the Aerona Remote Heat Pump Controller, the Homely installation kit comprises of a Hub, temperature nodes and the supporting accessories needed to secure the Hub and nodes into place.
The device can be controlled via a dedicated app which allows consumers to set their heating schedules and make adjustments to their room temperatures when away from the home. There is also a separate app for installers which allows engineers to monitor multiple heat pumps installations which are connected to Homely Hubs, providing remote access to heat pump performance data, diagnostics and system information (subscription required).
Neil Sawers, commercial technical manager at Grant UK, said: “We have been working closely with Homely and we are pleased that their popular controls offering are now compatible with our Aerona³ R32 range when installed alongside our Aerona Remote Controller.
“Not only are Homely controls suitable for installing with new Aerona³ heat pumps but they can also be retrofitted to existing Aerona³ heat pumps for homeowners wishing to further optimise their heating systems.
“Featuring one press commissioning, the compatibility of Homely controls with Grant heat pumps will be welcome news for heating engineers and their customers.”
