Be perfectly in balance

Grundfos is celebrating the launch of its new ALPHA3 domestic circulator by offering HVP readers the chance to win an iPad Air 2! Enter the competition below for your chance to win

Grundfos’ new ALPHA3 domestic circulator has arrived on the UK market. Complete with useful features and robust hardware, the circulator has been designed to raise the bar for efficiency and reliability, even when used with the toughest domestic heating systems.

When combined with the ALPHA Reader, the ALPHA3 can also be used to hydronically balance the heating system quickly and easily.

The ALPHA3 uses a light sensor to read data communication from the pump and send it to a smart device.

The installer is then taken through some easy steps on the GO Balance app, downloaded to their phone, to balance the system.

This means that the complex data collection and calculations usually required to balance a system are done automatically in the GO Balance app.

Grundfos believes this is an improvement on existing market solutions, because it substantially reduces the time needed to complete the job and, therefore, the costs involved. For the homeowner, a correctly balanced domestic radiator or underfloor heating system can generate savings ranging from 7% to 17% on their heating bill.

The savings don’t end there as, with an energy efficiency index of just 0.17, the Grundfos ALPHA3 is said to be the most energy-efficient circulator in its class. It analyses the heating system’s pattern of use and automatically adjusts the power output down to as little as 3W when the demand for power is low, offering an energy saving of 87% compared to regular pumps.
