Kensa’s networked heat pump solution ensured that 14 new homes created by Lar Housing Trust in the Fountainbridge area of central Edinburgh have a reliable, renewable heat source.
The housing charity commissioned Kensa Contracting to install ground source heat pumps connected to a shared ground array of boreholes.
Kensa Contracting installed a mixture of compact and efficient 3kW and 6kW Kensa Shoebox heat pumps into the apartments and townhouses in cupboards and under the stairs. The heat pumps are also integrated with Sunamp heat batteries, manufactured in East Lothian. The space-saving combination of the Shoeboxes and heat batteries is perfect for the apartments, as the Sunamp batteries are 4 x smaller than traditional hot water cylinders. It also allows all the properties to take advantage of flexible tariffs by producing and storing heat when electricity is the cheapest.
