Kensa Heat Pumps, the UK’s largest supplier and manufacturer of ground source heat pumps, has broken its record at the H&V News Awards by securing four shortlisted entries at the prestigious awards to be announced in April.
The H&V News Awards are the longest running and largest ceremony devoted to heating and ventilating services in the UK. Kensa’s winning track record at the awards includes District Heating Project of the Year and Retrofit Project of the Year in 2017, and Renewable Project of the Year and Retrofit Project of the Year in 2013. All four previous wins were a result of social housing projects featuring Kensa’s unique micro district heat networks solution.
The 2018 H&V News Awards sees Kensa shortlisted in the following categories:
- Retrofit Project of the Year. In partnership with South Shropshire Housing Association.
- District Heating Project of the Year. In partnership with Stonewater Housing.
- Renewable Project of the Year. In partnership with Northumberland County Council.
- Domestic Heating Product of the Year – HIUS, Heat Pumps and Heat Recovery. For the Kensa Evo ground source heat pump
Kensa’s 2018 shortlisted schemes feature UK wide ground source heat pump upgrades in social housing flats, bungalows and houses, fire stations, council depots, and an educational facility for the blind.
The Kensa Evo Series, launched in 2017 and shortlisted for Domestic Heating Product of the Year, offers a 15 per cent gain in efficiency compared to previous models, minimising running costs and maximising income via the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive. The Evo also features Kensa’s unique custom-built control panel and system manager, the first of its kind developed exclusively for use with ground source heat pumps. The result is a system which provides live Coefficient of Performance (COP) readings to ensure the most efficient system installation and operation.
Winners of the H&V News Awards will be announced on the 19th April 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
