The world’s smallest & quietest ground source heat pump


  • The multi award-winning Kensa Shoebox Heat Pump embodies the most advanced ground source technology in the most compact of packages.
  • Comfortably installed inside the home.
  • The perfect space-saving solution for smaller properties.
  • Exceptional acoustic design and insulation for quiet operation.
  • Provides both space heating & hot water.
  • Produce temperatures up to 65°C.
  • The perfect pair for micro district heat networks with no need to split-bills as each Shoebox offers independent heat and billing.
  • Revolutionises heating specification in flats, achieving carbon reduction & SAP targets, and reducing fuel poverty.
  • Dimensions HxWxL (mm) – 530 x 475 x 370 (3kW)

Ideal for:

New build and retrofit district heat networks in flats and smaller or super-efficient houses.ErP logo v3


  • 3kW and 6kW models meet modest heat demands.
  • Produces temperatures up to 65°C.


  • High specification acoustic hoods and single vibration isolation reduce noise and vibration (47dB – 52dB).


  • Designed to be installed inside the home, typically a kitchen or airing cupboard.
  • 22mm valved connections on top of the heat pump with flexible pipes.

Power saving

  • DNO friendly low starting current as standard.
  • Two temperature set points (one for heating, one for domestic hot water) produce the required heat at the highest efficiency without the need for costly direct immersion heaters.
  • Weather compensation fitted as standard.


  • Tecumseh reciprocal compressor.
  • In-built integral ground side pump.
  • In-built sensors and probes to enable remote commissioning.  


  • 5 year warranty for the heat pump unit.
  • 2 year warranty for the controller and water pumps.
  • 2 year internals warranty.

* The COP figure quoted is calculated as per EN14511.

** In-built immersion heaters will increase running costs and CO2 emissions as they use direct electricity, because of this
Kensa heat pumps do not include them.

*** By increasing the flow temperature from the heat pump the efficiency of the unit will drop and the COP decreases.

Note: Design flow rates are for a ground temperature of 0°C and –4°C and a load temperature of 30°C and 35°C.
