Ground source heat pumps are used in a fascinating array of commercial applications, which is why Kensa combines innovative engineering application with three flexible fulfilment strategies, and offers the widest product range available of ground source heat pumps for business.
Providing a lucrative income stream via the Non Domestic RHI, Kensa ground source heat pumps not only deliver low-cost efficient heating and hot water, they also generate a healthy return on investment to businesses to invest further into their success.
Kensa ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) provide exceptional value for money and efficiencies to a range of public buildings, from fire stations, to libraries, to schools, and council depots.
Our modular commercial plant room range ensures buildings of all shapes and sizes can benefit from low-cost, sustainable, reliable heating and hot water all year round. And for premises with a high heat demand exceeding 75kW, the largest capacity capable of a single unit manufactured by Kensa Heat Pumps, an elegant solution is to link a series of Kensa ground source heat pumps in a cascaded system.
Kensa Heat Pumps provide heating solutions to schools and universities across the UK, in addition to offering industry-leading training and kit to support the expansion of ground source technology and educate potential end users and installers.
Political and environmental pressures, the supply, cost, and phase out of fossil fuels, and complex biomass compliance requirements, have cemented the role of alternative renewable heating systems in future-proofing agricultural businesses.
For many, the case is strengthened even further by the wealth of diversification opportunities ground source heat pumps can bring.
Ground source is particularly suited to agricultural businesses with readily available land or water sources for ground arrays, whilst the land can still be used for crops or grazing. Plus, ground source heat pump systems can also be easily integrated with existing renewable technologies such as hydro, Solar PV and wind turbines, allowing business owners to direct any surplus heat into new business opportunities.
If your commercial premises has a high demand for heating and hot water, then linking a number of ground source heat pumps together in a ‘cascaded system’ fed by a central ground array can effectively meet your requirements.

If you have multiple dwellings, such as barn conversions used for holiday accommodation, an elegant and lower cost solution is to install a ground source heat pump inside each unit, and link these to a communal shared ground loop array. And they don’t require planning permission either.
