Example: Commercial Building
Kensa Heat Pumps manufacture ground source heat pumps up to 75kW to suit a variety of large-scale applications.
If your commercial premises has a high demand for heating and hot water exceeding 75kW, an effective solution is to configure Kensa’s ground source heat pumps in a modular cascaded system.
Benefits of a cascaded system
The cascaded system design can flex between periods of minimum and maximum heat demand; for example during the spring and summer when the need for heat is lower, only one heat pump need be in operation, with subsequent heat pumps coming into operation as the heating season progresses.
Another benefit of the system design is that, depending on the heat pump selection, it can be configured to provide 60°C hot water at the same time without the need for an additional immersion heater.
Costed example for water source
If your business premises has access to a stream, river, pond or lake, then you should consider using this as the heat source for your installation.
Water is an excellent conductor of heat and therefore water source ground source heat pump systems are extremely energy efficient. See example costs
Costed example for slinkies
Does your company own land? Then slinkies would be a viable option for a ground source installation.
Slinkies are the name given to coiled pipe buried in trenches at a depth of 1-2m where the ground temperature remains constant all year round. See example costs
Costed example for boreholes
Boreholes would be the best option if your business is sited on an industrial park or in an urban area.
Boreholes can usually be drilled into any type of ground and are a perfect space-saving solution, as the depth of the hole(s) is varied to suit the heat requirement. See example costs
