In addition to reduced energy bills and a guaranteed non domestic RHI income for 20 years, commercial accommodation owners will also appreciate low service, minimal maintenance and low whole life ownership costs of ground source heat pump systems.
Protected from the outdoor elements by being housed inside the property itself, Kensa’s unique Shoebox heat pump or the new Evo heat pump can be expected to provide a service life of at least 20 years, while once installed, the ground array will provide a renewable energy source for four to five times that, servicing replacement heat pumps long into the future.
Ground source heat pumps make use of standard refrigeration technology, and just like a domestic refrigerator, are fully factory sealed meaning they have no regular servicing or ongoing preventative maintenance requirements.
Unlike an LPG boiler, there is no fuel combustion, meaning heat pumps do not require an annual safety inspection and there is no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
No bulk fuel
There is no longer any need for bulk fuel purchases or fuel storage areas – the electricity needed to run the heat pumps is simply provided by each property’s electricity supply, while the rest comes free from your sites natural resources. As such, lifetime ownership costs are far lower than any other technology.
No permanent damage to the ground
Ground source heat pumps are buried in the ground or submerged in water, your guests won’t know they are there – but they will last there for 100 years!
Ground source heat pumps take just 2-3 days to be installed, and can be staggered to suit you.
No income uncertainties
The amount you make through the RHI is based on deemed heat consumption taken from the property’s Energy Performance Certificate, so if your site requires heat and hot water all year round, you can be sure of a guaranteed RHI income all year round.
The average ground source heat pump cost per holiday property is £10,000 – £13,000. You will get this back typically in just 8 – 10 years through a guaranteed 20 year non domestic RHI income for the lifetime of the heat pump.
No saving uncertainties
Ground source heat pumps operate all year round and are meticulously sized to deliver all of your heat and hot water needs, so you can be sure of the system’s performance 365 days a year.
