The Shoebox: The perfect fit for housing developments

Kensa has developed the unique Shoebox heat pump to suit developments where the excellent fabric insulation and air tightness specifications mean the peak heating load is very modest.

The smaller 3kW model is ultra-small and ultra-quiet and is designed for apartments and smaller homes up to 75m2.

The larger 6kW model meets higher heat demands typically for larger apartments or medium sized homes.

Both Shoebox models deliver water at up to 65°C.

The Shoebox can be located inside the dwelling, either in the under-sink kitchen cupboard or an airing cupboard, stacked on top of the hot water cylinder.

Creation of new market opportunities

Before the launch of Kensa’s Shoebox heat pump multi-occupancy developments were unable to benefit from ground source technology due to sizing and specification issues.

New build developments were also unable to benefit for the RHI as air source in new build does not qualify for the Government scheme.

The Shoebox coupled with Kensa’s innovative micro ground source heat network design introduces a new opportunity for Developers looking to develop new build housing and multi-occupancy dwellings, providing immediate carbon and energy bill savings to purchasers and a long term return for the developer through the Non-Domestic RHI.
