A renovation project in 4 minutes

Watch how the owner of a Grade II listed property transformed his energy inefficient home into a self sufficient money and energy source using a Kensa ground source heat pump, a pond, and the RHI.

Multiple properties

If you own several buildings with their own EPC on one estate, by installing a Kensa ground source heat pump in each of the buildings you may qualify for a 20 year income via the non domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) if you use a communal ground array.


Similarly, if your property is used for business and you pay business rates, you should be eligible for the non domestic RHI – click here for further advice from Ofgem.

The non domestic RHI will offer greater levels of return over a longer period of time.

I loved the service I received from Kensa; they gave me lots of information and constant support which made a major difference during the installation process. I always got intelligent answers to the questions that I asked and I believe they went above and beyond in terms of the customer service that they offered to me.

If I was to offer advice to anyone thinking of installing a ground source heat pump, I would say don’t hesitate! It’s important to get advice from as many people as possible, but definitely talk to Kensa – they are experts and know what they’re doing. I would certainly recommend them.
