A 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.

Business or more than one property?

If you own several buildings with their own EPC on your 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 RHIclick here for further advice from Ofgem.

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.
