Top Tips

Insulation is King

Kensa can provide heat pump advice on how a heat pump works and best installation practice, including top tips for self builds and renovations. For a good ground source heat pump installation on a new build property, insulation is key.

For renovation projects in particular, the better insulated your home the more efficient it is to heat, which means smaller energy bills. Your home’s efficiency will also impact the size of the heating system you require – the lower your heat demand, the smaller and cheaper the heating system, and the less work it needs to do, which all in all means a far cheaper to run home.

Insulation is the single most important aspect of any building. It is the easiest way to reduce any buildings heating costs and as energy prices spiral, fitting good quality insulation will save energy, reduce fuel bills and reduce carbon emissions.

Reach for the stars

Selecting whether you have underfloor heating or radiators, and what floor covering you use, can all effect what the industry call your ‘system star rating’. The more efficient your selections, the higher your star rating, which ultimately means lower fuel bills. Typically well insulated homes with underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs (oversized if a renovation) return the best results. See our heat emitter guide for more details: http://www.kensaheatpumps.com/heat-emitter-guide/

Sizing it right

In in order that an accurate ground source heat pump sizing can be determined all properties, regardless of the insulation levels, will need a full MCS heat loss calculation.

This process typically costs around £150 – £200. If a heat pump is too small then the running costs will increase, too large and the heat pump could cycle on and off.

Our MCS Umbrella service includes a full MCS heat loss calculation, or if you have an MCS approved installer, they will take care of this for you.
