Take a permanent holiday from heating bills
Regardless of the British weather give your guests warm holidays all year round with free heat and hot water provided by a ground source heat pump system from the UK’s leading supplier, Kensa Heat Pumps – and the Government will pay you for it!
Whether you have an existing estate of holiday homes or are planning to expand your site, ground source heat pumps will make use of the FREE energy stored in the ground or in water sources such as lakes and rivers to significantly reduce the cost of heating your properties – especially if your options are limited to electric heating or LPG.
And thanks to a guaranteed Government scheme – the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – holiday park owners receive a generous and profitable income stream for the renewable heat their ground source heat pumps generate, so you get paid for keeping your guests warm and happy, and we keep your energy bills down!

Our most frequently asked questions
What is a Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP)?
A ground source heat pump provides heat to your home by transferring solar energy stored in the ground (or other heat sources), and upgrading this to a higher temperature to provide your home with all the heating and hot water it needs.
Ground source heat pumps are powered electrically, but because they are able to capture such a high proportion of “free” energy from the ground, they produce up to 3 or 4 times more energy than they consume, making them highly efficient compared with other forms of heating.
The heat pumps are extremely reliable and durable, requiring no annual safety inspection and little ongoing maintenance. They are also exempt from planning permission as they meet permitted development rights criteria.
What is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)?
The Government has introduced the RHI to encourage businesses and homeowners to install renewable heating systems, helping to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions.
With micro district ground source heat pumps, the Non Domestic stream of the RHI will make guaranteed quarterly payments to you every year for 20 years, helping to offset the cost of installing a renewable heating system.
What are ‘heat sources’ – and how are they used?
Heat sources are all around you; soil, rock layers, ponds, lakes – even a stream or the sea!
Heat sources absorb solar energy, like batteries, which are constantly, naturally replenished. Ground source heat pumps connect to these heat sources via ‘ground arrays’, extracting the energy to provide free heat and hot water. To extract the sources heat energy ground array pipework is buried in trenches in coils (slinkies), installed vertically (boreholes), or submerged in coils (pond mats) – and the pipework lasts 100 years! The diagram above shows these options.
Refer to the above interactive diagram to find out more about types of ground arrays.
Having a ground source heat pump is a unique selling point for the properties; lots of customers appreciate the fact that we have a sustainable heating system installed. We won our local Sustainable Tourism Awards in 2014, and obviously the ground source heat pump system played a big part in this victory.
