Get connected with heat network schemes
Heat network schemes, (also known as district heating schemes), in retrofit social housing developments provide unique access to the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), providing returns for Housing Association’s over 20 years.
Historically, heat network or district heating systems were viewed as problematic with respect to split-bill issues and varying heat demands. Kensa has identified and resolved this imperfection and pioneered the development of an efficient system architecture for ground source heat pumps through micro heat network schemes.
With heat network schemes permissable for just two or more properties (hence the ‘micro’!), and with access to ECO funding, your next retrofit scheme could be the best financial decision you make.
Kensa’s extensive product range is compatible with all heat network or district heating schemes, but the newest Shoebox Range is particularly suitable due to its small size and low noise outputs – ideal for installing inside each unit:
- Individual heating and control;
- No need for a separate plantroom;
- No need to split bills;
- No heat losses in pipework, improving the system efficiency.
Bigger heat demand?
Kensa’s Evo Series is available in 7-13kW and provides heating and hot water to 60°C.
The Evo offers a 15% gain in efficiency, minimising running costs & maximising income via the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Kensa can provide sturdy enclosures manufactured from recycled plastic to protect the units from the elements whilst providing easy access for engineers.Read more
The objective of undertaking the installation of ground source heat pump systems in our homes is to give our tenants control over their heating, reduce their energy costs and invest in modern low carbon technology to reduce our carbon footprint. Feedback from our tenants has confirmed that this has been achieved as they now have control over their heating using the system to deliver better comfort levels at a reduced cost.
