Specification

Ground source heat pumps work well with all heating systems including radiators and underfloor, and provide hot water to 65°C, as well as offering active and passive cooling capabilities.

Heating Distribution Systems

Underfloor Heating

To get the most efficient operation from a ground source heat pump it is important that the outlet temperature is kept as low as possible, this lends itself to underfloor heating distribution systems. When used in conjunction with these, efficiencies of up to 400% can be achieved.

Radiators

Radiator systems can be used however due to the higher temperatures required the efficiency will drop to approximately 300%. Radiator systems would also need to be oversized as the maximum continuous temperature from a heat pump is generally around 50°C.

Hot Water

All Kensa ground source heat pumps feature hot water production on request, capable of delivering hot water to a comfortable 55°C.

Where there is an exceptional hot water demand, High Temperature models are available to deliver hot water to 65°C.

Passive & Active Cooling

All Kensa ground source heat pumps can be manufactured to provide active cooling for a building by operating in reverse-cycle mode; this operates much in the same way to a chiller.

Uniquely, Kensa also offers passive cooling solutions to provide ultra-low cost cooling in the summer, whilst re-charging the ground for a more energy efficient ground source heating system.

We now have a beautiful home which is comfortably warm throughout the cooler or cold months, but is able to retain its cool interior at the height of the summer. Hot water is constant and plentiful. It almost feels magical to be able to flick a shower on each morning without having to rely on gas or electric central heating boilers. The system is intuitive to use and easy to adjust seasonally if required.

Heating with Underfloor

When combining a ground source heat pump with underfloor heating efficiencies of 400% can be achieved


Heating with Radiators

Ground source heat pump systems can be used with radiators, which are typically over-sized to deliver the appropriate flow temperatures to ensure the heat pump’s efficiency.
