System Architectures

Ground source heat pumps aren’t a one size fits all technology; they can be used in a variety of different configurations to suit a whole host of different requirements. Kensa can advise you on the best solution for your individual project to ensure you get the most efficient, reliable heating system.

Standard Single System

Best for single systems

The most common configuration of a ground source heat pump system is a single Kensa heat pump linked to one ground array.

If you are a homeowner working on a self build or renovation project, then this solution will save you money on your heating bills.

Eligible for the Domestic RHI

Cascaded systems

Best for commercial properties

Ground source heat pumps can be linked together in a cascaded system architecture, to satisfy high heat loads and critical applications.

This is particularly useful in commercial applications, and where properties have seasonal differences in demand for heating and hot water.

Eligible for the Non Domestic RHI

Cascaded ground source heat pump systems feature a central ground array infrastructure that is sized to deal with the entire heat demand.

This is linked to a number of large modular heat pumps, such as the Twin Compact & Plant Room Series housed in one central plant room.

Shared Ground Loop Arrays

Best for multiple properties

& multiple occupancy buildings

Kensa’s shared ground loop array system provides an effective solution for multiple properties on one site or multiple occupancy buildings, such as flats.

The ‘heat network’ is created by linking two or more properties to a communal shared ground loop array. It can also be used effectively in high rise buildings and apartment blocks.

Eligible for the Non Domestic RHI

Kensa’s unique centralised approach features a heat pump in each property with no need for a plant room. Efficiency is not compromised by heat loss in the distribution pipework, and split-billing can be avoided.
