What is a ground source heat pump
A ground source heat pump is a renewable heating system which extracts low temperature solar energy, stored in the ground or water, using buried pipework. Compressing this energy into a higher temperature a ground source heat pump provides a building with 100% of its heating and hot water all year round.

“The money we get back from the RHI more than offsets the capital costs. If it makes economic sense then it would be lunacy not to do it!”
Alistair Mackintosh, Homeowner
“I loved the service I received from Kensa; they gave me lots of information and constant support. They went above and beyond in terms of the customer service. If I was to offer advice to anyone thinking of installing a ground source heat pump, I would say don’t hesitate, but definitely talk to Kensa – they are experts and know what they’re doing.”
