A 20kW Kensa Twin Compact ground source heat pump was specified an innovative eco home in East London. Land area was restricted due to the urban nature of the site, but thanks to a unique borehole drilling method used by installer Ground Sun, a Kensa ground source heat pump was successfully installed.
Jason Harris, Director of East London based architectural practice, T-Space, designed and built an ultra-modern, eco-friendly home. He wanted the 550m² house to be as self-sufficient as possible and was keen to install a renewable heating system rather than using the gas network.
He approached Kensa partner installer Ground Sun who suggested that a ground source heat pump would provide a sustainable and efficient source of heating and hot water.
Ground Sun also advised that the ground source heat pump installation would be eligible for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), earning regular quarterly payments from the Government for seven years to more than offset the cost of the initial investment.
The heat pump has been running for a year so far and the owners are very happy with how it is performing.
