A 4kW Kensa Single Compact ground source heat pump has been installed at a remote country cottage in Aberdeen. Insulation has been upgraded to reduce heat losses and new, larger radiators were installed. The antique solid fuel stove will remain for added heat in very cold weather, complimenting the Kensa heating system.
It was recommended that the ground array be a vertical borehole to overcome the limitations of ground space, primarily due to the cottage being located in a wooded valley. One 70m borehole comprising a single closed-loop ground array was thus installed. The 32mm borehole pipes are directly connected to the external one-way manifold.
A Kensa Single Compact ground source heat pump is installed in a small utility room under the worktop and next to the washing machine. Kensas heat pump, connected to radiators, operates at approximately 300% efficiency to deliver considerable energy savings when compared with the original oil boiler system.
