Micro matters: Exploring ground source heat pumps

Micro matters: Exploring ground source heat pumps

Tackling rising fuel bills is high on the agenda for most landlords, particularly social housing providers, and especially those with properties off the gas grid or in rural areas; yet finding affordable, efficient, and long-lasting solutions can be a challenge. Chris Davis, Commercial Director at Kensa Heat Pumps, discusses how an innovative approach to community heating can provide a cost effective solution to reducing energy costs, while taking advantage of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and avoiding recently announced heat network regulations.

In a nutshell, landlords are now required to fit individual metering and control systems to each property and to provide each occupier with an individual bill, at least once per year. Obviously, this is likely to impose a hefty compliance and administration burden on many landlords with central plant communal or district heating systems, which is mandatory and may impose criminal sanctions for non-compliance.

Thankfully there is an alternative. Using Kensa’s innovative “micro district” approach, an individual Kensa Shoebox ground source heat pump is installed inside each dwelling, giving each occupier complete control over their own heating and hot water system and responsibility for their own bill. This unique system architecture inherently avoids landlords from having to comply with the Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations.
