Industry-Leading Products

Kensa Heat Pump’s iconic Shoebox Heat Pump is the preferred ground source heat pump for Kensa Contracting when installing shared ground loop arrays. Launched in 2012, it was the world’s first ground source heat pump small and quiet enough to be installed inside flats; transforming the uptake of ground source heat pumps in retrofit tower blocks to new build apartments.
