The Kensa Kitchen Shoebox

There are still many questions and confusions around the subject– when are heat pumps most suitable for the heating system? How to select ground or air source. Can they generate high enough water temperatures? What are the recent technical developments?


James Standley, COO Kensa Heat Pumps

James has been a member of the IMechE since studying at Bristol and has worked at Kensa for over 15 years. During his time at Kensa James has led the manufacturing operations for the British made products, the product design teams that created the Shoebox and EVO product lines and the whole business through a period of significant growth.

Kensa, based in Cornwall, are ground source heat pump specialists established in 1999, offering an extensive range of award winning British made systems backed by experienced customer support to help with selection, heating system design and installation. They are pioneering the delivery and financing of large scale multi dwelling installations, networked heat pumps, a concept that is expected to allow heat pump installations to scale rapidly as we replace our fossil fuel heating systems.

James will cover in the presentation –

  • Heat pump capability – what they can and can’t do

  • Applications – ground source or air source, advantages and limitations

  • Sources of heat – field pipes, bore holes, ponds

  • Heat distribution systems – how to get it right and no you don’t need to change all your radiators

  • The alternatives for heat as we move away from fossil fuels.

  • Costs, timing and grants
