Kensa Heat Pumps has added a new 17kW model to its multi award-winning Evo Series of ground source heat pumps.
The 17kW Evo is the next step in Kensa's expansion of the successful product range, which also features 7kW, 9kW and 13kW models. The 17kW Evo is the highest single phase non-inverter driven ground source heat pump currently manufactured in the UK, and is capable of heating new build properties up to 500m².
Kensa's Evo Series offers a 15% gain in efficiency compared to previous models, minimising running costs and maximising income via the Government's Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. The Evo also features Kensa's unique custom-built control panel and system manager, the first of its kind developed exclusively for use with ground source heat pumps.
Guy Cashmore, co-founder and Technical Director of Kensa Heat Pumps, comments:
"The 17kW meets the 'sweet spot' of Domestic RHI payments before the 30kWh cap. Perfect for medium to large homes, it delivers greater heat capacity alongside all the innovative design features that are the hallmark of the Evo range."
Kensa's announcement comes off the back of a successful year for the newly launched range, which was recently crowned 'Heat Pump Product of the Year' at the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards, and 'Best Sustainable Product' at the Build It Awards.
Self-builder Bob Pybus said: "During our build project, Kensa launched their Evo Series and we were confident this new piece of kit would fit perfectly with our project. We weren't disappointed."
Tom Sandell from TWS Plumbing & Heating recently fitted his first Kensa Evo: "It looks really modern and contemporary, but still has the same simple set up as all the other Kensa products."
The 17kW Evo is available to pre-order for summer 2018 delivery.
