Next generation of home heating and cooling to be unveiled

Kensa Heat Pumps will unveil the next generation of home heating and cooling at an online launch on 29 February. Kensa will reveal its solution to help bring heat pumps to the masses, decarbonise current and future homes and create green jobs.

The launch will be presented by Kensa CEO, Tamsin Lishman, who will be joined by guest Chris Stark, Chief Executive of the Climate Change Committee.

Tamsin Lishman, CEO of Kensa Heat Pumps, says, “Mass adoption of heat pumps, including Ground Source Heat Pumps, will grow the economy, create green jobs and bring people out of fuel poverty.

“We are about to embark upon the biggest transformation in home heating since the conversion to natural gas fifty years ago. We will show how the next generation of Ground Source Heat Pumps can provide millions with long-lasting clean, energy-efficient home heating and cooling.”

Studies have shown installing more heat pumps will:

  • Increase GDP by £6.8bn by 2030
  • Avoid £2.5bn (£1,100 per home) in gas costs.
  • Networked ground source heat pumps can be almost 20% cheaper (£290/year) to install and operate than air source heat pumps (ASHP) on an annual basis

Research also shows mass heat pump adoption improves people’s health and could save the NHS £1.4bn per year:

  • 6.5 million homes are estimated to be in fuel poverty
  • 17,000 premature deaths linked to air pollution annually
  • ⅓ UK’s greenhouse gas emissions come from heat

With the Future Homes Standard set to effectively ban installations of gas boilers in newly built homes from 2025, ground-source heat pumps are expected to be an essential solution for the Government to meet its target of 600,000 heat pump installations a year by 2028 and propel the UK to net zero.
