Ground source 'Shoebox' heat pump manufactured by Kensa Heat Pumps in Truro, Cornwall, in 2021.

This object is Kensa’s Shoebox heat pump – it was launched by the company in 2012 as the world’s smallest and quietest ground source heat pump. Its diminutive size revolutionised the sustainable heating of flats and apartments, so enabling a path to the decarbonisation of heat in towns and cities. This Shoebox can be combined with Kensa’s ambient shared loop array system of cables to deliver heat to those in tower blocks and multi storey residences.

Kensa Shoebox ground source heat pump

Ground source 'Shoebox' heat pump manufactured by Kensa Heat Pumps in Truro, Cornwall, in 2021.

More

Traditional domestic boilers generate heat by burning gas or oil. Instead, heat pumps use electricity to concentrate heat from the ground or air and pump it into homes. This example uses warmth trapped in the top 300 metres of the Earth’s crust. The heat is transferred to the heat pump via boreholes in the ground.

This heat pump is small enough to be used in a flat, making it suitable for people who live in cities.
