Kensa Partner

Southwest Renewables - proud accredited partner installer for Kensa Heat Pumps.

Why Kensa?

Cornish, market-leading, long-lasting and with over 2 decades and thousands of installations worth of experience, Kensa are the perfect company to partner with.

The name “Kensa” (KEN-zah) comes from a Cornish word meaning “first”. Kensa has lived up to its name in many ways:

  • The first and only dedicated ground source heat pump manufacturer in the UK, established in 1999.
  • The first to create a ground source heat pump small and quiet enough to be installed inside flats and apartments, the Shoebox range.
  • The first to install shared ground loop array systems with individual heat pumps inside properties, providing ultra-low-cost and low carbon communal heating to communities.
  • The first to develop a dedicated system manager unique to ground source heat pumps, Genesis.
