An ultra-small, ultra-quiet, competitively priced ground source heat pump, the Shoebox is designed to deliver space heating and domestic hot water to apartments and smaller new build properties.
15 years of innovation and expertise compressed into the smallest GSHP
Kensa has miniaturised its award-winning technology to develop the Shoebox, the ideal appliance suited to new build properties. Whilst the reduced thermal output naturally helps reduce cabinet size, clever engineering has resulted in further reductions with minimal wasted space inside the appliance. As a consequence, the Shoebox can easily fit within any apartment. With exceptional acoustic insulation, the Shoebox has reduced sound levels to match those of a dishwasher.
Clever compressor selection has ensured the optimum blend of efficiency and high outlet temperatures. Complying with MCS efficiency standards, the Shoebox features a compressor and heat exchanger combination which is capable of providing stored water at an exceptionally high 60oC. As more cold water blending is required at the tap, smaller cylinders can be specified – another huge advantage in space-strapped smaller dwellings.
When combined with Kensa’s patent-pending communal ground array, the District-Vertical Array, the Shoebox offers even greater commercial advantage. Conventional systems typically feature an individual ground array, often installed with a borehole, for each dwelling. By linking individual Shoebox heat pumps to a communal array, designers can introduce a diversity factor which reduces overall borehole depth, and enhances the overall system integrity, by effectively safeguarding the energy source to any single ‘high demand’ property. In addition, costs are also reduced because most designs can feature a reduced number of deeper holes making the drilling task considerably more straightforward.
