West Cornwall's New Harbour Destination

With concerns over global warming, and the goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050, more of us are looking for alternatives to gas boilers to lessen our impact on the planet. This is where Kensa heat pumps come in…

The popularity of heat pumps is growing in the UK, and with growing pressure on energy consumers to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that is released into the atmosphere, it is ultimately down to developers to build more eco-friendly homes and business spaces to help consumers address the problem. Corinthian has chosen Kensa heat pumps as they are a local Cornish company with a great reputation and who fit in with the ethos of our sustainable development here at North Quay.

Although heat pumps don’t generate any CO2, they do require electricity to run, which in itself causes lots of greenhouse gas emissions due to the burning of fossil fuels. The ideal scenario is for your heat pump to run completely from renewable energy, which would make your heat pump 100% CO2 neutral. This may not be entirely possible yet, but according to the European Heat Pump Association, heat pumps contribute to an annual reduction of 916 million tons of CO2 emissions in the EU. While it may not solve the whole problem; it can go a long way to being part of the solution.

Many people are still unsure about the benefits of air and ground source heat pumps, with many who have never heard of the technology. To explain how the technology works, input the URL link to view a short film (https://youtu.be/uomxq1el-kY)

Some Corinthian homeowners have queried how their heating will be billed. The Kensa heat pump works using electricity, so your electricity usage for the house/apartment as a whole is metered, and therefore there is no separate charge for your heating, it’s all rolled into one easy bill.
