Kensa Evo

British renewable heating manufacturer, Kensa Heat Pumps, has won the hearts of eco self builders and title of ‘Best Sustainable Technology or Product’ for the Kensa Evo Series at the Build It Awards.

 

Launched in Spring 2017, the Kensa Evo Series delivers 15% efficiency improvements on previous Kensa models, enabling end users to sustainably heat their home and cut energy usage and carbon emissions, whilst increasing earning potential through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI); a Government-scheme to reward renewable heating system owners with a guaranteed seven year income to off-set the initial cost compared to fossil-fuelled alternatives.

Ravenheat is preparing to add a new model to their range of domestic gas boilers, the HE98S.

After the overwhelming success of the HE98, the HE98S has the same high performance, but with the addition of a stainless steel main heat exchanger. It delivers 31kW to DHW, with a flow rate of 12 l/min at a 35-degree rise and outputs of 3.7kW to 26.4kW to central heating.

The HE98S has been designed with both installers and customers in mind. Ravenheat has listened to feedback from its installers, integrating a stainless steel heat exchanger and brass block, while ensuring the design remains lightweight, easy to install and service, and quiet in operation.

Wolseley’s Plumb Center has donated a replacement toolbox full of essential plumbing products to a young professional after he fell victim to van theft. The merchant has also pledged to continue to help out victims across the UK, as and when these incidents are reported.
