Welcome to Kensa's "Heat Pump Basics"
online learning. This course is intended for industry professionals (plumbers, heating engineers) who may not be familiar with heat pumps, and want a basic introduction to the technology itself, and where to apply it. It will also give an overview of the technology to householders, architects and specifiers.
By the end of this module you will understand what a heat pump is and be able to explain how a ground source heat pump works. You will get an understanding of why they are so efficient, and how that efficiency is measured. You'll also learn about the industry standards relating to heat pumps, and about Government subsidies available.
