Kensa's MCS Umbrella Scheme is intended to help installers who are new to heat pumps or who just don't have the resources to manage their own MCS Accreditation.
In order for the owner of a heat pump to claim RHI payments, the heat pump has to be installed by an MCS Accredited installer, and the heat pump itself has to be MCS Accredited.
We know that becoming MCS Accredited, and maintaining that accreditation, can be hard work - especially if you are new to heat pumps or renewable technology in general. We also know that the sector is growing, and it's in everyone's interests to ensure that installations are done correctly, to the correct standards, without making life difficult for installers!
Perhaps you are fitting your first heat pump, or you've installed a different brand of heat pumps before. Perhaps you're thinking about becoming MCS Accredited, but you have an urgent job that needs completing before you can do it.
In that case, MCS Umbrella's for you.
As the name suggests, Kensa can cover the MCS Accreditation on an installation for you. In order to do so, we ask for certain standards to be met, for proof of your competence as an installer, and for proof that the system has been designed correctly. We'll offer you as much support as you need - our specialist technical support team includes time-served plumbers as well as heat pump technical experts, and we're on the end of a phone if you need us.
