I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you very much for the informative presentation you gave to the team yesterday.

Testimonial – Yarlington Housing Association

Mr & Mrs Coombe were one of the first residents to receive the free heating upgrade:
“Everything went so smoothly, the workmen were wonderful and we are so pleased with our new ground source heat pump and radiators.
“We were concerned with the upheaval and the new technology but after living with the system now over this cold spell we have heat and hot water when we want, the hot water temperature and pressure is lovely, and we have never run out, even after a long hot bubble bath! We would advise everyone to fit a Kensa heat pump.”
“I wish to express my thanks and gratitude in the way in which this contract was carried out, despite extreme weather conditions the work was completed in a professional manner and all staff involved deserve a firm pat on the back, the new heating system is excellent and is a great improvement….”
A further comment from Kensa Engineering’s  John Barker Brown was
“Fantastic job guys – we couldn’t even tell you’d been there!”
