Heat networks are a low-carbon solution for supplying heat
and hot water to large apartment blocks. Heat is generated in a central
location (i.e. a basement plant room) and distributed to each flat through a
network of pipes.
Instead of individual boilers, each flat is fitted with a
Heat Interface Unit (HIU). The HIU transfers heat from the building’s pipe
network into your home and can be adjusted to suit personal preferences. Your
HIU is fitted with a heat meter which accurately records the amount of energy
used, to be used for billing purposes.
