The use of a centralised heat source is more energy efficient than employing multiple boilers, in each individual dwelling, no matter how efficient they are.

Not only is the carbon footprint reduced but it also makes energy use much easier to measure with individual metering for each end user.

What is a Communal Heating System?

A communal or District heating system supplies heat to a number of dwellings from a common heat source. It may comprise of, for example, a system heating a block of apartments or a larger scale system heating many buildings.

This type of system uses significantly less energy when compared to individual gas fired boilers and with the combination of renewable energy sources, carbon emissions are greatly reduced.

Heat interface units in each apartment or home are connected to a central heat source and provide Independent, hot water and heating for each residence. This removes the requirement for individual boilers and a gas supply in each home. Providing the end user with the same autonomy as if they had their own boiler and tank, and just as with their own independent heat source they pay for only the energy they use.

Energy Meters
Within each heat interface unit, our in-built energy meters accurately monitor and record the energy used to provide heating and hot water for each dwelling in the communal heating system. This provides actual heat consumption figures for each home.
