This is where a central boiler provides hot water to individual properties, then passes through a Heater Interface Unit (HIU). Heat is then pumped through for your heating or hot water. You are then billed by one energy provider, who measures how much heat you have taken from the network. You cannot change energy providers with this system. These systems still need servicing annually, as low flow can cause problems, such as lack of heating and hot water. If you need more information or help with this type of system, then please get in touch.
