Why District Heat Networks

The resurgence of the Heat Network principle is direct result of the recognised positive benefits that these systems bring in addition to the key aspect of supplying heat to a building. In these days of global warming the awareness of how the use of fuel directly affects our environment is a priority and important to us all. Alternative technologies have been explored and compared; it has been determined that Heat Networks make an important contribution solving the prime energy challenges that we face in the 21st Century
The areas of significant benefit are as follows:

  • To reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the use of a range of solutions.
  • To improve security of energy supply through the use of alternative fuels
  • To provide heat at a competitive price when compared to the traditional solutions

Of course all this is wonderful but what are the practical benefits that will really make the difference to the resident or end user and decide whether this is a sound solution long term. The following are some of the benefits to be seen

  • Economies of scale and ideal in urban areas
  • Convenience with “On Tap” availability
  • Reduced CO emissions per dwelling
  • Reduced end user heating costs
  • Reduced maintenance requirements with the apartments
  • Future flexibility on source energy supply
  • Closer control on heat use by end user
