What are the benefits of community heating?

  • Connected properties enjoy a secure and reliable heat supply, with virtually unlimited hot water.
  • Not having a gas boiler in your home is safer and saves space. We take charge of maintain your HIU (the boiler’s replacement), so it means less maintenance for you.
  • Energetik’s price changes will be clear and only be once per year. No random price hikes at any time of the year, and no premium for low carbon heating.
  • Using a highly efficient energy centre to heat lots of properties is better for the environment than individual gas boilers. Homes that connect could reduce their carbon footprint for heating by up to 80%!.
  • The energy centres can be adapted to use the latest technologies to generate heat.
  • Each of our networks is designed so that they can be expanded, allowing more homes and businesses to benefit.
  • Because energetik is owned by the Council, we can concentrate on being better value. Any profits we make will be reinvested for local benefit.
