Heat Network Regulations

Landlord and managing agents who charge gas used for heating to more than one tenant now have a legal duty to register their building as a heat network and install (if viable) heat meters to charge tenants for the gas they use for heating.

Inteb supports landlords and manging agents throughout the UK with a range of tailored services, including surveys, site classifications, feasibility studies, system design and installation services for heat metering and more.

Our teams will ensure you are fully compliant with all relevant regulations, giving you and your tenants complete assurance.

‘Heat suppliers’ (or agents thereof) who charge tenants for heating, cooling, and/or hot water must now categorise sites into three new classes as a first step towards compliance – Viable, Exempt, or Open.

Our Heat Networks tool simplifies this process and confirms actions required against any given site for legal compliance.

Inteb clients can quickly check their portfolio and pass results to surveyors and/or management staff to ensure compliance has been started.

Benefits To Client:

Legal Compliance and Risk Mitigation: Compliance with heat network regulations ensures that operators meet legal requirements, reducing the risk of penalties, fines, or legal
disputes. It also helps to mitigate reputational risks associated with non-compliance.

Energy Efficiency: Regulations often set standards for energy efficiency and performance of heat networks. Compliance with these standards encourages the use of efficient technologies and practices, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower carbon emissions.

Cost Savings: Implement recommended improvements to lower energy bills and extend the lifespan of your equipment.

Enhanced Environmental Performance: Heat network regulations can promote the use of renewable energy sources, waste heat recovery, or other sustainable practices. Compliance with these regulations supports environmental goals by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions
