District Heat Systems

An award-winning district heat network specialist for public sector bodies and commercial clients, Easy Heat Systems are leading the design and build of the most innovative district heating systems across the UK.

Easy Heat Systems are an award-winning district heating and cooling specialist for public sector bodies and commercial clients. By consolidating heat production and distribution, these networks produce savings of scale in energy production with much higher energy efficiency compared to individual heating systems. The produced heat is distributed through a network of insulated pipes to provide heating and hot water for use in properties that are connected to the heat network.

Our District Heat Networks centralise heat generation from a single energy centre to individual sub-stations placed strategically in individual buildings and tower blocks. Using a combination of Air Source Heat Pumps, Solar PV, and Combined Heat and Power as solutions for heat generation, District Heat Systems transforms housing stock and commercial facilities into modern, low carbon properties that reduce operation and maintenance costs.
