HiU’s are high-efficiency hydronic heating systems that are generally installed in a high-rise, mixed-use commercial complexes that have many apartments or condominiums. Many of these buildings have several stories and many units. The main components are the water heater, heat pump, and condenser. The components are intended to be highly energy-efficient, yet still offer good value for money. The installation process is by an experienced team of experienced London hiu engineers who have installed hiuses for numerous commercial properties.
There are two types of HIU’s – high-efficiency and low-efficiency. HIU repair are designed for high-efficiency heating systems and deliver high levels of energy efficiency compared to equivalent gas and electric systems. They also have the potential of reducing costs associated with upgrading conventional systems, while delivering great flexibility and cost savings over the life of the building. In addition, they offer significant tax benefits and are available in both standard installations and the accelerated build format. The installation time is considerably shorter than that required for a gas system.
There are many factors that must be taken into account when it comes to selecting and installing hiuses in high-rise commercial centers. The location of the structure is one of the key considerations. If the property is located in an area where high-pressure hot water can be found, then there is a high chance that the installation of the hot water supply would need to be monitored on a regular basis and regularly serviced to ensure adequate levels of supply. For this reason, many properties with a large number of individual units will require the installation of both a low-pressure and high-efficiency hiu.
In areas where heating budgets are typically tight, the addition of a high-efficiency high is the preferred solution to avoid the need for the expensive installation of a new system. High-efficiency heaters can deliver higher efficiency rates and greater energy savings, while at the same time providing hot water in the form of a shower, whilst simultaneously being cooled with a vapor barrier. This allows the introduction of a touch screen shower, which is especially convenient for properties that have existing systems. Hiu heaters can also be combined with power showers for the purpose of maximizing the available water supply.
The cost savings associated with the installation of hiuses over traditional high-efficiency heaters are particularly attractive to property owners who wish to trim back on their heating bills whilst also ensuring that they remain compliant with environmental regulations. As well as the opportunity of achieving energy savings, houses can be designed to meet specific objectives. For example, for high-rise commercial properties with several units, a combination of bi-fold doors and bi-folding glass can be implemented. However, in a property that comprises one or two downstairs units, there are many options that can be incorporated into the design, which include sliding doors and/or skylights.
When it comes to safety, many homeowners are more concerned about preventing accidental injury than preventing the spread of deadly fires. Unfortunately, when hiuses are installed in large new apartment complexes with multiple dwellings, they are often at risk of overheating. Installing heaters that use natural gas or propane instead of electricity is the best way to ensure the highest levels of safety, as these systems are far more reliable than their electricity-powered counterparts. Although housing can be expensive, there are also financial benefits to be gained, such as the avoidance of a range of maintenance and insurance costs. It is advisable therefore when installing hiuses, to ensure that they are installed by professionals.
