A new maintenance service for heat network metering systems has been launched to help contractors and engineers.

​Heatworks Solutions is designed to support M&E contractors, heating contractors, building services and consulting engineers with maintenance of the complete heat network metering function, regardless of the type of meter specified or installed. 
Heatworks is already a heat metering maintenance expert. It is part-owned by Rydon Maintenance, a £300m housing development, maintenance and refurbishment group, and originates from sister company, Insite Energy, which is responsible for managing metering billing and payment for 22,000 homes across 140 communal heating schemes in the UK. 

Lyndsey John, head of delivery at Heatworks Solutions, said: “Metering for heat networks is becoming an increasingly specialist area and we see a lot of common costly mistakes made in the specification process and in particular, with needless over-engineering. We aim to partner with heating contractors, plugging the knowledge gaps and saving them time and money by devising efficient heat metering system designs that meet their customers’ specification. We can also ensure that the heat metering provision complies with the latest Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations.

“While other heat metering and billing companies offer maintenance services, only Heatworks currently offers a supply and install service for meters that are not its own or that it does not run. This makes Heatworks an ideal partner to use across a contractor’s or engineer’s client portfolio.”

Heatworks Solutions’ services, including 24-hour emergency cover, are initially offered in London and all areas inside the M25.
