Docherty introduces new Heat Interface Units

Docherty has introduced the new Hiper Heat Interface Units (HIU) into its range. The HIU is suitable for projects as diverse as apartments, social housing or RHI district heating schemes. It is compact, requires very little space in the property and is easy to install.

An HIU fulfills the same function as a gas boiler in a property when used as part of a communal heating network. A central plant room, either a gas boiler or a renewable energy source, will generate heat which is distributed through a network of pipes to each separate property in the building. Each home or apartment has its own HIU installed, which uses heat distributed from the central network to provide heating and domestic hot water, replacing the need for individual boilers in each property.

It is, in many ways like a combi boiler, providing central heating and instantaneous hot water, but without flame or flue.

Advantages of the new HIU:

  • Instantaneous hot water production
  • Electronic temperature control
  • Optimised heating temperature control as standard
  • Standby mode temperature control
  • Lower return temperatures to the network
  • Low carbon heat networks – renewable energy sources
  • Weather compensation option
  • Low energy pump
  • Radiators or underfloor heating
  • Minimal maintenance reducing running costs
