From 2024, it will no longer be possible to connect to the mains gas network and at AH&P we are committed to delivering a cost-effective alternative that also reduces carbon footprints while meeting planning obligations.
Aberdeen City Council wants to see a city-wide heat network capable of distributing the heat soon to be available from the Torry energy-from-waste plant and is keen to encourage new build developers to connect. Our equipment is built to last and maintenance costs are significantly lower than those associated with other technologies. We also monitor the performance of all our equipment to ensure reliability.
For new build housing, we use a hydraulic interface unit (HIU) to bring heat from the network into the property. This is a compact piece of equipment, the size of a traditional gas boiler but with a flatter profile. There is no need for any flues so it can be positioned anywhere.
Heat from the external mains is then transferred via the HIU which then pumps in around the internal heating system. Radiators can be thermostat-controlled and we also install a central thermostat to allow maximum heat control.
Maintenance takes place in the summer months to ensure no interruption of supply, but should there be an unscheduled outage we will be with you quickly. We always prioritise elderly and other vulnerable customers.
With commercial new builds, heat enters the building via a plate heat exchanger which is typically installed in a basement plant room. Without the need for a boiler, valuable space is freed up for other business purposes. We will work with you, your advisors and contractors to identify the right technical specification, design and installation for your new build.

AH&P’s heat networks are expanding all the time and it’s easy to check whether we will be coming to your area soon — just call us on 01224 580058. We can provide commercial clients with reliable low-carbon heat at a competitive rate and in some locations we can also supply electricity.
If you’re interested in exploring AH&P as a supplier, you will need to consider the age of your current heating plant as it is unlikely we would be able to provide a ‘distress’ connection. Heat from our mains network enters the building through a plate heat exchanger, typically located in a basement plant room. There is no boiler, which frees up valuable space for other purposes.
The equipment we supply has a long life, and maintenance costs are considerably lower than conventional technologies. We also monitor the performance of all our equipment to ensure reliability.
In the unlikely event that you experience an outage, we provide a call-out service. Our engineers will work with you, your advisors and contractors to identify the right technical specification, design and installation. Call us on 01224 580058 and let’s see how we can help you.
