Minibems fits the bill

Minibems, heat networks, metering, heating, regulations

With over 300,000 existing heat network connections in the UK that still require a fit-for-purpose metering and billing system, and regulations due to be updated soon, now is a good time for building owners to assess their housing stock and source the best service provider to meet their needs.

The new launch from Minibems is designed to provide the solutions to these challenges. It offers metering and billing solutions that are designed for easy integration in existing or new build developments that also provide synergy with their heat network performance system.

Providing good levels of flexibility, Minibems credit and pre-payment billing options can be switched remotely depending on building requirements and residents’ circumstances. The system can also be set so that vulnerable residents are never left without heating or hot water.

The system can also be set so that vulnerable residents are never left without heating or hot water. Minibems also make it easy for residents to make payments and keep their heating on, meaning customer satisfaction is high and ongoing management is hassle-free for building operators.

Minibems operates a real-time payment system where credits made are applied to the controller instantly and these can be made via the Pingit App, EPay cash or card payments, direct debit or standing order. Credit billing customers receive bills on a monthly or quarterly basis, and these are based on actual meter readings, as per the requirements of the Heat Network (Metering & Billing) Regulations 2014. All billing customers can view their current balance online or via the in-home Minibems touch screen display.
