Heat Energy Charges
One Manchester is a heat energy supplier to a number of housing schemes where we manage communal heating plant facilities.
There are a number of communal plant rooms situated at each block. The plant room provides heated water to serve each flat via a heat network. An individual heat meter measures how much heating and hot water each flat uses so that you only pay for what you use.
This system is a much safer method of providing heating and hot water to flats within a tower block than the individual gas supplies that were in place previously.
Your tariff is an all-in rate, meaning that there is no separate standing charge and you will only pay for the energy that you use.
One Manchester does not make a profit on this scheme. The tariff you pay covers the costs we incur to run the system. We will review the tariff on a regular basis and inform customers in advance of any changes.
Please refer to your welcome pack which explains how to do this. You should contact us if you lose your heat energy payment card on 0330 355 1000. You may be charged for a replacement card.
You will be expected to return your heat energy payment card to One Manchester when you end your tenancy. If you do not, then you may be charged for a replacement.
