Find out about the stages of connecting to district heat. You can also contact us and ask for further information about connecting your property to the district heating network.
DISTRICT HEAT IS SUITABLE FOR ALL TYPES OF HOUSES
District heat is suitable for all kinds of properties, whether they are a new building or an old one changing its heating method. When you are changing the heating method, having a water or air circulating heating system is an advantage.
When you order the connection, we will install the district heating pipe all the way to the district heating meter. We will also inspect the contractor’s installation plan and the equipment before commissioning.
When you get in touch with us at an early stage, we can ensure a hassle-free connection schedule that best suits your needs. The connection process may take 2–3 months, but the final schedule will be agreed on site-specifically with the contractor.
