District Heat

District heat is a heating technology, where water or mist is heated in a power plant, then the warmed water is lead to the real estate’s heat distribution center, after this the water is lead back to the power plant. In the heat distribution center’s heat exchanger, part of the heat energy of the district heat water is moved into the real estate’s network of radiator water. In a rarely used solution, the water from district heat is directed directly to the real estate’s radiator network, in this situation, the temperature of the district heat network is lower than usual.

District heating is used especially in built-up areas. The reliability of delivery of district heat is excellent and the energy it produces is even. Heat exchange technology has developed during the last decades and so district heat energy produces more efficient heating than earlier.
