Works that must be completed in a building’s heating system before the installation of individual heat cost meters

A new heating system must be installed or the old system must be renovated, which must include new radiators or at least a priming device and a thermostatic valve before each radiator, thereby ensuring the possibility of heat adjustment;
Balancing works have been performed on the heating system, in accordance with the project.
The heating station has modern automation and a heat exchanger, the heat pump has been replaced with a new pump with a frequency transformer;
Since the meters are programmed in accordance with the capacity of each individual radiator with up to 1 W accuracy, the radiator type and capacity in the apartment must be determined either on the basis of the project, or a list must be drafted that includes data on each apartment; if the project is old and the radiators are old, then the list must include apartments where new radiators have been arbitrarily installed, incl. their characteristics (manufacturer of the radiators, type).

Savings and comfortable heating can be ensured in the apartment with the use of a thermostatic valve.

A thermostatic valve provides the option of adjusting the room temperature between 9 °C to 26 °C . The thermostat range corresponds approximately to the room temperature (the temperature must be regulated on the basis of the room temperature readings, not the radiator temperature). All installations, electrical devices, electrical stove and persons present in the room give off heat that can be utilised in the apartment. High-quality thermostats fully utilise this heat by reducing heating.

The thermostats are excellent devices for the reasonable and efficient use of thermal energy.

Where are heat cost allocators used?

Heat cost allocators have been used in Europe for over 50 years. At first, only fluid-based allocators were used, but now they are often electronic. As the market leader, Techem services over 37 million devices. The electronic allocators are continuously perfected, and in the near future they shall completely cover the registration of heat costs.
The measuring of thermal energy costs with allocators is the most effective and the cheapest method used in whole Europe. The allocators help users to reasonably utilise the thermal energy, prevent the wasting of energy sources, and facilitate eco-friendly attitudes.

Some useful tips for the saving of thermal energy:

Joonis1 It is completely sufficient, if the room temperature is 20 °C, but only 15 °C in the kitchen.
Each lowered temperature degree means approximately 6% savings in the heat costs.
Joonis2 The doors and windows must be insulated.
A situation may not develop, where the heat that is being paid for leaves the apartment.
Joonis3 The room temperature may be lowered by 5 degrees during the night.
This way, you save up to 30% of the heat.
Joonis5 If you hear the radiators bubbling, they must be immediately ventilated.
Joonis7_EST The apartments do not need more than 10 minutes of airing time, and during that time the thermostatic valve must be turned shut.
In that way the heat in the walls and furniture is preserved, and it enables the fresh air that entered the room during airing to warm up.
Joonis6 One should not dry one’s clothes on radiators, because then the radiator remains hot, but the room remains cold.
