District heating inspection

Does your property have district heating equipment that is over 15 years old? Or are you buying or selling a property that uses district heating? Having an inspection done of the equipment is recommended in both of these cases.

The inspection of district heating equipment improves the safety and reliability of the heating. The inspection takes approximately two hours and helps to identify possible maintenance needs. At the same time, we will also ensure that the heating continues to work in an energy-efficient manner.

The condition of the equipment will also affect the cost of using it. For example, improving the cooling of district heating water will directly affect the contracted water flow of your property, which, in turn, has an impact on the fixed fee.

We recommend an inspection to be carried out if the equipment is at least 15 years old and when a property is sold. Inspections also allow the buyer to ensure that the heating equipment of the property is in order.

An inspection contains

  • Leakage tests for heat exchangers, in which we ensure the equipment has no internal or external leaks
  • Review and inspection of heating substation controls, water circulation pumps, temperature sensors, and gauges
  • Review of the heat exchanger operating temperatures and cooling of district heating water
  • User guidance
  • An inspection summary, which includes the heating substation set values and measurement results

As an additional service, we can provide a written report detailing the condition and faults of the equipment.
