District heating, which has a competitive price and is environmentally sound, promotes the life of current and future generations. District heating makes living more comfortable and always keeps Finnish population centre residents warm.
Almost every second Finn lives in a district heated house which means that district heating is the most common form of heating in Finland. About 90% of residential blocks of flats, about 50% of row houses and the majority of public buildings in Finland have district heating.
How district heating works and production
District heating is produced locally and transferred from the power plant to customers via hot water running through district heating networks. The cooled district heating water is returned to the power plant for reheating.
