From the district heating network to the household
The distribution solutions connect households to the supply of district heating. If the transmission solutions can be compared to motorways, the distribution solutions resemble the ‘country roads’ or ‘residential streets’ of the supply network. The distribution solutions therefore feature smaller pipes, because the district heating is being transported close to the point of delivery. The volume of district heating must thus be gradually reduced so that it matches the needs of the household.
The distribution solutions are linked to a exchanger station, where the water temperature is reduced to 80°C. This helps cut heat loss during transport to the end user, as a lower water temperature translates into lower heat loss. From the exchanger station, the district heating is transported to the individual households.
