Invoices for consumed heat in October for Salaspils residents who use the "Salaspils Siltums" service will decrease, as the tariff is 12.7% lower.
We will also most likely pay less because October 2020 was 1.1 degrees warmer than last year. According to "Salaspils Siltums" data, the total heat consumption of Salaspils in October is 17% lower than last year - it was influenced by warmer outdoor air temperature and the fact that the heating season started later due to the warm autumn.
During autumn and spring, residents can especially feel the benefits of an automated heating unit. In buildings with automated heating units, heat consumption is automatically regulated by the outdoor air temperature. In the heating unit, it is possible to set the required heating temperature mode for a certain period of time, for example, daily, weekly, or according to the desired indoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature rises or falls, the heating unit switches on/off. This function will prevent the building from overheating and will be positively reflected in the heating bill. An automated independent heating unit also facilitates the work of each house's service staff - no air is formed in the heating system which would interfere with heat circulation throughout the house.
Analyzing the data, the specialists of "Salaspils Siltums" found that the houses, which do not have an independent automatic heating unit, were overheated. The interiors were too hot and their residents could have higher heating bills. Ltd. "Salaspils Siltums" reminds - use heat rationally and keep up with your home consumption!
