September 22,2020 Preparing for new heating season
As the heating season of 2020/2021 approaches, SIA Bauskas siltums has performed the necessary repairs in the boiler house. Over the summer period, around 100 thermal meters in residential and non-residential buildings were verified. The metrological test has been passed by all reported thermal meters. SIA Bauskas siltums has prepared for new heating season.
SIA Bauskas siltums calls for building and apartment owners to complete heating systems repair and mandatory testing of radiator air valves to protect properties from flooding.
In multi-apartment buildings, the replacement of radiators must first be coordinated with the community of apartment owners, since the radiators belong to shares of joint ownership. The time of installation of radiators with the operator must be reconciled as it will be necessary to omit the heating system network water and it is desirable to do so by the beginning of the heating season.
The thermal energy producer is grateful and highly valued in terms of cooperation with many customers, which have settled on the thermal energy received, thereby providing the population with a continuous supply of energy.
Before heating season SIA "Bauskas siltums" calls on citizens with debts accruing for the thermal energy received, settle your commitments or agree on the arrangements for fulfilling the commitments by arriving at Bauskas siltums in the part of the subscribers to the lawyer.
