  • Central heating with payment on consumption (a counter is installed for each apartment, and radiators are equipped with thermostats).
  • Electric heating may be of several types:
    • electric boiler (for the whole building, floor or separately in each apartment)
    • separate heating devices (such as electrical radiators)
    • a heat pump uses geothermal energy to heat the coolant, reheating by electricity. Heat pumps are of different types, depending on the initial conditions at the site.
  • Gas heating paid for consumption (gas boiler to the building, a counter is installed for each apartment, and radiators are equipped with thermostats).
