District heating

District heating – a safe and sound alternative

District heating provides your home with heating and hot water throughout the year. District heating has low impact on the environment and the climate. It is mostly produced from renewable or recycled energy sources.


Prices and contracts

With Partille Energi you can choose between three different contracts for district heating, depending on how much deposit you wish to pay for the installation and how much heating you use per year. More information about the different contracts and the current prices here. All prices include VAT.

Contract type Hyra (Rent)

Rent your district heating substation and pay per month for the heating you use. Maintenance guarantee is included when you rent from us at Partille Energi.

Prices 2020 Hyra (Rent)

InputRent Energy price
0 SEK359 kr/mån87,8 öre/kWh
Contract type Äga (Own)

If you want to own your district heating system, you do not pay rent for the system. You can also choose to take out a maintenance guarantee and we will take care of the maintenance of the district heating exchange.

In 2020 the price for maintenance guarantee is 126 kr/mån. Start fee is 1 000 kr, if you buy the maintenance guarantee retroactively.

Prices 2020 Äga (Own)

InputRent Energy price
32 400 kr0 kronor/month
87,8 öre/kWh
Contract type Äga+ (Own+)

If you choose Äga+ (Own+), you buy your substation and will pay a higher non-refundable deposit. In this case, you will be charged an approximately 30 % lower variable energy price than if you choose any of the two other alternatives. If your consumption is high, this alternative may be to your advantage. Again, you may choose to sign a maintenance guarantee, in which case we will maintain the district heating substation.

In 2020 the price for maintenance guarantee is 126 kr/mån. Start fee is 1 000 kr, if you buy the maintenance guarantee retroactively.

Maintenance guarantee

If you choose the contract type Hyra (Rent), the maintenance guarantee is included in the monthly rent.

If you choose Äga (Own) or Äga+ (Own+), you can sign a maintenance guarantee for 126 kr/mån , when the guarantee on your district heating sub-station has expired. If you move into a property where the former owner did not have a maintenance guarantee, you will pay a start fee of 1 000 kr to sign a new maintenance guarantee.

It is possible to sign a maintenance guarantee for district heating substations that were installed a maximum of 15 years ago. If you choose to sign a maintenance guarantee after the guarantee period of your district heating central has expired, you will pay 126 kr/mån from the expiry date until the date when you sign the new maintenance guarantee contract.

What does the maintenance guarantee include?
The maintenance guarantee includes our assurance that we will correct errors, repair and replace broken parts. In the event of major errors, we might also replace the entire exchange .

Sign a district heating contract when moving in

If you move in to a detached house in Partille which is already connected to the district heating system, you will have to sign a new contract.

Let us know 30 days before the move. Once we have received your application, we will send you an agreement in duplicate. Sign both and return to us. If there are several owners of the property, everyone needs to sign the agreements. The agreement takes effect as soon as we have received it with your signature. We will then send back one of the agreements with our signature.

You will find the contract terms that apply to district heating delivery to private customers under Documents and forms

Environmental values and add-ons

News 1st January, 2020: We are taking further steps towards making our district heating an even more sustainable alternative for heating. We are now climate compensating all district heating to private customers. This means that we compensate for the carbon dioxide emissions from the district heating you use. This is done by making sure that emissions are reduced somewhere else in the world.

How is our district heating produced?

Partille Energi buys all district heating from Göteborg Energi. Approx. 70 % of the district heating produced by Göteborg Energi comes from recycled energy from industrial waste heat and waste incineration. Approx. 20 % originates from renewable fuel, like bio fuel and the remaining 10 % is produced by natural gas.

Björndammen’s district heating plant is the only production unit for district heating in Partille municipality. The plant is managed by Göteborg Energi and it is used on rare occasions, when the weather is really cold, when the network is faulty or when there is a problem at some other production unit.

Environmental values

Environmental values for our district heating are accounted for according to a method developed by Värmemarknadskommittén (the Heat Market Committee). The committee consists of representatives from Fastighetsägarna (the property owners’ national organisation), HSB and Riksbyggen (two of the largest cooperative housing associations in Sweden), Hyresgästföreningen (Tenants Association), SABO (Public Housing Sweden), and Energiföretagen Sverige (Swedenergy).

The environmental impact of district heating can be seen from three perspectives.

  • How the energy is used in terms of efficiency
  • The amount of carbon-dioxide emissions through the complete production chain
  • The amount of fossil fuels used in each district heating network
  • More information about environmental values for district heating and Värmemarknadskommittén’s agreement at Energiföretagen Sverige (Swedenergy).

If you have an issue with your district heating substation

Was your district heating installed quite recently? The basic settings might not be adjusted to your residence from the very beginning. Release air from the system a little more often during the coming months. When you switched to district heating, some of the water in your radiator system was pumped out. Some air might have got into the radiator system and this means that water may not be circulating properly.
New or older district heating substation? This is how you can check the system yourself.

Instructions for troubleshooting

No heating or hot water?

  1. Check the temperature of the incoming district heating
  2. Check if there is any electricity supply to the district heating

There is hot water, but hardly any heating in the facility

  • Check if electricity is powering the regulator equipment.
  • Check the settings for the regulator equipment.
  • Is the system pressurised? Check the preusser gauge (manometer).
  • Place your hand on the circulation pump and feel if it is working.
  • Check if the secondary dirt filter is blocked, if so, clean it and fit into place again.

There is only heating in parts of the house, what do I do?

Check that all valves are completely open.
Make sure there is pressure in the system by checking the pressure on the pressure gauge (the manometer).
Try to release air from the radiators with a valve key like this:

  1. Switch off the circulation pump.
  2. Then increase the pressure.
  3. Then wait for about 10 minutes.
  4. Release air from the radiators. A good advice is to start with the ones situated on the highest level of your building.
  5. Then increase the pressure up to the filling line.
  6. Finally restart the circulation pump.

There is heating, but no hot water

  • Is the hot water regulator working properly?
  • Check the temperature settings.

Tips for saving

If you live in a detached house, 80 % of the total energy you use in your house will be for heating and hot water. Your energy costs will also depend on how much energy your house is “leaking”. Good isolation will reduce leakages. The indoor temperature, the number of people in your household, and the size of your residence will all play a significant role in the size of your energy costs.

Tips for saving hot water
  • Fill your dishwasher to capacity. Do not wash dishes in running water.
  • Turn off the shower while you shampoo your hair and soap your body.
  • Cut the time you spend in the shower by 5 minutes, it can save you 260 kWh/year.
  • Use cold water if you only wish to rinse your hands. Hot water will probably not reach the tap before you have turned it off again
  • Replace the tap’s gasket if it is dripping. A dripping tap may cost you several hundred kronor a year in wasted water.
Tips for saving heating
  • Keep doors between living areas and storage areas closed. This will help keep a comfortable temperature in the rooms where you stay and a lower temperature in areas you do not use so often.
  • Air rooms quickly to keep the use of heating down. It is better to make a strong draught for a short time than keeping the windows open a crack for a longer time.
  • If possible, lower the temperature of the floor heating and the towel rail.
  • Check that the thermostats in your house are working. If you do not have any thermostats, it is a good idea to buy some, especially if you live in a two-story house.
