Pražská teplárenská began providing heating for homes and businesses in Prague on Monday. The reason is the lower average daily temperatures and the weather forecast for the following days. The company announced this on its website. Last year, the company kicked off the heating season the next day, on September 20, according to spokesperson Marko Pšeniční.

If it is hot for a long time, the company will reduce heating. “Our transfer stations are equipped with an automatic system, which automatically regulates the operating equipment when outside temperatures rise and limits heating so that energy is not wasted. For transfer stations not operated by our companies, if necessary, it is necessary to contact their operators first.”

According to the decree of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the heating season begins in September and lasts until the end of May. The start, interruption and termination of the heat supply depends on the average daily outdoor temperatures and the weather forecast according to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ).

Heating stations begin to provide heat if the average daily temperature drops below 13°C for two consecutive days and no rise in temperature is expected the next day. If the average daily temperature exceeds 13 degrees for two days in a row, and depending on the weather, cooling cannot be expected, the heating plants will cut off or stop the heat supply.
