In 2013, DISTRICLIMA prevented the emission of 17,502 tonnes of CO2, which is equivalent to avoiding 8.8 million urban car journeys or planting 875,000 trees (6 times the number of trees in the city of Barcelona)

FAQ - Frequent questions

PROJECT / TECHNICAL


Districlima's services are generally physically limited by the connection valves (valves incorporated). These may be found in the street, inside the substation or in the service gallery.


You should call your maintenance service provider. However, we also recommend that you alert us by ringing 93 462 04 42.


Districlima recommends insulating all exchangers. For the cold water exchanger Districlima requires a condenser collector tray.


To ensure optimum efficiency and compatibility with interior installations, you should consult and follow the indications included in our techincal guide.


Yes, but we recommend starting up the installation sufficienty in advance to ensure optimum comfort for your users.


It is generally best to avoid a small thermal jump with a large flow as this requires greater pumping with the resulting higher electrical consumption. To increase the thermal jump, eliminate any cold water recirculating elements using 2 -way valves only, installing presostatic valves at the end of the circuit line,...

DEVELOPER / OWNER

 


Connection will be possible depending on the proximity of the building to the existing grid, energy requirements and anticipated expansion plans.

If the building has a centralised system and you are intending to replace current equipment this could be an excellent time to look into connecting to our grid. For more information please contact our sales department at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by calling 933 638 685. Subsequently, the developer may connect by his own means following Districlima's techincal specifications.


The developer's initial investment for the Districlima solution incldues two concepts:

1) Connection rights established in line with the existing public rate and kilowatts or heat and cold to be contracted;

2) Connection costs. According to the power required and the distance of the building to the grid, Districlima will draw up a quote for connection. Once the customer has accepted the quote, it will be included in the supply contract.

The user should pay a deposit two weeks before connecting. The sum of the deposit will be stated in the contract .

For more information about these amounts please contact our sales department at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by calling 933 638 685


No. Districlima only provides a connection up to the inside of your building and leaves shut-off valves prepared. Districlima guarantees contractual power in these valves. The rest of the air conditioning installation (energy exchange substation, energy distribution, terminal units, etc) is performed by the building's developer under techincal advice from Districlima and belongs to the owner of the building.


Depending on the power to be contracted, the surface required for the energy exchange substation can vary between 30 and 60m2, that is, significantly lower than that of a conventional installation. For more information please consult our Technical Guide.


The best location is floor -1 and as near as possible to the connection point to be decided with Districlima.


Buildings connected to Districlima actively participate in reducing CO2 emissions as they consume less fossil fuels. As a result, buildings connected to Districlima grids obtain better energy qualifications.

 

USER

 


Invoices are issued monthly, charging the previous month's consumption


See sample invoice and explanation of its concepts.


Because the MWh (energy consumed) and the m3 that correspond to the water flow used to provide this energy are invoiced.


The Long Use (LU) version has a higher fixed cost and a lower variable cost so it is recommended if the air conditioning installation is to be running for long periods over the year. For example, in offices it is generally more cost effective to choose the LU version for cold and Short Use (SU) for heat. Meanwhile, in hotels it is usually better value to choose LU for heat than for cold.
