Denmark's heating supply systems are generally divided into 3 categories:
- areas supplied with district heating
- areas supplied with natural gas
- areas with individual heating.
It should be noted that if you are a tenant, you can contact your landlord for information concerning your heating supply and your options for changing your heating supply, which will require the consent of your landlord.
District heating and natural gas heating are both means of collective supply and are generally available in towns/cities and residential areas where there are many houses situated close to each other.
Further information on natural gas supplies for heating is found on the information page for gas.
If you live in an area which has been prepared for district heating, you have a right to be connected to the district heating network. The municipality is responsible for planning heating supplies and can tell you what supplies are available in the area.
If no collective supply is available at an address, consumers can use a wide variety of individual heating solutions, such as oil heating, pellet heating, heat pumps, etc.
If, as a consumer, you wish to replace the existing individual supply, you can contact your municipality to find out your options.
