Heating & air-conditioning

With temperatures varying from below -30 degrees Celsius (and even more) in the winter up to +30 degrees in the summer, the Finnish construction industry has a lot to think of when it comes to heating and air conditioning solutions. We have very good distance-heating networks, but only in the urban areas. Many isolated areas and houses rely on their own heating systems. Fossil-fuelled heating and electric heating is still popular in these cases, but environmental friendly and sustainable alternatives are becoming hugely popular, not only because of their ecological features, but inexpensive price features as well.

Air-conditioning has not been that popular in Finland in the past. However, as the temperatures have gotten warmer in Finland, and because of the nightless summer nights when the sun does not set making it impossible for some buildings to cool down, cooling solutions are slowly starting to gain ground.
