As Scorching Heatwave Continues, HEP Turns on Zagreb’s Radiators

We’re currently on Brac and spending most of our time trying to remain awake as the sun drains every atom of energy from us. A lot of lying under the air conditioner and trying to imagine what a cold breeze actually feels like has been going on. The heatwave is a strong one, and despite our house being right next to the sea, there’s very little rescue from the sun’s burning rays these days.

One thing we’re thankful for is that we’re not currently at home in Zagreb, where the temperatures are soaring and swimming in Jarun or the Sava just doesn’t quite cut it. HEP has made the situation a lot worse for some of the city’s residents by mistakenly turning on their heating, full blast. A big help indeed.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, confused residents of Vladimir Filakovac Street in the City of Zagreb were more than just a little surprised yesterday when they felt that their radiators were heating up to the highest strength possible during the intense heat of the day, reports RTL.

“Our radiators are hot, they’re heating up to the highest possible strength. Is that happening just to us or is it everyone? What’s going on?”  awoman from Zagreb asked on social media.

In the middle of the ongoing and absolutely exhausting heatwave, the valve broke down, which caused a temporary leakage of thermal energy for indoor heating into the building system, they explained from HEP-Toplinarstvo.

”Immediately after working out what had happened, the defect was rectified. We’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to our end customers for that situation and note that now the heating system in the building in question is functioning properly,” they assured from HEP-Toplinarstvo, understanding that having the heating on full blast during an intense heatwave isn’t really a much desired situation.
