For heat supply interruption and the Treaty on the planned period of heating system is disconnected, the supplier is a warning to the user in writing at least ten days in advance. If five days after warning the supplier fails to disconnect the heating time to reconcile with the user, the supplier determines this time independently and notify the user. On the heating system shut off time the user repeatedly warned 24 hours before disconnecting. 28. Immediately preventing crashes and damage the supplier of supply system, warm which makes impossible the heat supply, the vendor has the right to disconnect the user and heating disconnection reason to announce then. VIII. Settlement of the heat used a 29. the supplier sells heat user according to the tariffs, which confirmed and published in accordance with the law "On regulators of public services" and energy law. 30. heat delivered to the user shall be determined according to the heat meter readings, except for the provisions in paragraph 37. 31. For technical reasons, the heat meter is set to the bounds of the home heat loss for heating system pipes from home border to the installation site of the measuring apparatus shall be determined by calculation, and heat loss indicates agreement: 31.1. If heat meter installed in the supplier's side of the border, before the home heat loss incurred between the heat meter installation location and boundaries of affiliation, report of heat supplied to the user;
19.4. If the heat meter installed on the user's side of the border, before the home heat loss incurred between the heat meter installation location and boundaries of affiliation, plus the heat quantity delivered to the user. 32. The cost of the quantity of heat transfer from the supplier by the heating system the heating system users used pallets for new heating system connection, or for other purposes, the user shall pay in addition. The fee for the coolant and filling the input supplier shall bear all the costs for the preparation of the coolant. 33. If the user does not fulfil contractual obligations, but the supplier to the boundaries of affiliation has provided heat transfer parameters, the supplier is entitled to charge a compensation of up to approximately the following: 33.1. the arbitrary maximum load and allowed coolant flow exceedance of-according to triple rates on the amount of energy consumed in excess of the quantity specified in the contract;
33.2. the atgait the coolant temperature rises by more than three degrees Celsius compared to the temperature specified in the contract schedule-fee according to the tariff for heat quantity calculated as the quantity of coolant flow multiplied by the temperature difference between the actual temperature and atgait atgait temperature, determined in accordance with the schedule;
33.3. the coolant loss, in excess of the quantity specified in the contract, as well as the arbitrary use of coolant-according to triple the fees for the input of heat transfer, to cover the heat losses incurred in the delivery of this heat transfer;
33.4. the condensate quantity that the user is not given to the supplier under the contract volume and quality,-according to triple the fees for the input of heat transfer. 34. Compensation for the settlement period shall be paid simultaneously with the final settlement. 35. If the user is not arbitrary, in coordination with the supplier, is signed by the heating system, changed the heat meter connection diagram, removed seals, damaged the heat meter, disrupting their normal activities or the supplier's representative has denied access to heating systems to control the heat consumption mode and records sealed heating system or end the heat supply, the supplier the amount of heat consumed is calculated, taking into account the maximum load of the last inspection. 36. If it is established that the provisions of paragraph 35, referred to by the representative of the supplier shall be drawn up in the presence of the user. 37. If the heat meter is broken or turned off for repair, inspection, replacement, or for other reasons, for the period in which the heat meter is not working, the heat used is determined based on the average consumption during the period when the heat meter is running, and at least three 24-hour. In this case, the heating and ventilation of the waste heat quantity multiplied by the coefficient k: Tt-T1v k = — — — — —-that Tt-Tt T2v-heated room air average temperature;
T1v-outdoor air average temperature during the period for which the calculation is to be made;

T2v-outdoor air average temperature during the period that the calculation is based on. 38. Settlement of the heat spent the previous month in accordance with the Bill, which is up to next month's fifth day statement. If the user's system allowed maximum heating load is greater than two megawatts, the vendor has the right to require the user to make payments to starpnorēķin. The final payment shall be made on the 20th of the following month date, taking into account the heat meter readings and mid-period payments. 39. If the user is more than three times the delays in payment, the user is obliged at the supplier's request, advance payment of the further conduct of the average monthly payment. 40. If the payment documents found error or incorrect siltumskaitītāj position reading, user within 10 days notify the supplier. 41. the Suppliers within 10 days after receipt of the notification of the user check and, if necessary, also the heat meter and test results are reported to the user. 42. If an error is encountered in the settlement of accounts or used in calculations of heat, the supplier commits a conversion for the last billing period. 43. the supplier is entitled to make the heat used the conversion for the period when the coolant flow is less than the user heat meter below the allowable limit, assuming that the flow-through quantity is equal to the lower of the allowable limit.
