Today is a nice day but termometr shows + 6C. It is time to start a heating season. Heating season in Ukraine is the period from early fall to the spring during which additional heat is needed to keep houses comfortable for occupants .

Usually, the heating season in Ukraine starts either from October 15th and finishes on April 15th or it can start is the temperature is below 8C . For example in 2015 heating season started October 1st and last until April 30th . In 2016 it started on October, 14. It means that the transition to the temperature conditions for the heating season throughout the country will take place on October 14-15, which is 5-10 days earlier than usual.

Generally, the duration of that season depends on such factors as temperature regime , the amount of the planned budget expenditures with the price of gas , and the possibility of thermal infrastructure. And the second factor may play a crucial role in determining the heating season opening and duration . This explains regular heat outages that even occur without prior notification .

This year Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center (НС) forecasts that the heating season, from the viewpoint of temperature conditions, will last no less than 160-180 days. This was stated by Anatoly Prokopenko, thewinterDeputy Director of HC during the annual conference. At the same time, according to weather the winter 2016 - 2017 will be relatively warm as it has been in the last few years . According to the HC, after October 13, daytime temperatures in Kyiv and most parts of the country will not exceed 6-7 ° C, and it starts to rain and snow.

It is well known that conflict with Russian Federation negatively affected the price of the gas supplied to Ukraine . According to the thoughts of the head of country's main energetic company , in terms of coal shortage, Ukraine will have to launch the oil-gas units of the central power plant. This is one of the least expensive heating options , which may be used. Nevertheless, the head of state assured that there are no reasons for concern .
