More than 150 000 households in Croatia have centralized heating system with heated water. Most of heat energy customers are connected to one common heat meter located in the heating substation of the building. These are the buildings built before 2001 in which the piping did not provide for individual metering of heat energy for each apartment. To make cost allocation fairer for customers on a common heat meter, there is a possibility of installing heat cost allocators. For technical functionality of the system, heat cost allocators must be installed on heating fixtures in at least 50 % of the apartments connected to the same metering point. In this paper we will analyze formula for allocation of energy consumption between customers that have cost allocators installed, primarily compared with energy distributed to customers without one. We will propose new method of energy distribution and compare its results and properties with those of formula in use.
