Heat distribution
The main source of heat in Znin is the boiler house located in the industrial part of the town, which is fitted with two WP 10 boilers with the nominal power of 11.6 MW each. The length of the heat distribution network is 23.5 km [14.6 miles]. There are two more boiler houses in the district, which supply two housing estates in Brzyskorzystewko and Cerkwica with heat.

Water supply
The length of the water supply network is 260 km [162.5 miles]. The network's condition is sufficient. 97% of the houses in the district are connected to the system. There are 17 water intakes in the district plus 5 owned by Agencja Nieruchomosci Rolnych [Agricultural Property Agency - APA], 7 water treatment plants plus 4 owned by APA and 3466 water terminals connecting indivual buildings with the system. There are plans to modernize waterworks in Sobiejuchy and Nadborow.

Gas supply
Znin is supplied with gas from the DN 150 high pressure gas pipeline. First grade gas measuring station is located outside the town's boundaries in the village of Murczyn. The district rural areas have yet to be connected to the gas supply system. The district had a plan of connecting its rural areas and the northwestern part of Znin to the gas supply drawn up in 1999. A building of a DN 100 high pressure gas pipeline being a branch of the high pressure gas pipeline Barcin-Znin-Kcynia is projected in the plan.

The northwestern part of Znin is first on the list of the places to be connected to the network since social welfare house, the industrial part of the town as well as an area of detached houses are located there.

The realisation of the abovementioned plan is dependent on the amount of funds Bydgoszcz Gas Supplier is going to provide.

The condition of the existing telecommunications network is excellent. Telekomunikacja Polska S.A. has an automatic switchboard situated in Znin and others in nearby villages: Brzyskorzystewko, Gorzyce, Jadowniki Rycerskie. Apart from TP S.A. EL-Net S.A. operates in the district.
