REDUCTION OF THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF OUR HOTEL
In every room there is a general light switch which activates the electricity in the room once the customer places their card-key.
Magnetic contacts at the windows of the rooms that switch of the a/c as soon as they open.
LED light bulbs in every room
In all staff hallways, communal toilets, underground garage etc. motion detectors have been placed to turn on the lights.
The floodlights in the parking lot, the entrance of the hotel, the outdoor spaces and the pool are LED technology.
In all of the communal washrooms there are sinks with photocell in order to stop the flow of the water when there is no need for it.
All of the toilet flushes are of double flow.
In every bathroom there are wall mounted certified soap dispensers installed in order to minimize the amount of water needed for rinsing.
We inform the customers that they can change the towels and sheets depending on their needs. This “wash on demand” program saves water and detergent.
There are water saving information signs near all the taps used by the staff.
HEATING – A/C – WARM WATER
60% of the hotel’s warm water is heated up in solar systems.
The hotel’s central air conditioning uses a geothermal technology which accomplishes a 50% energy save compared to the air systems.
Heat pumps of the newest technology are used in order to save up to 60% energy compared to the traditional systems. All the above are of inverter technology for the maximum results in saving energy. Regular insulation maintenance guarantees minimum energy waste.
All the cleaning products are eco-labeled and are produced from biodegradable sources.
In all the rooms there are individual washing products as well as shampoo and soap dispensers. By using the dispensers the customer is actively taking part in environment protection as there is no waste and minimum of water is used for rinsing.
