  • Heating is underfloor throughout, there are controls in each room. Set to 18 in most rooms.

  • We have mechanical heat recovery and ventilation system in the house which circulates fresh air throughout the house and reduced the need to open windows for air. It also distributes heat throughout.

  • Sauna -  Operating instructions are outside the sauna room.
