We have installed Air-Conditioning that will provide cooling in the summer and heating in the winter.Â It blows air via the in-built ducts cooling / heating the Lounge and the two bedrooms.
Also to try and save the environment (and our costs) we have also installed a "power" card reader that will control the cost of the electricity used in the apartment. Basically it takes 10 Euro cards and loads that much electricity when a card is inserted. It shows the usage and the amount of credit left. We have tested it out with ourselves and a couple of friends and with normal usage a 10 Euro card lasted us a week. This was without the A/C on. What we plan to do is ensure that the meter has at least 10 Euros credit on it when guests arrive. Then host can then supply additional cards if you require them. If you don't use a card you have purchased then the host will refund you at the end on your stay.
