You have just arrived at a comfortable hotel room or a pleasant cottage. Get into the holiday mood and easily save electricity!
WHEN LODGING AND STAYING
Also dress in suitably warm clothing when indoors. Woollen socks are a more pleasant choice than the fake tropical conditions created by radiators.
If you start to feel too warm, lower the temperature of the room or talk to the service individual in charge. Ventilate the premises quickly.
Close all the doors and windows when you leave, also the interior doors. Exit the premises as quickly as possible, so no excess heat is lost.
During the summer, only use air conditioning when you are in the room - uninhabited rooms do not require any cooling.
Warm candle light and outdoor fires create a nice atmosphere. Remember a fire-proof base, turn off unneseccary light and enjoy.
Turn off any equipment which is unused and in the stand-by mode. Remove chargers from electric sockets after use.
The heating of apartments may become truncated if the sauna is turned on for several hours. Do not let a heated sauna idle unused, and switch the sauna stove off immediately after using the sauna.
A suitably pleasant temperature for the steam of a sauna is 70-80 degrees. Having a sauna together is more fun and also saves energy!
TIP: A cold radiator often means that the room in question has already reached its appropriate temperature - about 20-22 degrees. A hot radiator in turn may mean that there may be some draught and that the electricity may be going to waste. If the radiator glows hot, please check that all the windows and doors are closed.
Use of the water
The tap water of Levi is clean ground water and clearly one of the best in the world!
Surely, Finland doesn’t have a shortage of water! Perhaps not, but wasted eater has often been heated, and has thus consumed energy. Runoff water has been chemically treated in vain at a water treatment plant. Therefore, it is worthwhile also conserving water!
A short refreshing shower saves hundreds of litres of water when compared to a bath or even a long shower. Stop the shower when you are applying soap or shampoo.
Fill your trekking bottle with fresh tap water.
Cool your drinking water in the refridgerator, thus long periods of running water can be avoided.
When washing dishes or laundry, wash with full loads and use environmentally friendly detergents. It is worthwhile using the shorter, colder water washing and eco-programs of the washing machines.
At hotels, use towels and bed sheets for several days. This conserves water and reduces the amount of detergent that is released into the nature.
TIP: You can indulge in longer water games in spa pools, in addition to swimming beaches in the summer!
