Master bedroom air conditioning on the 2nd floor:

  • The control is located next to the lamp
  • Do not let the curtain cover the unit
  • Close the door.

Unfortunately, cool air cannot reach the other room due to obstacles (door frame, corridor, etc.). However, feel free to use the fans.

A pump that distributes hot water quickly throughout the house is operational between 6 AM and midnight. If you need it outside of this period.

Shower and bath
