Every time we turn on the electric switch, every time we cook or open the fridge we consume energy. Energy produced at a power station is polluting the environment. For every kilowatt-hour we consume, more than one kilogram of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. By saving energy, we contribute to the protection of the environment, which makes its vital.
That’s why La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel is also actively and practically trying to help protect the environment as well as save energy.
Below you’ll find information about our effort in Santorini Island.
| Heat and air cooling system:
La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel facilities are heated by a combination of solar thermal panels on the terrace and pumps by using water circulation. In other words, water is heated by the sun. Fan coils are installed to all our suites and apartments in order to ensure better performance including the best possible control of working frequency. Optimum power is applied in all cooling and heating ranges. Maximum comfortable conditions are achieved while consuming minimum energy. All the pipe work throughout the facilities is insulated. There are also boilers to restore any shortfall.
We are collecting rain water and using it for the main swimming pool. Internal underground water tanks are used to collect water for future use. In such way we avoid waste of the public water network system.
Thermal performance efficiency:
External walls of the construction include insulation. Additional thermal insulation has been added on the roof. Moreover, all the windows are soundproof with triple energy saver.
