Electricity, water, heating and cooling
As a tenant you choose the electricity supplier yourself. Do arrange that before you move into the apartment. Tip: Check via internet which supplier is cheap.
You do not have to arrange the supply of cold water!
For heating and cooling via the floor and for the supply of hot water, the apartment is connected to a so-called heat pump system. As a tenant you are bound to the operator Eteck to close an agreement. Look for information and registration on their website www.eteck.nl
Via pipes through the floor, water flows that provide heating or cooling. In The apartment is a switch that you can put on V (heating) o (off) and K (cooling).
Leave the switch in the winter on V (heating). The thermostats in the rooms are not very precise. So if a thermostat is at 18 degrees, it may be that the actual heat in the room is 16 degrees or 20 degrees. TIP: Check the real temperature and humidity level with a thermo-/hygrometer.
In the summer, you can switch to K (cooling) if you want to cool the floor.
Do not turn the switch on o for weeks, because that may cause failures of the heating system.
The blind automatically goes down when the sun is shining. With the remote control you can send the blind up or down. If you do not send the blind up or down completely, the sunblind remains in that position. If you completely send up the blind, it will go down again, as the sun shines.
In the evening the sun blind automatically goes up and only in the morning it is possible to send the blind down again with the remote control.
If it's windy, the sun blinds will automatically rise, even though the sun shines. In this case the blind will not react on the remote control.
Fire in the parking garage
There are detectors installed in the garage, which send a signal to the fire department in case of fire or smoke. Then …
- there sounds a loud signal in the garage-•the speed gate opens
- the barriers to exit are open (which remain closed before entering)
- the fire screens that divide the spaces will close
- the fans will work at full power
Leave the parking quickly when you hear the loud signal. Do not use the car!.
