For you comfort :
In the summer we recommend you keep the bedroom blinds drawn and keep the windows and bedroom doors open for best circulation and use the air fans for cooling the air. This is more healthy then using the air-condiotining
IF YOU WANT TO USE THE AC THEN PLEASE CLOSE ALL WINDOWS AND DOORS.
For a mosquito free house please keep the exterior doors closed.
There is shortage of electricity in Spain in the summer. You may find some time there is only enough electric for one
a/c unit - use the one in the lounge.
Also we recommend you use the gas cooker in the back kitchen . If the electric oven and microwave are used together
this may 'trip' the electric. Turn the switch back on from the fuse panel by the front door.
