Ecology Consciousness and Guest Comfort
We have continuously invested in environmentally conscious technologies to reduce our impact upon the resplendent natural environment of these beautiful Islands.
Our latest advance is the installation of air source heating combined with air conditioning that provides enhanced comfort for guests.
Solar Powered, Photovoltaic Electricity Generation
A south facing four kilowatt array of photo-voltaic panels contributes eco-friendly electricity.
Air Source Heating and Air Conditioning
The house benefits from investments in ecologically friendly air source heating.
In addition, the dining room and luxurious guest lounge have full air conditioning facilities for added guest comfort during the hot summer season.
Natural Light Sources
We have invested in light-source tunnels bringing natural daylight to rooms without windows, thus reducing the demand for electricity most of which relies upon ecologically unfriendly production.
Electronic Vehicle Charging
We pioneered the advent of electronic vehicle charging services from B&B hospitality providers in Orkney.
We continuously monitor power usage to conserve resources.
For the comfort of all guests and the family occupants of Eastward House all forms of smoking are prohibited within the building. This includes the smoking of vapours (E cigarettes).
We thank the team from Heat Orkney for their professional expertise in project planning and managing the installation of air source heating and air conditioning.
In particular, we acknowledge their ability to minimise closure days during the installation and reduce the impact upon our building that is commonly associated with such installations.
