Energy Saving
Retreat: Hotel Milano Scala
Italy > Lombardia

The use of heat pumps for the heating and air-conditioning systems, thus with no emissions of polluting agents, is not the only strategy adopted by the Hotel to reduce the energy consumption and, consequently, environment pollution. The Hotel is equipped with a computer-based plant monitoring the heating and cooling parameters in every area, together with the power consumption. Rooms are managed by magnetic cards for energy optimization and there are magnetic sensors blocking the heating/cooling system when the window is opened. Water consumption in the rooms is strongly limited thanks to filters which reduce the flow but guarantee comfort to clients at the same time.

In the kitchen, the induction-based electric rings allow fast cooking without any thermal dispersion and the ovens have ventilated conveyors.
