It´s hot! Information about the indoor temperature of our apartments
In hot weather, we get a lot of queries about the indoor temperature of the apartments. LOAS takes care of the functionality of house-specific ventilation. The resident can also influence the temperature of the apartment himself / herself by the following means:
Do not let extra heat inside the apartment. Keep all windows and curtains closed during the day to prevent direct heat from the sun.
Keep only the necessary electrical equipment on so that no extra heat is generated. In particular, heating the oven should be avoided.
Keep fresh air valves open and clean. Replacement air flows into the apartment from air valves, which must not be blocked and whose regular cleaning is the responsibility of the resident. The fresh air valve is usually located above the window, sometimes in the door of the ventilation window. Keeping the cooker hood filter clean also promotes ventilation in the apartment.
Ventilate at night when the outdoor temperature has dropped below the indoor temperature and the structures heated during the day cool down.
Different fans can increase the air circulation in the apartment. You get most out of the fan when it is properly oriented and placed close enough. It's a good idea to put it where you need to stay the most, like next to a bed. However, remember that the fan must not be left unattended.
Cool off by taking a dip in the waves of Lake Saimaa and taking a cold shower before going to bed.
