The house has central heating and air-conditioning throughout.
Central heating is provided by a 50,000BTU gas-fired boiler. Mains gas is not available in Cyprus so LPG is delivered by truck and stored in a 500 litre container at the side of the house.
The Central heating system has three 'zones' first floor, ground floor (including the basement) and hot water - all of which can be separately controlled by a programmer in the entrance hall. The system has 16 radiators and heated towel rails.
The Lounge/Dining Room also has a 'coal effect' gas fire. Gas for this fire is supplied in 50Kg bottles and stored in a cupboard at the side of the house.
For most of the year (at least ten months) hot water is supplied by solar panels mounted on the roof of the garage. However, in inclement weather the water can be heated either by the central heating system or an electric immersion heater.
Gas for the hob in the kitchen is supplied in 20Kg bottles that are purchased in the village.
The house is in an elevated location and needs little cooling in summer. However, most rooms (all apart from the garage, utility room and basement store room) are fitted with split unit air conditioning systems (nine in total). These units have been capacity matched to the size of the room and will quickly reduce the temperature and humidity. The split-unit systems can also be used to provide heat if required.
