Eco-friendliness

In Koskikara you are able to have an eco-friendly vacation. The design and building solutions of the chalet are aimed to a long energy-efficient lifetime with robust and reliable construction. Koskikara is built carefully to last for several generations. The chalet has the highest energy efficiency grading and it is using eco-electricity. The central heating is based on geothermal energy. There is forced heat recovery ventilation and the home appliances have the energy class A+ at the minimum. All the building material comes from Finland with few exceptions. During the building period the garbage has been minimised and recycled such that very little amount of the all waste has ended in a refuse dump. Most of the furniture is made of Finnish birch (by the owner). The chalet can be reached also by using public transportation.
