Tschüss 2018! Hallo 2019! Tschüss 2018! Hallo 2019! Waterway-Dream.com

The year 2018 was not yet over but we were still working for our guests. Our last holiday in 2018 took us to our beloved home. After Irma in 2017, Red Tide deeply moved us in 2018. The good news: There was no more indication of Red Tide during our stay.

As we can’t be in Florida permanently, we thought about ways to contribute to the preservation of the nature; not only by means of donations but with our home itself. We focused on these topics: ‘energy’ and ‘waste avoidance’, as you can read in this and our last article.

Of course, we made some preparations in advance to carry out improvements on site. Thus, lamps for the driveway and the house wall, a storage system for the garage, as well as a safe and new TVs for living room and guest room were waiting for us.

We have equipped all lamps with LEDs for the sake of the environment. We’re proud to announce that there’s not a single regular light bulb in our home. That does not only reduce the energy costs, but also the waste of replaces light bulbs as LED’s last far longer. To reduce the energy usage of the AC, all exterior doors are equipped with sensors. Stays a door open for a certain time, the AC will turn off. That saves energy and avoids an icy AC compressor.

For the comfort of our guests, we have removed needless light switches and replaced as a clou some outlets with such having an integrated child safety feature and USB ports. Thus, all you need to charge your tablet or phone is the appropriate USB cable. No power supply, no travel adaptor. smile

In the bathrooms we have replaced the fixed shower heads with spa shower heads with hand shower, which makes having a shower even more enjoyable.

So much has happened in the last days of the year 2018 and the beginning of 2019. Enjoy during your next stay the innovations themselves and secure yourself today a few days of sunshine in 2019/2020 wink
