The house is equipped with thermostatically controlled electric heating to every
room. Lower temperatures are set for the bedrooms. The primary house heating
is an inverter split system heat pump. The bedrooms are equipped with the
original brown electric space heaters which have a continuous fan operation and
newer white silent convection units. Both units have adequate capacity on their
own and been programmed to the same temperature. You should use the newer silent
white units. If you arrive late at night and the bedrooms are cold, you may wish
to switch on both units for the first half hour to warm the room as quickly as
possible, and then switch off the fan heaters for the rest of your stay. A time
clock system will activate the bedroom heating units as follows: ‑ 6 PM TO 8 AM
In the event of
a power stoppage operating times will be incorrect. Please request property
manager to adjust time clocks.

Returning to House
– particularly after skiing.
Your needs may depend on how cold the weather is.
You may find
that if you switch the unit on as soon as you arrive back at the house, that by
the time you unpack your car and get your boots on the racks and parkas and
gloves etc in the dryers the house will be sufficiently warm. Alternatively you
can set the Timer On function before you leave the house. Instructions as
directly above. Half an hour before you expect to arrive is plenty, but I do not
find it any advantage to use Timer on in the afternoon.
Very Cold Mornings
split system has the capacity to heat the house to about 15 degrees warmer than
the outside temperature. This is adequate for the majority of the time. However
there will be the occasional clear morning particularly in July when the
overnight temperature is around zero and first thing in the morning the unit
will initially only be able to heat the house up to about 15 degrees. This may
not be a problem as these cold mornings will usually become beautiful sunny
days. Most guests are going to get dressed in their warm ski gear, have a quick
breakfast and be up at Falls Creek skiing before 9 am. If you need higher
temperatures on one of these very cold mornings, turn off the split system, turn
on the convection heater for half an hour and then turn off the convection
heater and turn on the split system again. Do not turn on both heaters at the
same time as their thermostats will fight one another. Do not increase the
temperature setting on the remote when the room is cold due to low temperatures
outside, as it will only upset your comfort settings for the evening.
heaters are programmed to maintain a comfortable temperature for sleeping with
adequate blankets. The aim is to avoid overheating and dehydration which can
especially be a problem for guests engaged in active altitude activities such as
skiing. On the other hand the temperature is set to avoid a cold room so guests
can get dressed of a morning or get up during the night without being cold. The
bedroom temperatures are set to the recommended 17-18 degrees Celsius.
system is an inverter unit which tries to maintain an even temperature with a
low stream of heat rather than switch on and off. However if you are using
heating when the outside temperature is mild the unit may go
above your set temperature
before switching off.
facing picture windows in the lounge and kitchen/dinning area are double glazed.
Even if there is only occasional sunshine during the day in winter it is
recommended to keep the curtains (Pull cord on right) and shutters open on these
windows even if you are away from the house. This will allow the warm sunshine
into the house. It is recommended to draw the blinds on other windows when away
from the house in winter to keep the warmth in.
During summer daytime it is suggested that bedroom blinds be drawn and bedroom doors be
kept closed to maintain a cool temperature in the living areas of the house.
instructions above as to how to operate the split system controls. We suggest
that you initially set the temperature at 23°. If you set the temperature too
low and then increase it, the unit may automatically switch to heating mode
which can be unpleasant. On hot days you will find it more comfortable with the
ceiling fans operating with or without the air-conditioner. If it it gets too cool
switch off the air-conditioner or increase the set temperature but leave the
facing windows are shaded from the sun, however to help keep the house at a
comfortable temperature, it is recommended that the north facing curtains (pull
cord on right) and shutters be at least partially closed on hot days, and that
all curtains and shutters be fully closed when away from the house on hot days.
This is an alpine
area and it is normal in summer for the temperature to drop rapidly once the sun
drops below the mountains. We suggest the following approach to get maximum
comfort with the assistance of the ceiling fans. The large sliding windows in
the bedrooms and the lounge have an adjustable screw hinged security rod to
restrict full opening of the window when the house is vacant. This rod can be
swung up to allow further opening of the window and will return to the security
position when the window is closed. In the dinning / kitchen area there is an
inside / outdoor thermometer. After very hot days we suggest the following
procedure of an evening;
When the outside
temperature drops below 22 degrees (when the air-conditioning has been
operating) or below the inside the temperature with no air-conditioning, then
open the windows in the bedrooms in use about half way with blinds up and the
bedroom doors open.
When the outside
temperature is below the inside temperature, open the lounge window about half
way and open the sliding door to the sun deck with the fly wire door closed and
switch off the air conditioner and leave the ceiling fan on.
When retiring for
the evening, close the sliding door and slide the windows until the security rod
falls into place for piece of mind, and operate the ceiling fans in the bedrooms
Roof Space Exhaust
A system has been installed to expel hot air from the roof space when
the weather is particularly hot. This system will slow down how fast the house
heats up on very hot days particularly the bedrooms. If you expect very hot
days, mid 20's and above we suggest you switch on the exhaust. Switch on wall
opposite the front door. The unit is located above the third bedroom and can
make a sound similar to a ducted system. Normally of an evening when the
temperature falls it will stop and restart the next day when the temperature
rises. If it is disturbing of an evening switch off. When you leave or when the
very hot weather has ceased please switch the system off.
indoor unit does not beep when you change selections on the wall remote, likely
cause is week batteries in the remote. It the unit does not start also check
that the power is not switched off outside next to the outdoor unit or the
circuit breaker in fuse box opposite the front door is not off. If unit is
heating higher, or cooling lower than your set temp, adjust the set temp. If the
unit is switching between heating and cooling on mild days, change mode from
Auto to heat or cool.
electric convection space heater has been retained as temporary emergency backup
so guests are not without adequate heating. Don't operate both units together as
you may have one heating and the other cooling. The split system is much faster
and more powerful than the bedroom heaters.

Two cots are provided. Choose the one which best suits your child. There
is an older style raised wooden folding cot with a medium thickness mattress.
This is straight forward to assemble. Make sure that it is securely locked so
that your child cannot open any folding components. There is a modern floor
level collapsible fabric cot. This cot is designed
to use a thin mattress, and is suitable for infants under 13.6kg and 86.4cm.. When assembling this cot
try and pull up and
lock the four sides sharply before pushing down the centre. If one or more of
the side top rails do not lock, try pulling the centre up, and then pull the side up
again, and insert the
mattress. To fold the cot remove the mattress and raise the centre of the base.
Make sure the centre is in a high position and release the four sides one at a
time by locating and pressing the leaver under the fabric beneath the centre of
the top rails. Lift the lever up do not push the rail down. The rail will drop
naturally once the leaver is correctly released. If the rails do not release
lift the centre base higher. Make sure both ends of each side rail are released,
often only one end will release and you need to squeeze again.
4 to 6 conveniently located vacant power points in each bedroom and another
dozen vacant power points in the lounge kitchen area. A total of 36 vacant
points excluding bathroom and laundry area. You should be able to charge your
laptop, mobile phone, MP3, head cam, GPS etc without the need to keep swapping

CLEANING AND SUPPLIES
Cleaning and other supplies
are under the kitchen sink, overhead cupboard to right of microwave, in bathroom
and under laundry trough. Cleaning equipment is in tall kitchen cupboard and
equipment room. Blankets stored in wardrobes and large bed heads. If the vacuum
stops working it is mostly because it has overheated due to the dust canister or
filter box beneath it being full or clogged. If you clean these and let the unit
cool then it is almost certain to start vacuuming like a storm again. It is best
to check these before you start.
PROBLEMS AND MAINTENANCE
any maintenance problems to the manager as soon as possible to enable repairs to
be effected at the earliest opportunity.
Double glazing has been installed in the north facing windows of the lounge and
the kitchen/dinning area for your comfort and convenience. In winter you can
leave the curtains open to get the benefit of any sunshine without loosing heat.
In summer heat transference through the windows is reduced, but you should close
the blinds when absent from the house to reduce the radiant heat build up.
