Romantic surrounding in Lapland multiplied by comfort of Electric Heating.

Thursday, August 20, 2020

Opened on the 1st of November 2019, Northern Lights village in Levi, Finland, offers immersive arctic experience in Lapland.

40 igloos - Aurora cabins – are located in the wintry forest. They are glass-roofed so that guests can wrap up in a blanket and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Milky Way, the North star and the Northern lights.
The place is amazing! The cabins are of nifty design and always warm while the lasers on the glass roof work to clear any fresh snow in minutes and Electric Heating system managed by the remote control provides ultimate comfort.

Solution:

Aurora cabins – 16 m² each - are equipped with Floor Heating based on EFCI solution by Danfoss.
It is an energy-efficient system providing up to 30% of extra energy saving due to the integrated thermal insulation. EFCI Insulation plates are covered with aluminum and have readymade groves for easy and fast installation of ECflex heating cables.
The full covering aluminum effect ensures faster reaction time and an even heat distribution on the floor surface.

ECflex 10T heating cables are installed in groves of EFCI Insulation plates. It is designed specifically for dry installation under wooden covering. The installed power of each system comes to 1600 W. Cabins are remotely controlled by DEVIweb™, a web control of ECtemp Smarts acting as multi-functional thermostats. Each cabin is set up as a separate location with installed thermostats and is added to the control system.

Result:

With new Electric Floor Heating system, administrators of Northern Lights village may easily manage heating in each igloo increasing comfort and satisfaction of their guests. They use an account to activate Floor Heating system with specific schedule when necessary and to deactivate it when no guests are staying. This ensures energy saving in average 30%.

Levi village in Lapland is the northernmost region of Europe where Electric Floor Heating is installed providing guests with a good mix of outdoor freshness and indoor comfort.
