Hotels operate 24 hours per day, hosting guests and offering various services and amenities. Guest rooms, restaurants, lounges and swimming pools are often found in most hotels these days. Laundries and kitchens are usually located on-site also. The variety of services and amenities provided and the need to operate around the clock mean that hotels present plentiful opportunities for energy savings. Here we will look at some useful tips on how people in the hotel industry can make energy savings through taking simple actions and steps. Lighting Saving Tips Replace light bulbs with more eco-friendly and efficient ones and use dimmable lights in guest rooms. » Use natural daylight, which has been proven to enhance a hotel's indoor environment, while reducing energy use and peak demand. Where possible, any lighting renovation should start by using daylighting as much as possible and reducing electric lighting accordingly. CERTIFIED » Update lighting with certified CFL and LED bulbs. » Installation of occupancy sensors. Occupancy sensors can detect the motion of room occupants, switching off lights in unoccupied areas and turning them back on when movement is detected. Occupancy sensors save energy and help to reduce maintenance costs. Heating & Cooling Tips » Sync your energy management system (EMS), reservation system and automated check-out system together to keep an unsold room ventilated but with minimal heating or cooling. A sold room can be heated or cooled to a comfortable temperature an hour before a guest's scheduled arrival. Once the guests arrive in the room, they can then change the temperature as required until they check out. Install double glaze windows and seal cracks around windows and doors. » Regularly check and change your air filter. Ensure any extractors aren't removing too much heat - i.e. if they're located near radiators. » Tune up your HVAC equipment yearly. Just like a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort. » During periods of low occupancy, shut down entire wings or floors and reduce lighting and HVAC systems in these areas. SHUT DOWN » Assign guests to adjoining rooms to allow the heating and cooling of occupied rooms to act as an insulator. Around the kitchen » Do not over fill fridges / freezers and ensure they're set at the correct temperature. Defrost them regularly to prevent ice build-up, clean external condensers, repair seals and relocate fridges if they're near direct heat. » Open and closure procedures: Ensure that staff complete a checklist to turn everything off at closing time. Use a checklist at opening to ensure equipment is turned on just in time for use. Another way to reduce business energy costs is to switch supplier.
