Where are you going on holiday this year? A trip to the sunshine state? A weekend in Paris? Or a city break in cosmopolitan London?
Going on holiday for many is a break to get away from the pressures of work and day-to-day life. Check in to a lovely hotel and be a person of leisure for a week or two.
When we book a getaway at a hotel, we don’t want problems such as rude staff, no free Wi-Fi and rooms not ready on arrival.
In hotels, one of the most common complaints are rooms that are too hot with windows that can’t be opened, warm and stuffy communal areas especially when the weather is very hot outside.
Clearly, poor air quality is undesirable for hotel guests and staff — is air conditioning enough to keep the air fresh and to keep your hotel comfortable?
The reason for poor air quality is lack of fresh air coming in to the building, this in turn leads to the build of pollutants. Possible side effects include:
- eye and throat irritation
Air ventilation systems provide a mixture of air from the outdoors and recirculated air from your building. Outside air is what prevents the build-up of pollutants. When there is little fresh air coming in, this is when this stuffy air starts to seep through and the result is uncomfortable guests and staff feeling groggy, tired and ill. With thousands of guests staying in hotels every week, imagine the exhaled air that is circulating if there isn’t enough fresh air being let into the premises.
With this in mind, bringing fresh air into your building will provide a fresh, comfortable and pleasant place for your guests to stay and staff to work while making sure your air conditioning system is working effectively.
