Energy Efficiency in Hotels

Here are some quick tips for energy efficiency in Hotels

1. Use low-energy lighting. Replace tungsten GLS lamps and T12 fluorescent tubes with much more energy efficient items such as T5 tubes or compact fluorescent or LED lamps. These could help you reduce the electricity you consume for lighting by up to 80%. Furthermore, some of the newer bulb types last more than eight times longer than tungsten GLS lamps, and, as they produce less heat, they will put less strain on the cooling required from your air conditioning system

2. Defrost fridges regularly; check the seals on cold rooms and fridges; and keep condensers and evaporators clean

3. Keep fridge doors closed as much as possible

4. Avoid operating the heating and cooling systems simultaneously. This can be a common problem in hotels.

5. Ensure good control of your heating system. Use timer switches and thermostatic radiator valves, and check that thermostats are unaffected by draughts, sunlight, radiators and fireplaces
