What Are Hotel Ventilation Systems?
What is hotel ventilation?
Naturally, hotels are responsible for providing its guests high comfort levels.
And ventilation systems are one of the most important components of providing it.
What should be taken into consideration when such systems need to be installed to your establishment?
Indoor Hotel Ventilation
The first thing that comes to mind when hotel ventilation systems are concerned are the heating, cooling and ventilation systems, each of which working to increase the overall comfort level of the guests.
For heating and hot water, systems like radiators and central heating may be utilized.
In large capacity hotels, chiller systems are utilized for cooling while VRF systems and split air conditioners are used in smaller establishments.
In addition to heating and cooling systems, inverter air conditioners and heat recovery devices need to be utilized for ventilation needs.
Indoor Pool Ventilation For Hotels
Another topic of discussion for the proper ventilation of hotels are the indoor pools.
Indoor pools are very suitable environments for the formation of high humidity rates.
The pool water needs to be kept around 28°C (82.4°F). And the formation of humidity will increase in direct proportion to the difference between ambient temperature and water temperature.
Humidity rates over 50% pose a great danger of corrosion to the building frames and other systems important for the integrity of the structure.
At the same time, bacteria that is harmful to human health will reproduce quickly in such high humidity environments.
For this reason, dehumidifying systems should be installed for indoor pools. These systems condense the hot and humid air to cool it first and then reheat and release them to the area with less moisture.
Kitchen Ventilation For Hotels
Hotel ventilation systems should be separated into two different categories of indoor and kitchen ventilation, where intensive cooking processes are made.
The air pollutants such as smoke, oil and odor should be disposed of as soon as possible before they can disturb the indoor air quality. Moreover, the polluted exhaust air shouldn’t be released outside as is and need to be filtered to emission law standards.
Otherwise, air pollution complaints from your surroundings will be inevitable. This is particularly critical for establishments that are located at inner-cities.
Odor And Smoke Control For Hotel Kitchens
Frequently Asked Questions
Hotel ventilation systems should be defined under two different specifications.
Indoor air ventilation, which concerns the comfort of the guests inside.
Exhaust hood ventilation, which concerns getting rid of the dirty air formed during cooking and preventing the dirty exhaust air from affecting the indoor air quality.
Indoor ventilation refers to systems that aims to keep the comfort levels of the guests and the employees of a hotel. In such systems, a lot of equipment dedicated to heating, cooling and ventilation can be found.
Exhaust hood ventilation systems aim to filter and dispose of air pollutants such as smoke, oil and odor formed during cooking processes. These systems start with exhaust hoods and include various ventilation equipment like ductwork, filters and chimneys. The main purpose of these systems are preventing kitchens from affecting indoor and outdoor air quality negatively.
In hotels, a chimney system is required to discharge the exhaust air into the outside environment. Many local authorities require hotels to have chimney systems in order to be able to get a business license. However, Electrostatic Filtration Systems are accepted as an alternative to chimneys by great numbers of local authorities.
No doubt fires are a great problem for hotels and the building they’re located at. There are many reasons for such fires and each need to be evaluated on their own to take proper precautions. However, fires caused by exhaust hoods, ductwork and chimney systems being covered in flammable material can be prevented with our products. Eco-Purge Units filter such pollutants and eliminate conditions under which these sort of fires may start.
Exhaust hood filters come in two different installation forms, internal and external. For external configurations, an outer area such as a yard, roof or a terrace is needed. Internal models can be integrated into exhaust hoods directly.
