Strategies for an improved hotel environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL OBJECTIVE

STRATEGY

COMMENT

Improved air quality

Ducted primary air in lieu of infiltration or operable windows Add thermal/latent recovery units between toilet exhaust and outside air.
Improved unit air filtration Use mini-pleats in lieu of cleanable/throwaway filters.
Control source content Avoid use of materials with VOCs and contaminants.

Energy conservation

Improved controls Allow setbacks and drift in unoccupied rooms.
Geothermal systems Consider when resource is available.
Energy recovery Use on all air systems.
Capture waste heat from laundries and process equipment.
Passive energy systems Naturally temper outside air.
Natural energy sources Investigate wind, solar, and water power.

Water conservation

Low-water-flow fixtures and fittings Provide automatic operation when possible.
Recycled grey water for non-potable uses Use environmentally responsive treatment processes.
Use HWAT in lieu of hot-water circulation Minimize lengths of uncirculated hot-water pipe.
Store/reuse rain water Do if storage space is available.

Environmental conditions

Individual thermal control Provide as many zones as possible.
Humidity control Provide close tolerance summer and winter control.
Acoustical environment Select quiet equipment.
Control duct/air/pipe/water noise.
Use controls to permit "low-speed" operation.
Air motion Avoid drafts and "dead" spots.
