Hotels ,Motels Load Types
Ideally each room served by an HVAC unit should be able to be ventilated, cooled, heated, or dehumidified independently of any other room. If not, air conditioning for each room will be compromised
Typically, the space is not occupied at all times. For adequate flexibility, each unit’s ventilation and cooling should be able to be shut off (except when humidity control is required), and its heating to be shut off or turned down.
Concentrations of lighting and occupancy are typically low; activity is generally sedentary or light. Occupancy is transient in ith greater use of bedrooms at night
Kitchens, whether integrated with or separate from residential quarters, have the potential for high appliance loads, odor generation, and large exhaust requirements.
Rooms generally have an exterior exposure, kitchens, toilets, and dressing rooms may not. The building as a whole usually has multiple exposures, as may many individual dwelling units.
Toilet, washing, and bathing facilities are almost always incorporated in the dwelling units. Exhaust air is usually incorporated in each toilet area.
The building has a relatively high hot water demand, generally for periods of an hour or two, several times a day. This demand can vary from a fairly moderate and consistent daily load profile in a senior citizens building to sharp, unusually high peaks at about 6:00 P.M. in dormitories. Chapter 48 includes details on service water heating.
Load characteristics of rooms, dwelling units, and buildings can be well defined with little need to anticipate future changes to the design loads, other than the addition of a service such as cooling that may not have been incorporated originally.
The prevalence of shifting, transient interior loads and exterior exposures with glass results in high diversity factors; the longhour
usage results in fairly high load factors
