My children own and operate a small hotel which include fifteen separate units.
- Their hotel is the only one in the area, and so most of the rooms are usually booked.
The abrasion on the rooms is tremendous. The upkeep on the hotel can be described as a constant challenge. There seems to always be something in need of restoration or updating. Between the pipes, electric, HVAC and furnishings, you can find constant damage and maintenance needed. Our guests are not careful and cause many damage. Every member of my loved ones family has needed to learn the essential skills of a handyman. We’ve managed clogged drains, overflowing tubs, broken fuses, burns in the ground and broken windows. We’ve recently undertaken a project to switch the entire HVAC system within the hotel. The old units were no longer able to meet the requirements of severe weather, and the control knobs were broken or not working properly. Because these HVAC units were located on the floor, they often got kicked, damaged, or even coffee spilled around them. We are investing a ductless heat pump system which will include two outdoor compressors linked to indoor air handlers in every single room. The indoor air handlers tend to be streamlined, attracted and able to remain mounted up high on the wall. The units operate wonderfully energy efficient, along with combine both heating and cooling capacity. A wireless remote will allow the guests to manage temperature, switch from heating to help cooling, and adjust fan pace. Because of the manufacturer’s warranty and superior energy efficiency, I am hoping the ductless HVAC units will cost them far less to operate and maintain.
