      Hotel heating systems
      • Regularly service boilers to retain efficiency and consider replacing units over 15 years old

      • Check all your pipework is well insulated

      • Don’t use extra electric heaters, which are very expensive to run

      • Encourage staff to use window blinds to retain heat in winter and keep it down in summer

      • Install a draught lobby at the main entrance to reduce heating costs

      Properly insulate your roof – a building loses 22% of its heat through its roof

      Water management in hotels
      • Check your water temperature is at 60°C – this keeps water hot and kills bacteria

      • Spray water taps use less water than conventional faucets

      • Fix leaking taps as quickly as possible

      If you have a heated indoor swimming pool, keep it covered when not in use.

      • Only turn on air conditioning when the temperature is over 24°C

      • Don’t waste energy by heating and cooling areas at the same time

      • Consider turning down heating before opening windows

      Regular air-conditioning services help keep your system running efficiently
