Auto cleaning ducts a big air conditioning money saver for hotels
Air conditioning has become the norm in most new and refurbished hotels. Today’s systems keep guests cool during summer – and additionally provide cost-efficient heating during winter periods. Daikin heat pumps use renewable energy to do this, cutting hotel operating costs. And there’s also a positive impact on indoor aesthetics.
As a leading manufacturer of heat pump systems, Daikin is at the forefront of technology. Far from concentrating solely on temperature control, its engineers and designers are constantly working to improve the ‘total solutions’ for key market sectors such as the hotel industry, offering cooling, heating, hot water, ventilation and refrigeration with a single point of contact.
“We chose the Daikin solution for heating and cooling because it included the auto cleaning duct on the indoor units.”
- David Donoghue, Group Maintenance Manager
The latest control innovation is the stylish ‘Madoka’, a wall-mounted intuitive touch button controller enabling guests to adjust room temperatures for greater comfort. Its Bluetooth connection gives maintenance staff access to all other system settings. With a choice of white, black or silver housings, Madoka fits any hotel interior design.
Revolutionising air conditioning
Another recent innovation is the auto cleaning duct – an accessory that attaches to a Daikin ducted unit – typically in a hotel bedroom ceiling – and automatically cleans the filter.
The auto cleaning duct avoids accumulation of dust on the filter – which would otherwise affect the efficiency of the unit and increase operating costs. In fact, the accessory is calculated to cut operating costs by 20%. The attachment cleans the filter periodically and stores the dust in a dust box which can be emptied by housekeeping staff with a vacuum cleaner.
“The big benefits are that we get greater efficiency from the systems and we can deploy our maintenance team more efficiently.”
