The critical importance of a hotel’s HVAC system cannot be overstated. Sometimes a hotel is a welcome respite for the weary driver who’s put in hundreds of miles between destinations, sometimes it’s a strategy room for the purpose-minded traveling executive, sometimes it’s a place for a couple to reconnect with one another, sometimes it’s a place where families create lasting memories. The hotel can either be a means to an end on the way to a destination, or the destination itself. In any case, the experience occupants can have sour quickly if they can get comfortable because they’re freezing, sweating or coughing because of the hotel’s faulty HVAC system.

Importance of Quality HVAC Systems in Your New Jersey Hotel

Data from the New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s office indicates that tourism in the state hit record-breaking numbers in 2018. Visitors from all over the country and the world were flocking to New Jersey to experience the state’s unmatched parks, beaches, restaurants, cultural attractions, night life and everything else it had to offer. Nearly each and every one of them had their pick of tens of thousands of hotels in which to stay, and the slightest variable had hotels competing for market share.

In the age of Yelp!, Google, TripAdvisor and multiple other internet review sites, your hotel simply can’t afford to have its rooms too cold, too hot, smelling bad or keeping occupants up all night with a banging and clanging of the HVAC system. Comfort and, let’s face it, the ability to breathe, is a critical part of enjoying your travel experience, and the last thing you need is to get negative reviews because of foolish and short-sighted HVAC repair, maintenance or installation issues. Simply put, although you never really think about it, your hotel’s HVAC system could actually make or break your establishment’s prospects of long-term growth.

It’s also a reality that many, if not most, hotels in New Jersey are running on what can charitably be described as “modest” budgets, specifically those who are independently owned. A faulty or inefficient HVAC system can very easily send your monthly energy costs skyrocketing, leaving you in the red, quarter after quarter for years. Universal Mechanical Group wants to help keep your hotel attract and maintain more and more customers through all types of NJ weather, hot or cold.

Hotels operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year. It’s not like HVAC output for the household or even any other type of business. This means their HVAC systems are running constantly, through all seasons. Without proper HVAC maintenance and repair, there’s a real and genuine risk of your system aging rapidly and dying before its time. The average HVAC system lasts between 15-20 years, along the way some of the factors that determine its longevity include how often its maintained and cleaned; how soon repair takes place after the discovery of an issue, and a variety of others.

  • Uneven Hot and Cold Air Distribution
  • Frozen Condensers or Coils
  • Clicking on and off
