Ventilation is the process of removing stale indoor air from your indoor space and supplying fresh outdoor air into your room. Maintaining proper ventilation is vital in the hospitality industry for a variety of reasons. It ensures the safe preparation and storage of food and beverages. It also creates a good indoor environment for your staff and patrons. In most cases, ventilation systems come as part of the HVAC system. Therefore, people tend to overlook its importance, sometimes to a fault. To prevent this casual outlook on ventilation systems, you have to perform frequent risk assessments to ensure those responsible for the system perform their duty to care for the ventilation system and protect workers and customers. They should also perform preventive ventilation maintenance during the annual HVAC tune-ups to lower potential risks of poor ventilation. During the tune-up, replace any defective extraction fans and verify that your HVAC system supplies as much outside air as possible. The more outdoor air is supplied to your indoor space, the cleaner your indoor air will be. In addition to this, a good ventilation system will remove pollutants, bacteria, unpleasant odors, and moisture, leaving your customers feeling rejuvenated and inclined to stay longer. It will also lower the condensation rate in your indoor space. Condensation may lead to mold and rotten surfaces, which is something you’d want to avoid, especially in a hotel building. Damp conditions also create a conducive environment for allergens to thrive and grow, resulting in health issues such as allergic reactions as well as respiratory issues. Proper airflow in your hospitality building will also reduce temperatures, which will result in reduced energy bills in the long run. Your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain your desired temperature levels.
