Save Money on Your Hotel’s Heating Bills

5 Simple Ways to Save Money on Your Hotel’s Heating Bills

Whether you’re running a small city boutique or a sprawling beachside resort, there’s one thing you always need to keep on top of: utility costs. It’s all too easy for water and lighting bills to creep up unnoticed, forcing you to spend all your hard-earned profits just to keep the lights on.

Heating, in particular, is one of the biggest costs to watch out for when the colder weather sets in – but with heating bills as high as they are, figuring out what to do can feel daunting. Thankfully, there are some simple yet effective ways to reduce these costs and free up funds to improve your hotel elsewhere.

The team at Asbury Heating understand the ins and outs of commercial heating systems, having installed and maintained them in countless properties across the South. Below, we share five simple methods you can use to save money on your hotel’s heating bills.

1. Invest in an Energy-Saving Boiler

If your boiler is over a decade old or barely hanging on, replacing it with a modern model is the best way you can slash your heating costs. Modern boilers are far more efficient than older models, which translates to lower operating expenses and smoother operation.

While investing in an energy-efficient model may seem pricey upfront, the long-term savings on your fuel bills will soon offset the initial expense. On top of this, modern boilers usually come with more flexible control schemes, letting you manage your hotel’s heating more effectively. It’s a win-win!

2. Arrange for Regular Boiler Maintenance

Like all machinery, boilers work best when they’re kept in good condition. Scheduling annual maintenance helps keep your boiler operating at peak efficiency, preventing unnecessary energy waste and costly breakdowns. Remember, prevention is always cheaper (and less disruptive) than cure!

3. Take Advantage of Modern Heating Tech

Use technology to take precise control over your heating system! Programmable thermostats let you adjust temperatures based on real-time occupancy and guest preferences – for example, you can schedule lower temperatures during unoccupied periods or when guests are out exploring, and vice versa when they’re back in. This prevents unnecessary energy use and the related costs.

4. Improve Your Hotel’s Insulation

It’s not just about your boiler; the insulation of your hotel plays a big role in determining how much heating you’ll need and for how long. By addressing key areas like windows, doors, walls, and roofs, you can significantly reduce heat loss, ease the strain on your heating system, and create a more comfortable environment for your guests.

5. Encourage Guests to Save Energy

Even your guests have a role to play! Help them learn about simple energy-saving practices they can follow during their stay through signs and leaflets. Encourage them to turn off lights, adjust thermostats before leaving their rooms, and avoid excessive use of heating and cooling systems. These small steps can make a big difference in reducing overall energy consumption, while also highlighting your commitment to sustainability.
