From the kitchen where the chef prepares dishes to the reception where the concierge greets guestshotels have a range of different environments, but they are united by the need to ensure optimal comfort for all those who spend time in them. Clivet group offer specialised systems for any application and climate. 

Achieving living comfort must be a fundamental goal when designing an air conditioning system. Taking key factors into account, such as thermo-hygrometric wellbeing (that feeling where people are comfortable and feel neither hot nor cold), acoustic wellbeing and indoor air quality.

What are the key elements of a good air-conditioning system?

Attention must be paid to its energy efficiency, as the various areas of the facility and the bedrooms have different intermittent use and heat loads.

Other variables that impact on the management of the system concern the energy consumed and the costs for its operation, routine and possible extraordinary maintenance.

Many hotels also offer additional services such as a gym, swimming pool and a wellness centre and each of these environments has different temperatures, humidity and air renewal requirements, so the system must be able to fulfil these demands.

You must consider the period in which the system is in operation, for example a facility that’s only open in summer will only need a system for these months, whereas a hotel that is open all year will also need a solution that offers optimal heating performance for the colder months.

What are the most common systems for air conditioning in hotels?

We can recommend three system solutions suited to hotel requirements: hydronic systems, VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) systems and WLHP (Water Loop Heat Pump) systems. All three systems must be combined with an air handling unit that continuously supplies clean, filtered air.

Packaged: the solution for hotels designed by Clivet

This system was designed by Clivet to ensure the best air conditioning for hospitality facilities, which have areas with different requirements. This makes it possible to lower investment and operating costs, reduce overall space requirements and achieve perfect architectural integration of the systems. This is thanks to a system featuring a packaged unit, usually installed on the building’s roof, which allows cooling and heating energy to be produced only when and where it is needed, as well as providing the right air renewal while also ensuring energy recovery.

NEW! EUROVENT Rooftop certification 100-200 kW upgrade

Clivet communicates the achievement of an important goal: the extension of Eurovent certification for Rooftop family up to 200 kW.

As a confirmation of quality and efficiency, Eurovent certification, already available for nominal capacities up to 100 kW, is now extended to all the sizes up to 200 kW which were tested in the approved laboratories by the certification body (test rooms 7.1 and 7.2) in the new Clivet Innovation Centre.
