Heating a guest house: choosing an Inexpensive and efficient system

The comfort of the guests, the load in the low season and the profit of the hotel complex depend on how the heating of the guest house is organized. To implement the optimal solution, it is important to choose a modern and sufficiently powerful heater and minimize the cost of its use.
If the guest house is used in the winter, you can not do without creating full-fledged heating. Consider the most popular options with their advantages and disadvantages:

  1. Fireplace/stove heating.
Heating a guest house: choosing an inexpensive and efficient system

Creates a cozy atmosphere that further attracts guests. But fireplace heating does not allow you to evenly warm the whole house: it will be cold in remote rooms. It requires constant maintenance (chimney cleaning) and high fuel consumption. Conclusion: an expensive solution to design and implement, for comfortable use it is necessary to use additional heaters.

  1. Water heating.

The most obvious, but not the most convenient option for a guest house. If you install your own boiler in each house, this requires high costs (purchase of equipment, development of technical documentation, coordination with regulatory authorities). The creation of a common boiler house for the entire hotel complex is difficult due to the large territory: the coolant will cool down during transportation from the boiler house to the houses, as a result, it will be cool in them. Conclusion: an expensive and inefficient solution.

  1. Autonomous air heating.

An independent heater is installed in each guest house, which blows warm air into the room and evenly distributes heat. Allows you to maintain a consistently high temperature, works almost silently, without disturbing the rest of the guests. It is easy to choose a model for servicing an object of any area. Conclusion: a solution that is easy to design and implement, each guest house is serviced separately, which makes it possible not to heat the object when it is not needed, without prejudice to other hotel infrastructure facilities.

Comparison of modern heaters

If the house has centralized heating, but its additional heating is required, the best solution would be to purchase a heater for the guest house. Let’s compare modern offers and their possibilities.

The least attractive solution is the use of a “warm floor” system. And the most convenient type of heater for a guest house: fan heaters and air solar collectors.

Inexpensive heating systems for guest (hotel) houses

Heat guns and solar collectors work on the same principle, but if the “gun” needs electricity (or diesel), then solar appliances use free solar energy. This is the key advantage of the equipment, thanks to which it is actively used in the tourism sector around the world.
The devices are also attractive due to their environmental friendliness: the hotel can position itself as an ecotourism object. In addition, the equipment does not require a connection to the mains, there is no need to coordinate the installation with the fire department.

Results

To create complex heating and additional heating of guest houses, various equipment is used. Fan heaters and solar collectors are the most popular: they are safe, easy to maintain, quickly pay for themselves and do not require project documentation for installation.
In addition, solar heating of a guest house is effective for rooms of various sizes, does not require an electrical connection, and does not create fire hazards.
