Riverdale, NJ (WiredPRNews.com) –Camfil Farr Green Air Filters story: Today’s forward-thinking businesses are looking for ways to operate more efficiently, while being sensitive to the environment. The ultimate goal is to reduce costs while going green and while that’s not an easy task, using the right products will help do the trick. Those products should be designed to use increasingly scarce resources more efficiently.
A leading hospitality company – with 445 hotels nationwide – decided to rethink how it utilized air filters at one of its major properties, a five-star hotel located at one of the nation’s three largest airports. Keeping in mind the vast benefits of clean air solutions — better air, better savings, and a better environment – the hotel industry can offer clean, comfortable air to their customers.
For the hospitality company, the problem was crystal clear: Its hotel was experiencing a high rate of air filter replacement in the heating/cooling units in each room. With filters needing to be changed once per month, in all 700 rooms, the cost of labor mixed with the overall expense and waste wasn’t good for the bottom line. The hotel was also concerned that the air filters weren’t as energy efficient as they could be.
That’s when they contacted Camfil Farr, the world leader in air filtration and clean air solutions, to find out if better results were possible. It tested a Camfil Farr 30/30 filter against the brand it was already using, examining both contaminant loading on the air filters and the length of filter life. After tests in multiple rooms, the results were remarkable.
The Camfil Farr 30/30 air filter lasted five months in actual use conditions – translating into five times as long as the hotel’s existing filters. This meant fewer filters would need to be purchased, lower total cost of ownership for the hotel’s heating and cooling units, and less waste generated. Once the hotel converted all 700 rooms to Camfil Farr’s 30/30 filter, it was able to reduce the number of filters used per year from 8,400 to 1,680.
Just as significant, however, were the energy savings. Camfil Farr’s clean air solutions delivered a result that enabled the hotel to reduce its energy cost per room by 17 percent annually. And that helped the hotel earn the company’s prestigious “Energy Honor Roll.”
But perhaps the biggest benefit the company saw was the boost in air quality. In tests, the hotel quickly discovered that the superior dust holding capacity of the Camfil Farr 3/30 meant higher quality, healthier air in the guest rooms — with far less exposure to pollens and allergens.
