Article Summary: 

The hospitality industry has increased safety protocols for the health and well-being of guests and employees. However, 74% of North Americans surveyed were still anxious about poor indoor air quality when entering buildings, indicating more needs to be done for all occupants to feel safe and comfortable. Mechanical systems play a crucial role in achieving this goal. Air purifiers can improve indoor air quality by capturing airborne contaminants, while Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) provides simultaneous zone-controlled heating and cooling, making it one of the most beneficial solutions for the hospitality industry. Boilers remain a popular method of heating larger buildings, and make-up air units contribute to guest comfort while also being energy efficient. Overall, mechanical systems contribute significantly to creating a comfortable and safe environment in hospitality settings.
