Using Energy Efficient Automatic Sliding Glass Door Closers for Hotel Properties

DSC00013Sliding doors are a popular feature in hotels, resorts and rental properties, but can have a major impact on energy usage and costs. When sliding doors are left open on a hot and humid day, energy usage can drastically increase as the air conditioning unit works harder to maintain a cool temperature and reduce the humidity in the property. Because your air conditioning units are worker harder due to open sliding glass doors, they will most likely also have higher maintenance costs and a shorter life overall. Humidity can also create problems in your facility resulting in damage to painted finishes, carpets and other fixtures, leaving property owners with higher maintenance and cleaning costs.

It is impossible to monitor tenant or guest behavior to make sure sliding doors are closed, so many property owners and managers are left with the problem of cooling and heating bills that are much higher than they need to be.

One of the simplest and most cost-effective solutions to the problem is to install automatic sliding glass door closers. The best sliding glass door closers can be used on any kind of sliding door and can be color-matched to coordinate with doors and decors. These devices are unobtrusive and are the perfect way to ensure that the sliding doors throughout your property will always close, thus keeping your energy costs down.

These sliding glass door closers are effective because they will not be damaged if the door is pushed shut, and will not prematurely damage the rollers and track on the patio doors, ensuring long life for your sliding doors. The device enables property owners to retain the value and long life of your sliding doors, while keeping energy usage down.

For commercial property owners who want to lower energy costs as well as making a positive environmental impact, installing automatic sliding glass door closers can be a great energy saving strategy, as the management at Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas discovered. The Resort installed automatic sliding glass door closers on several different types of patio doors throughout their lodge rooms in the spring of 2009. Jan Marquis, Director of Land Maintenance at the property says, “I believe the installation of these units has had a positive impact on lowering our energy usage for our lodge rooms, as it does not allow the guest to leave the doors open while the air conditioners are running.” Marquis also says that the installation of the door closers went smoothly on each type of door, and that the doors all operate well since installation. This simple, property-wide improvement provided a quick solution to concerns of Resort management, and shows guests that the company is energy and environmentally conscious.

For a minimal investment and easy installation, commercial property owners can address a number of potential problems by eliminating the problem of open sliding glass doors. Automatic door closers also add a level of safety for children when there are pools on the property, provide additional security for furnishings and belongings, and reduce unwanted bugs and other pests.
