A recent article circulated to the HVAC trade press by Lennox looks at the various ways a quality HVAC system can improve increase the business enjoyed by your restaurant customers.
According to the article, a pleasant dining environment not only brings patrons in the door, but also helps raise employee morale, which may, in turn, increase the quality of food, customer service and overall employee satisfaction, all of which ultimately generate more sales, says Lennox.
By collaborating with a quality HVAC manufacturer, restaurant owners can create a system that helps improve the indoor environment of an establishment for both customers and employees. There are a range of products designed specifically to improve the indoor environment by moderating temperature and humidity levels. Many of these solutions even help reduce energy expenses.
To improve your restaurant’s environment, look for these types of equipment:
Rooftop units featuring smart dehumidification systems that can independently control temperature and humidity levels. Make sure the dehumidification system initiates operation based on actual humidity levels and not just the temperature in the restaurant.
Rooftop units with multiple stages of heating and cooling operation that can help eliminate temperature swings. The best systems can provide up to four stages of both heating and cooling for equipment up to 30 tons.
Rooftop units with Demand Control Ventilation — a Lennox product — that can modulate the fresh air intake and match the actual needs of the building. This not only helps provide enough fresh outdoor air, but also helps limit energy expenses versus a standard damper that brings in a set amount of outdoor air.
HVAC control systems with easy-to-use interfaces that make setting and changing temperature requirements simple and convenient. Even the best, most powerful control systems will not help meet the necessary comfort requirements if they are difficult for the restaurant manager to operate.
