I love travelling and seeing new places.
This past summer I went out west and explored the mountains and many historical monuments.
I was in my glory taking pictures. The weather there was unpredictable. It would be warmer near lower elevation and then once we went up to higher elevation it would be thirty degrees and snowing! It was bizarre but pretty cool. I wouldn’t mind visiting out west again and exploring more. However I would not stay at the same hotel again. The hotel that I stayed at was quite comfortable and their services were great. Unfortunately the air conditioning unit in the room was so loud at night. There were some nights where I couldn’t sleep because the noise was bothering me. I wanted to research as to why this particular unit was so loud. According to my research it stated that the individual packaged unit that is mounted near the window are one of the cheaper options that hotels choose. Because these units are so cheap, the maintenance in them are very high. Almost all hotels, except for hotels with an actual HVAC system, house PTAC’s (Portable Terminal Air Conditioner). Even though its cost efficient for hotels to go with a PTAC because it’s cheaper from the start, in the long run hotels will spend more money on repairing and replacing. If a HVAC system is used some energy can be saved. The next time I book my room out west, I will ask the front desk what kind of air conditioning unit that they use, and pay a bit extra to sleep better at night.
