King of Prussia Hotel – A Pioneer in Environmentally Friendly Enhancements

King of Prussia – The Crowne Plaza Valley Forge has installed one of the most sophisticated Energy Management Systems on the market. This system controls the HVAC units for all of the guest rooms, as well as portions of the common areas.
Feb. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- The hotel management team strives to maximize the guest experience by creating a feeling of home, while still managing reduction of energy consumption.  This new “green” system achieves both objectives by controlling the energy consumption of all occupied and unoccupied rooms while maintaining a very comfortable guest room environment. When a room is vacant, the system will adjust the room temperature to a set point that management selects as seasonally appropriate; when a room is occupied but the guest is not in the room, the system will automatically make a minor temperature adjustment as selected by management.  This is achieved using state-of-the-art motion and door sensors working in conjunction with digital thermostats to control the heating and air-conditioning temperature reductions only when the guest is not in the room.

Jose Colon, Chief Engineer shares; “We are proud to invest in environmentally friendly initiatives and have plans to further enhance our efficiencies by deploying additional technologies in the near future with a Green Engage program.  Our Green Engage Community will continuously seek improvements to reduce our carbon footprint while maximizing the guest experience, which is our ultimate goal.”
