Yotel New York Attains LEED Gold Status

Sep 10, 2012

YOTEL New York has earned LEED Gold certification for its sustainable initiatives:

1. High efficiency lighting, which includes LED lamps that shine as bright as halogen lamps using a fraction of the energy.
2. A heat recovery system that captures the heat and humidity from the exhaust air and transfers it to the supply in winter and vice versa in the summer. This ensures that all the energy invested in tempering the ventilation air is not lost from the building.
3. A rainwater collection system that captures water, which is then used to irrigate the landscaped terrace. This strategy not only conserves drinking water for potable needs, but also reduces storm water runoff from the site.
4. Occupancy sensors in each cabin automatically turn on the lights to greet guests when they walk in the door and turn them off when guests leave. The occupancy sensors also scale back the heating and air conditioning when the room is vacant for an extended period of time.
5. Renewable energy certificates, which equal to 35 percent of the building's total predicted energy use for two years, support the generation of wind and solar power.
6. Building finishes were hand selected in part for their indoor air quality features.
7. Before opening, YOTEL tested the air quality of a sample set of rooms and amenity spaces to confirm all of their indoor air quality goals had been achieved.
