“Cooking and refrigeration”
Walk-In Cooler Controllers
Almost all coolers and freezers run their fans continuously, even though, on average, full airflow is only required about half of the time. By putting a stop to this, controllers can reduce energy use by as much as 60%. Learn what the options are and if these controls make sense for you.
Refrigerated vending machines are energy hogs and can cost owners over $400 per year. Fortunately, it’s possible to reduce this energy waste by choosing new efficient models or adding controls. This article explains what options are available to you and how to make the best choice.
Ice makers are used in a large number of commercial facilities and use a tremendous amount of energy. Fortunately, there are now a wide range of high-efficiency models available that won’t cost you any more to purchase. Find out what the options are and how to make the right choice.
Evaporator Fan Motors
Commercial refrigerated display cases require enormous amounts of energy to keep their large air volumes cool. According to the US Department of Energy, display case evaporator fan motors alone can account for about 15 percent of a supermarket's total energy costs.
Commercial Kitchen Equipment
Commercial kitchens are intense energy users, consuming as much as three times more energy per square foot than most other types of commercial buildings. Upgrading equipment to be more energy efficient can increase your bottom line while also providing a number of significant non-energy benefits.
