How to Maximize Energy Optimization in your Grocery Refrigeration System
It’s easy to forget about your grocery refrigeration’s energy optimization, especially when it all seems to be running the way it should be. When the food you’re storing in there remains fresh and cold, you probably aren’t thinking about the lights, fans or heaters, all which impact your grocery store’s costs along with the food. It’s time to take notice, and to start lowering your energy usage to minimize costs.
At CoolSys Energy Solutions we help grocery store owners/managers do just that. We offer a free energy audit to be able to show you how you can improve you grocery refrigeration energy optimization. Here a few directive we may recommend that you can use to maximize your commercial refrigeration system’s energy optimization:
Install LED occupancy sensors
There’s no point to the lights being on when there isn’t anyone around the system, right? So install LED occupancy sensors that only allow lights to turn on when a customer begins to walk up the refrigeration aisle or when they open the door to retrieve products. They can also be controlled to stay on until a certain moment or for a certain amount of time.
Control evaporator fan motor speeds
When your commercial refrigeration system is low on inventory, slow down the fans to maximize grocery refrigeration energy optimization. This helps preserve energy for when it is restocked without wasting it and it will help prolong the system’s lifespan.
Always check gaskets for grocery refrigeration energy optimization
The small rubber seals within the commercial refrigeration system, otherwise known as gaskets, are what keep air from escaping, which would cause the system to overwork in order to compensate for the leak, and potentially cause a costly repair and hefty energy bill. To avoid this, consistently check that there are no cracks or breaks in the gaskets.
Schedule maintenance checks with a technician.
Maximize your grocery refrigeration energy optimization by working with a commercial refrigeration professional to conduct regularly scheduled maintenance checks.
