Three Keys to Successful Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption
Whether you’re a grocery store, pharmacy, restaurant, or convenience store, your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption most likely takes up much of the largest portion of your operating costs. This makes paying attention to your equipment’s energy consumption a vital factor in your overall success. The good thing is there are always ways for you to improve if you haven’t already, ways to adjust your equipment to make it more efficient, and lower costs without lowering the performance. Here are three keys to saving money by being aware of your commercial refrigeration system’s energy consumption:
When purchasing a commercial refrigeration system, pay attention to the insulation
As you know, insulation is what keeps the warmer, outside air from penetrating into the cooler air of your system, helping with performance and maintaining the quality of the products inside. To improve commercial refrigeration system energy consumption, a commercial refrigeration system must be built with the proper insulation. Ask the manufacturer about the insulation installation process, make sure that what they use is not only safe for the environment and your products but also performs at a superior level.
Energy efficient components are key to commercial refrigeration system energy consumption
Everything from the lights to the motors can help improve the efficiency of your commercial refrigeration system. Make sure you purchase a unit that has electronic motors and temperature controls. By having this, your commercial refrigeration system will be more accurate when it comes to monitoring temperature and using energy only when needed. If your system is a display unit, showcasing what is inside, you don’t have to sacrifice the aesthetics of it when you choose a more energy efficient light supply. Select LED lights, which use minimal energy and have a much longer lifespan, and you’ll find your display illuminates better than ever.
Giving your equipment room to breathe helps your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption
What surrounds your commercial refrigeration system matters. Whether it’s out in a store for public use, or back in the kitchen of your restaurant, where you put it can have a huge impact on your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption. Make sure that the system has its own space, it’s not pushed all the way up against a wall and isn’t being overcrowded by surrounding materials. This will help with ventilation and help it avoid having to overwork in order to get the right amount of airflow in and out of it. Make sure that the system is also surrounded by like machines, put equipment that is meant to stay cool next to each other, and equipment that conducts heats next to each other, in order to prevent either from overcompensating.
