Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption: Why You Should be a Fan of Energy Efficient Fan Motors
Commercial refrigeration system energy consumption is high for the businesses that must use these systems, and these high consumption rates mean high energy costs for the same businesses. With more than 20 years in the refrigeration systems industry, CoolSys Energy Solutions is an excellent choice to help you find ways to reduce your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption and your high energy bills. One of the best investments that you can make to accomplish these two goals is to allow CoolSys to install Electronically Commutated Motors (ECM’s) to replace your existing fan motors.
High Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption
Brushed direct current motors were traditionally used on refrigeration fans, and these motors are one of the biggest culprits of your business’s high commercial refrigeration system energy consumption. They contribute to these high consumption rates for several reasons. One reason is because they have a high number of mechanical components, and this raises the energy consumption of the commercial refrigeration system by:
- Creating lots of friction in the form of heat that reduces fan efficiency
- Consuming more energy due to lower fan efficiency
- Requiring more frequent maintenance due to more mechanical parts
- Needing more frequent replacement
Based on these factors, it is clear that brushed direct current motors are definitely not the best choice for you if you want to reduce your commercial refrigeration energy consumption or your energy costs.
Lower Your Commercial Refrigeration System Energy Consumption with Electronically Controlled Motors
In contrast to brushed direct current fan motors, electronically controlled fan motors have a wide variety of benefits that combine to slash your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption. These benefits include:
- Increased cooling system effectiveness by 20-25% due to less heat generated by the motor
- Reduced energy usage by fan motor by 30-50%
- Lower energy costs means system pays for itself quickly
- Lack of mechanical parts means lower maintenance and replacement costs for motor
By allowing CoolSys Energy Solutions to install electronically controlled fan motors today, you can go a long way toward cutting your commercial refrigeration system energy consumption and operating costs.
