How anti-sweat control installation can raise commercial building energy efficiency
Creating greater energy efficiency for commercial buildings can be a daunting task for grocery store and convenience store owners. One reason for this is there are so many options to choose from that could lead to energy savings. For instance, you could install variable speed motors in your commercial refrigeration systems or upgrade to LED lighting. However, installing anti-sweat controls can lead to significant kilowatt savings in your store.
Anti-sweat systems are located in the glass and door frames of low temperature refrigerated cases. Their primary duty is to ensure the door glass doesn’t fog up since this would make it harder for customers to see your products. Anti-sweat systems are also designed to prevent condensation that can drip off door and create hazardous puddles on the floor. However, one major drawback of many anti-sweat systems is they run constantly, even when they aren’t needed, and this means they’re wasting energy.
Think about it this way. Running many anti-sweat systems is similar to running the motor of your car 24/7. It’s just a waste of gas if you aren’t actually driving it. However, anti-sweat controls from Energy Optimization help anti-sweat systems turn off when they aren’t needed. This ability can lead to benefits such as:
- Allowing system to keep condensation off doors and floors
- Helps products remain visible to customers
- Decreases energy usage
- Reduces energy costs
If these benefits sound good to you, Energy Optimization is ready to help you increase the energy efficiency of your commercial building with anti-sweat controls and may even lead to utility rebates. To find out if anti-sweat controls are a good fit for your building, there’s only one initial step you’ll need to take.
