Refrigeration can be quite an expense for restaurants. Keeping food at a safe temperature requires a lot of energy. Fortunately, there are several ways to reduce energy usage and keep costs down. Here are a few of the ways to safe money on your businesses commercial refrigeration needs.
1 - Maintain your system - be sure to clean the condenser and evaporator coils.
Dirty condenser and evaporator coils can block air flow. This brings down refrigerator efficiency and can lead to a lot more energy being used. This can also lead to more maintenance issues, which will cost time and money in the long run.
2 - Insulate the suction lines
Suction lines transport refrigerant to the compressor from the evaporator. Keeping these lines from absorbing heat during that process can make the entire refrigeration system run more efficiently, thus reducing energy usage. All that needs to be done, is add some insulation to the suction lines.
3 - Use automatic door closers on walk-in refrigerators.
Automatic door closers are one of the least expensive ways to reduce energy usage. By simply attaching them to walk-in door hinges, you'll keep the cool inside the refrigerator or freezer.
4 - Several other swaps can help save money, and the service techs at Ron Hammes Refrigeration can help!
