Many refrigeration systems comprise older equipment, and many businesses are unable to afford the cost of replacing the equipment with newer components. But there are options out there to retrofit the systems with energy efficiency measures that will reduce their energy usage and catch them up to newer systems.
Often older equipment is operating at full capacity 24/7/365. This is not cost effective and promotes system failures. But for many businesses it is simply not cost feasible to replace their systems with brand new equipment.
So what are the options? Start by looking at efficiency retrofits to bridge the performance gap. In reality, with how simple and effective it is to retrofit the systems, businesses should take a hard look at incorporating efficiency measures.
Commercial refrigeration systems are the biggest energy user within many industries, accounting for about 40 to 60 percent of electricity consumption, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Buying new, higher-efficiency refrigeration equipment can be cost prohibitive, which is why making targeted retrofits or upgrades to existing systems may make the most sense for many.
Incorporating these smart controls, your system doesn’t have to run 100%, 100% of the time. Intelligent automated controls offer huge opportunities for energy savings and performance improvements. This solution can reduce the entire footprint of a store’s refrigeration system by 30-60%.
The controls will take over the operation of the system, based on preset temperature set-points and cooling schedules. Some controls solutions incorporate anti-sweat door heater controls, and defrost cycles into their management.
Business owners and site managers should first start with an energy audit. It’s difficult to make actual improvements without knowing exactly what needs improved.
At Refrigeration Technologies’, we save our clients’ money by manufacturing and selling smart innovation, retrofit refrigeration energy-efficient technology. Our products pay for themselves within 4 years installed in most cases and the resulting savings can cut your energy bill by up to 30% or more! As utility rates continue to climb, there has never been a better time to invest in cutting-edge technology and see massive savings as a result.
Our technology controls evaporator fans, room temperature, compressor/liquid line solenoid, and defrost heaters while providing multiple alarms when systems deviate from normal use. This provides energy savings that are verified by third party administrators & engineers.
ArtikControl™ maximizes energy efficiency with less compressor run times resulting from shorter defrost cycles. Also a reduction in excessive temperature that occur with mechanical defrost units and the use of latent Energy in the box reducing compressor run times.
With these features and benefits you can be sure your commercial refrigeration is as energy efficient as possible, saving you money on the ever increasing energy bills.
ArtikControl™ consistently monitors your walk-in coolers/freezers and sends out alarms via text and email alerts when problems arise so that any failure or temperature problems are discovered and addressed as quickly as possible.
Refrigeration Technologies will show you how to reduce food spoilage, monitor your temperatures and save energy. These are just a few of the benefits a refrigeration owner or operator will experience with the installation of ArtikControl™ WIC &WIF Technologies.
For more Information about some of the most common problems that occur inside walk-in freezers and how our Technologies can give you Peace of Mind, save energy and more importantly put money in your refrigeration operations, please contact us at 888-286-3091 or email me at MYannessa@refrigerationtechnologiesllc.com.
