The return on investment (ROI) of commercial refrigeration retrofitting depends on several factors, including the cost of the retrofit, the energy savings achieved, and any potential revenue or operational benefits. Here are some key considerations when evaluating the ROI of commercial refrigeration retrofitting:
- Energy Savings: One of the primary reasons for retrofitting commercial refrigeration systems is to improve energy efficiency. Newer, more efficient equipment and technologies can significantly reduce energy consumption. Calculate the expected energy savings over the lifetime of the retrofit.
- Equipment Costs: Consider the upfront costs of the retrofit, which may include the purchase of new equipment, installation costs, and any necessary modifications to the existing system.
- Maintenance and Repair Savings: Newer equipment often requires less maintenance and is less prone to breakdowns. Factor in the expected savings on maintenance and repair costs.
- Utility Incentives: Many utility companies offer incentives or rebates for businesses that upgrade to more energy-efficient refrigeration systems. Take advantage of these programs to reduce the overall cost of the retrofit.
- Operational Benefits: Retrofitting can provide operational benefits such as better temperature control, improved product quality, and reduced food waste. These benefits can lead to increased revenue or cost savings.
- Life Expectancy: Consider the expected lifespan of the retrofit equipment. Higher-quality, more efficient equipment may last longer, further improving the ROI.
- Financing Options: Explore financing options, such as loans or leases, which can help spread out the upfront costs and improve the ROI by allowing you to benefit from energy savings immediately.
- Environmental Benefits: Some businesses may also benefit from reduced carbon emissions and a more environmentally friendly image, which can have positive PR and marketing effects.
- Payback Period: Calculate the payback period, which is the time it takes to recoup the initial investment through energy savings and other benefits. A shorter payback period is generally more favorable.
- Long-Term Cost of Ownership: Consider the long-term cost of ownership, including ongoing energy costs and potential equipment replacement or maintenance expenses.
- Regulatory Compliance: Ensure that the retrofit meets any regulatory requirements or environmental standards, as non-compliance can result in fines or legal issues.
It’s important to conduct a thorough cost-benefit analysis and consult with experts in commercial refrigeration to determine the specific ROI for your retrofit project. Additionally, consider the unique factors of your business, such as its size, location, and operational requirements. In many cases, retrofitting commercial refrigeration systems can provide a positive ROI over time, as it not only reduces energy consumption but also enhances operational efficiency and reduces long-term operating costs.
We have the smartest refrigeration team ready to help you reach your goals to save energy and money. Our Engineers will come in and inspect your equipment for possible problems and offer recommendations on how to make your refrigeration system more efficient and economical.
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. Saving money and your food in the process
“Arti” our ArtikControl™ Dashboard offers real-time information, remote access, and intelligent energy controls. Giving you the constant information you need to monitor your systems. The flexibility of ArtikControl™ allows for the inclusion of multiple locations and multiple systems (walk-in boxes; reach-in displays and portable units) into one cohesive, technology-managed solution.
Arti’s user-friendly interface allows for easy, onsite adjustment and the networked solution allows for remote access and appropriate levels of information to be communicated specific to each stakeholder. In addition to reducing expense, the solution enhances more accurate budgeting and elimination of operational inefficiencies using reliable technology controls.!
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.
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.
