How to save on refrigeration for your business

You know what would make your business even cooler? Saving energy on your refrigeration.

Energy-Saving Refrigeration Tips

  • Keep doors shut as much as possible to reduce temperature fluctuations.
  • Install a plastic strip curtain over the entrance.
  • Check temperature settings. ENERGY STAR® recommends settings between -14° and -8° Fahrenheit for freezers and between 35° and 38° Fahrenheit for refrigerators.
  • Clean cooling coils and keep them free of ice buildup.
  • Make sure your door seals are tight. If you can easily slide a dollar bill into the seal, have it adjusted.
  • Verify that your door latch works properly and that your doors properly close.
  • Use a door closer to automatically pull a walk-in door shut quickly after it’s opened.
  • Purchase ENERGY STAR solid or glass door refrigerators and freezers.
  • Install lighting sensors in walk-in refrigerators, coolers and freezers.
  • Install evaporative condensers, instead of air-cooled condensers.
  • Install heat recovery systems and use heat removed from display cases to heat water.
  • Install pull-down blinds on open dairy and produce cases to keep refrigerated air from escaping during non-operating hours.
