Storm Alert

National Grid is prepared for the 4th Nor’easter to hit our region in 3 weeks. Our crews are prepared in the event the forecasted snowstorm causes damage to our region’s natural gas network, and we want to ensure you are prepared, too. As you dig out of your homes and businesses, remember the deep snowpack left by snow removal equipment may have clogged vents, furnaces and other appliances. These conditions could lead to natural gas leaks. If you suspect a gas leak, make sure you leave the premises immediately and call National Grid’s emergency number at 1-800-490-0045.

Faster service, better guest satisfaction scores and lower overhead. That’s what you’ll gain with today’s energy efficient hotel and restaurant equipment. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Upgrading your commercial food service and restaurant equipment can save you energy, boost your bottom line, and improve equipment life.

  • Consider upgrading to the following refrigeration controls and equipment:
    • Door/frame heater controls
    • Zero-energy doors
    • Outside air economizers
    • New energy-efficient compressors
    • Defrost controllers for freezers
    • High-efficiency evaporator fan (EC) motors
    • Display case covers for refrigerated cases and freezers
    • Floating-head pressure controls
    • Evaporator fan motor controls
    • Lighting, where it operates for hours at a time
  • Regular equipment maintenance plays a key role in saving energy:
    • Clean refrigerator coils at least twice a year
    • If a dollar bill easily slips out between your refrigerator door seals, replace the door gaskets
    • To maximize energy efficiency and lengthen equipment life, service large refrigeration systems at least once per year
