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
