Energy Saving Tips
START-UP/SHUT DOWN: Make a schedule. Most equipment requires 15 minutes to pre-heat. Rather than turning everything on first thing in the morning, determine what needs to be on and when.
PLANNED MAINTENANCE: Invest in routine planned maintenance: clean coils, clean filters, replace worn gaskets, align doors, follow manufacturer cleaning instructions. Cleaning and maintenance are key to protecting your investment and getting the most out of your equipment.
UTILITY BILL TRACKING: Watch your utility bill for any large increases or decreases as drastic changes may be related to a piece of equipment that is operating out of spec.
ENERGY STAR: Invest in ENERGY STAR commercial food service appliances when you can – take advantage of incentives – save energy, save money, and enjoy many benefits beyond energy savings –
