The Importance of Eco-Friendly Refrigeration

The Importance of Eco-Friendly Refrigeration
10/10/2019

Being the largest consumer of electricity in your kitchen, refrigerators are some of the biggest contributors to energy bills of businesses in the catering sector. In addition to the initial cost of buying a unit itself, the annual cost of running these appliances can add up to almost £100; possibly more in large, commercial kitchens with high levels of day-to-day food production. Whilst your utility costs are increasing, carbon dioxide emissions go up in tandem, making it all the more reason operators need to consider green, eco-friendly alternatives when shopping for new appliances.

Improvement in energy efficiency has been a highly sought aspect in refrigeration technology. For example, magnetic refrigeration is the newer technology that has broken into the market in recent years. Instead of the traditional gas-compression refrigeration, magnetic refrigeration is quieter, safer (due to less pressure) & able to emit much lower temperatures due to the magnetic field involved in the cooling equation. Not only is this a gas-free alternative, but it also vastly decreases energy consumption & thus decreases running costs.

What Caterers should Consider before Buying new Equipment

Due to high volumes of food being stored, finding the right size for a caterer’s new refrigerator is vital. Depending on the scale of the venues you cater for, you may need multiple units or a single large unit to get the most value for your money. The larger the unit, the more energy is spent to keep it running, making it important that you’ve researched what size refrigerator is best for you. Be sure to consult your colleagues, managers or one of our dedicated customer service professionals to give you the best advice possible for your particular needs.
