Refrigeration units place significant strains on electric grids. In addition to their annual running costs, units often contain hazardous materials that require proper disposal and recycling as they are phased out of inventory.
Providing a foundation to build an eco-conscious facility starts with the installation and use of environmentally safe products. Refrigeration units are no exception. The government monitors and rewards organizations who meet or exceed standards, reinforcing the importance of having discussions on the sustainability and eco-friendliness of initiatives during all parts of the planning and implementation process.
As manufacturers continue to enhance and develop models, upgrading or installing eco-friendly refrigeration units makes both business and environmental sense.
