Keeping a constant (cool) temperature inside refrigerators, freezers and cooled display units is key to product safety.
Temperature spikes can have a negative impact on these units, requiring significantly more energy to keep a constant cool or worst case failing to keep cooled goods at their required temperature set point, resulting in higher waste and consequently lower profits.
Modern cooling equipment has closed lids in order to reduce the energy levels needed to keep the goods at the proper temperature level. These closed lids may result in energy savings from the display equipment; however, the missing cooling effect on the store temperature can create spikes and hot zones in the store. In turn this may counteract the energy savings potential from the modern equipment as the increased store temperature affects the need for cooling inside the displays, hence also the energy consumption.
During the hot summer season store temperatures may reach critical levels resulting in the malfunction of the cooling displays. Retrofitting the store with a FabricAir Dispersion System is a quick and viable solution to the hot air challenge, which will have a positive effect on the energy consumption as well as the shelf-life of the goods.
