Inside Refrigeration

1. Correct temperature setting
Ensure you are running your cabinet at the required temperature. Running refrigeration equipment at too low a temperature uses unnecessary energy.

2. Condensation
The build up of condensation inside a refrigerator can cause mould to form inside cabinets, this can damage door seals and impair energy efficiency. In addition, excess water can compromise food safety and damage stored food.

3. Door opening
The number of times a refrigerator door is opened per day will have a direct impact on the amount of energy consumed. The unit will work harder to bring its core temperature back to the set temperature point.

4. Store products correctly
To ensure even temperature distribution and optimum efficiency, airflow within the cabinet should not be restricted by over filling or incorrect storage of large items.

5. Location of equipment
The incorrect positioning of cabinets can radically effect energy efficiency. Refrigeration cabinets should ideally be located in a dry and adequately ventilated room, away from heat emitting surfaces such as ovens.
