We monitor your usage and will look for opportunities to avoid the spikes – saving you up to 50% on these charges. Meaning BIG savings.
Refrigeration and Cool Room efficiencies
If your business has cold rooms and refrigeration we can reduce consumption by 30% or more. By simply adding control modules to compressor units, in addition to new temperature dispersant thermostats, we are able to reduce compressor running times, stagger fan operation and prevent short cycling (cutting in and out frequently). These control modules dramatically decrease power consumption, wear and breakdown.
Reduced Maintenance and repair costs
Over time equipment drifts from settings and errors develop in electrical and mechanical components in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. Small faults and failures in minor components such as a thermostat or relay can go un- detected for months or years and double or treble power consumption. It can also cause major mechanical damage to equipment. The Building Tuner will monitor usage to enable you to identify any issues so that repairs can be undertaken to avoid power wastage and significant damage to equipment.
