Refrigeration and Cool Room efficiencies
In businesses where there are cold rooms and refrigeration we can reduce consumption by 30% or more. By adding control modules to compressor units, in addition to new temperature dispersant thermostats, we reduce compressor running times, stagger fan operation and prevent short cycling (cutting in and out frequently). This dramatically decreases 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.
