According to the US Department of Energy, commercial buildings consume an estimated 20% of the total amount of energy used in the United States every year, with commercial refrigeration, including all types of food preserving equipment, accounting for 6% of the total energy usage. Their estimations show that proper commercial refrigeration repair and maintenance would result in savings of over $400 million annually and would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6 billion every year.

Birmingham Refrigeration Repair’s report outlines system maintenance requirements that can be regularly made to increase commercial refrigeration’s performance and contribute to reducing operational costs. Their guide demonstrates how regular maintenance and simple system improvements can reduce energy use by 15%.

Some of the essential commercial refrigeration repair and maintenance observations they propose include:

  •     Acknowledge heat recovery opportunities
  •     Consider ambiental sub-cooling of liquid refrigerants
  •     Carry out proper cleaning and maintenance practices
  •     Introduce high-efficiency technologies to achieve significant energy savings, such as: evaporator fan motors, compressor systems, liquid pressure amplifiers, floating head pressure controls, etc.

In recent decades, the US Department of Energy has strengthened standards for commercial refrigeration facilities and has led technological advancement that significantly improved the energy efficiency of commercial refrigeration units, translating into huge savings and lower greenhouse gas emissions. The Department will continue to invest in technological innovations for energy-efficient products and raise awareness of the great importance of ensuring proper maintenance for commercial refrigeration units.
