“In the UK, refrigerated display cabinets use around 5,800GWh/year. This is over a third of all the electricity used for refrigeration in the food chain and costs around £500m per year…Refrigerated display cases rank number one in areas where energy use can be significantly cut.” (source Carbon Trust)

Correctly maintaining your refrigeration equipment can save you energy and money, as well as reducing downtime. Reduced energy consumption, lower service costs and less plant downtime are the primary effect.
