3. Do You Have The Right Refrigerator Doors?
Fridges and freezers use up to 30% of energy and are essential to the operation of your kitchen. They’re the one appliance in constant use, with their doors being opened and closed countless times a day. To help reduce energy loss, consider alternative refrigerator doors such as:
Frameless Doors – this is a great way for staff and customers to view the content inside without having to open the doors. Meaning they use less energy (up to 55%), maintain a consistent temperature and reduce their impact on the environment. They’re also lighter and easier to clean.
Double Doors – if your staff know how your fridge is stacked, they only need to open one side rather than the whole unit. This contains cooler air within the unit and wastes less energy. Just check your kitchen has adequate space in front for both doors to be opened.
Stable Doors – similar to double doors, stable doors mean only a smaller section of your fridge needs to be opened at any time. Again, this contains cooler air within the unit and less energy is consumed.
