Refrigeration in Restaurants
    • Keep fridge doors closed whenever possible

    • Regularly defrost and clean fridges Check that the seals on cold rooms and fridges are intact

    • Keep the condensers and evaporators on your fridges and cooling equipment clean

    • If fridges only store fizzy drinks, turn them off after hours

    • When buying new refrigerators, AA++ rated units have the lowest running costs

    40% of the energy you consume goes in the preparation and storage of food

    • Check your water temperature is at 60°C – this keeps water hot and kills bacteria

    • Insulate hot water pipes to reduce heat loss

    • Spray water taps use less water than conventional faucets

    • Fix leaking taps as quickly as possible

    33% of your energy cost is spent on heating and hot water
