Keep it Cool. Eliminate Costly Inefficiencies
Vol 1. Creating Successful Climate Controlled Facilities
Lighting climate controlled facilities provides a unique challenge as far as inefficiencies go. Traditional lighting equipment produces heat, which is obviously not wanted when operating a climate controlled facility.
The right type of lighting, however, can help avoid these inefficiencies. Certain types of LED systems are a good fit for cold storage units by increasing in efficiency as temperatures drop, consuming 76% less energy than other systems.
Small changes can have a significant impact on operations.
- The average refrigerated warehouse customer uses each door an average of 720 times each day, costing $65 per day, per door.
- Switching to energy efficient methods drops those costs by more than 66% to just $22 per day.
Another example of how improving energy efficiency can provide expansive savings is a refrigerated Walmart distribution center, which is netting big savings.
They switched to low-energy, solid-state LED lights, enabling them to keep their facility cooler than with traditional lighting systems.
It is estimated that they will be generating $129,000 in annual savings as a result of this change.
