Did you know there are areas in your store where can you reduce your energy expenditures and save up to half your energy costs while your store is closed? Just install Econofrost night covers to start reducing energy losses and extending product shelf life. Since accessibility to fresh food items means easy selection for consumers, most refrigerated merchandisers are open and uncovered. Many thermal barriers such as cooler doors are also visual barriers and inhibit access by shoppers. On the other hand, any supermarket or retail food store that has open display coolers is paying a lot to refrigerate the contents 24 hours a day.
What challenges the cooling equipment and compromises the chilled goods is the ambient heat that constantly moves into the coolers from the aisle. Become one of the many retailers who are discovering that when refrigerated foods are protected with Econofrost and allowed to chill properly overnight, the beneficial effects can last up to 15 hours after the store opens.
