HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, AR, January 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Commercial refrigeration is not exciting. The walk-in coolers and freezers common to many businesses are simply a necessity. Consumers have been conditioned to expect a wide variety of foods and beverages filling display coolers and freezers in stores - some of which that stretch for hundreds of feet.
But commercial refrigeration is a major expense for these businesses. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy reports that as much as one-half of the utility bills of restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and other retailers are directly attributed to refrigeration. The same massive refrigeration expenses are also borne by schools, jails, hospitals, nursing facilities, florists, and many more facilities.
Businesses, facility managers, and non-profit organizations have been helpless to combat refrigeration expenses. Making matters worse are the continually increasing electricity rates - with no promise of rates ever declining.
But the situation is far from hopeless. Operations that rely on commercial refrigeration are no longer powerless against crushing electricity bills.
FridgeWize is a company that specializes in the retrofitting of commercial refrigeration systems with energy-saving technologies. There are no "black boxes". The savings are easily identified through much more efficient electronically-controlled motors on refrigeration fans and electronic controls on "anti-sweat heaters" on display coolers and freezers, as well as LED lighting and night covers for open units.
These technologies provide immediate, measurable, and verifiable energy savings for commercial refrigeration users - in some cases reducing the electricity demand of refrigeration systems by 80% or more!
FridgeWize is the distribution and installation arm of a company that extends from coast to coast and into Canada. FridgeWize has now opened an office to serve commercial customers in the mid-south from a radius in central Arkansas.
Randy Reek is the FridgeWize Cost Control Manager of the new location based in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Service and installation of the FridgeWize products will extend into the bordering areas of Tennessee, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas.
Randy stated, "FridgeWize starts every business relationship with a free energy evaluation of their refrigeration systems. The current energy consumption of each equipment area is carefully documented, including recording the exact current electricity rates. This free energy audit is more comprehensive and accurate than surveys that our customers have actually paid hundreds of dollars to prepare."
Mr. Reek continued, "Following the energy audit, FridgeWize prepares a detailed proposal that shows the cost and return on investment for several energy-saving retrofits. The customer then has a menu of possible upgrades to choose from. They can see exactly and in advance which areas currently cost the most to operate and what kinds of savings can be achieved with FridgeWize solutions."
One of the most unique aspects of FridgeWize services is that they offer their customers 100% financing through a lease-purchase option. Randy Reek added, "Many of our customers recognize the accounting benefits of expensing capital improvements through leasing. But even more important is the fact that we can structure the lease of chosen equipment to also include installation labor and even product shipping and local sales tax."
"The bottom line is that we provide a no-money-down option that allows the facility to pay for these refrigeration upgrades with a monthly payment that is always less than the immediate energy savings they receive."
"It is no exaggeration to say that we basically pay our customers to let us upgrade their commercial refrigeration systems! They make money from the moment we complete their installations."
The FridgeWize Arkansas operation builds on thousands of successful installations across the U.S. and Canada. FridgeWize has a standing offer to replace the new energy-saving technologies with the old equipment if the customer is not 100% satisfied. To date, no one has taken advantage of this offer.
This may be partially due to the strong endorsement of electric utilities across the country, many that have run live monitoring tests on the FridgeWize installations. In every case and in every location the energy savings are immediate, measurable, and verifiable.
