If you’re in the market for a walk in cooler and a walk in freezer, have you considered a cooler-freezer combination unit? These units have several advantages to save you money. In today’s tough economy, most businesses are looking to reduce costs wherever possible.
You may be asking yourself “How will a cooler freezer combination unit save me money?” First of all, it uses fewer materials, which equals lower costs. The reason that fewer materials are used is because the cooler and freezer share a common wall. So, instead of having a cooler with four walls and a freezer with four walls for a total of eight, your unit will actually have a cooler with three walls and a freezer with four walls for a total of seven.
Now, let’s consider how efficiently a cooler freezer combo will operate. When you have two separate units, there is a lot of cold air lost every time the door opens. Whenever you lose cold air you’re losing money since your condensing unit and coil(s) have to kick on to cool your unit back down to the desired temperature. Now, imagine if you have an entrance door on your common wall. This will be very beneficial because it will allow you to exchange cold air with even colder air. For example, if you enter through the cooler and have a door on your common wall, when you open the common wall door you’ll be exchanging (in most cases) 35 degree air and -10 degree air. This saves energy because the air you’re exchanging is already cooled, not the case with having two exterior entrance doors that allow room temperature air to invade the cooler, causing your condensing unit to run.
