When purchasing a walk in cooler or freezer, it’s important to understand exactly what it is that you’re getting. This is especially true when it comes to your refrigeration equipment. You should make absolutely sure that you’re walk in cooler or freezer’s refrigeration system is equipped with EC motors.
As of January 1st 2009, EC motors are now required on all walk in coolers or freezers under 3,000 square feet. This is enforced by the government through regulations mandated by the department of energy. Make sure that you’re being quoted EC motors on all of your walk in cooler and freezer quotes that fit the aforementioned criteria.
EC motors are actually a great thing for the customer. EC motors are much more efficient than shaded pole motors and will save the customer money over the life of their walk in cooler or freezer. With the rising prices of electricity, the cost savings between EC motors and shaded pole motors can be dramatic. EC motors coupled with other energy efficient equipment such as LED lighting can save the customer a great deal of money over the course of the unit’s life, and can actually more than pay for themselves.
