A new op-ed published in Progressive Grocer provides a simple framework to help supermarket operators evaluate their refrigeration equipment: Safety, Simplicity, and Sustainability.
Is the refrigeration equipment safe for technicians servicing it? Is it safe for customers?
Is the equipment simple? Can it be installed and serviced easily with minimal headaches, and for a manageable cost?
Does the equipment help the store be more sustainable? Is the system energy efficient?
Fortunately, systems powered by low global warming potential (GWP) HFCs, HFOs, and HFC/HFO blends – known collectively as advanced climate technologies or “ACTs” – meet these questions with a resounding “yes” across the board.
For more on the unique advantages of ACTs for supermarkets and small grocers, read Tried and True Refrigerant Solutions in Progressive Grocer.
