Let’s look at how reducing evaporator fan speed, coupled with energy efficient EC Motors in your CEW & Keg Coolers have a multitude of positive affects on your business:

1. Your evaporator fans currently run at high speed all the time, the result is:

  • Heat generated and dumped into the CEW
  • A constant noise that takes away from worker satisfaction & productivity
  • A significant energy consumption

2. Because your evaporator fans are dumping heat into the CEW, your compressors and condensing fans have to cycle more to remove this added heat – again, resulting in even more energy consumption.

Project Costs are determined by the number of evaporators and fans, while Paybacks vary based upon the size of the project, size of motors, cost of electricity, and utility incentives available.  Our experience with the custom incentives for AB Wholesalers is the utility programs typically fund 25-35% of the project, in some cases more or less.  Incentives will typically drive Paybacks down around 1 Year or less, and the Paybacks are verified by the utility programs’ administering engineers.
