Energy Star

Buying Guide: ENERGY STAR Restaurant Equipment

Did you know restaurants use five to seven times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings, such as offices and retail stores? High-volume quick service restaurants can even use up to 10 times more energy per square foot. By becoming more energy efficient, restaurants can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve their own financial bottom line.

So where do you start? An easy way to reduce your restaurant’s energy consumption is by purchasing ENERGY STAR qualified commercial restaurant equipment. Energy costs are continually increasing; investing in energy efficiency is the best way to protect your business against the rising price of energy consumption.

If you’re in the market for new restaurant equipment, and considering ENERGY STAR qualified appliances, it’s best to think in terms of life-cycle costs. This includes purchase price, annual energy costs, and other long-term costs typically associated with commercial equipment. While high efficiency restaurant equipment may require a larger investment up front, it can also significantly lower your utility bills, making up for that initial price difference.

Whether you’re cooking, refrigerating, or holding food there is significant energy savings associated with using ENERGY STAR qualified models in your commercial kitchen. ENERGY STAR qualifies commercial food service equipment in several restaurant equipment categories including:

The benefit of these qualified products is that they can save as much as 50 percent over their conventional counterparts. Ready to shop? Burkett Restaurant Equipment can supply you with best in class ENERGY STAR qualified equipment.

Everyone is trying to save money, while at the same time working to improve our world. That’s why many manufacturers are working hard to ensure that their products are energy efficient. ENERGY STAR labeled commercial refrigerators and freezers are more energy efficient because they are designed with components such as ECM evaporator and condenser fan motors, hot gas anti-sweat heaters, or high-efficiency compressors, which will significantly reduce energy consumption and utility bills. Compared to standard models, ENERGY STAR labeled commercial refrigerators and freezers can lead to energy savings of as much as 35 percent with a 1.3 year payback.
