Energy-efficient design is inherent in Imperial Walk-in Coolers and Freezers, and may result in tax credits, utility rebates, or other benefits. Energy-efficiency guides the selection of walk-in cooler and freezer cooling components to meet the intended workload, preserving product quality and avoiding overloaded components.
Immediate payback and long-term return on your investment are typical results from energy-efficient designs in Imperial Walk-in Coolers and Freezers. Immediate payback can come from any combination of utility rebates, tax incentives, and other organization incentives. Long-term savings are generally seen in lower monthly energy costs with typical payback in months on physical walk-in cooler and freezer upgrades. The design concepts in Imperial Walk-in Coolers and Freezers were tested, measured, and reported for energy-efficiency in the lab at the Food Service Technology Center in California.
All Imperial Walk-in Coolers and Freezers meet or exceed Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) requirements. Panels for Imperial Walk-in Coolers and Freezers are insulated using 245fa blowing agent, allowing a 4-inch panel to meet the R-32 requirements. Each panel uses a baked urethane hard-rail frame that maintains a high level of thermal efficiency even while adding strength and rigidity to the panel.
Imperial Cold Storage Doors swing doors use an automatic closure package, which is now required since EISA went into effect on January 1, 2009, and have adjustable hinges that help form a tight seal at installation and during future adjustments. Imperial Cold Storage Doors horizontal sliding and vertical lift doors use the same panel construction as our wall panels, with the same insulating abilities.
