Replacing all existing commercial solid door refrigerators and freezers in the U.S. with ENERGY STAR qualified models would result in savings of $410 million per year or more than 35 percent of the energy consumed by models currently on the market. These savings would also prevent 6 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to the emissions from about 530,000 cars.
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.
