Water heaters are crucial to your business

A food premises’ hot water temperature must be at least 82°C (180°F) for cleaning and sanitation purposes.2 Why risk disrupting service by having an unreliable supply? Don’t close the doors on dinner, talk to us about how to keep your hot water flowing.

As a crucial part of your business’ mechanical equipment, your commercial water heater provides potable water for drinking and cooking, sanitation capabilities in your kitchens for dishwashing and handwashing, and in cases where a heat exchanger is involved – space heating. With Natural Resources Canada estimating that 5.7% of energy used in a typical commercial setting comes from your water heater, now is the time to see if yours is running at peak performance3.

A common reason for water heater failure is old age, contributing to any one of the following problems: leaks, temperature issues, takes too long to heat, strange noises and dirty, rusty or smelly water4. New water heaters have significant benefits over older water heaters, making now a good time to upgrade.

Rooftop Air Conditioner Unit (RTU) – your key to customer comfort

Customer discomfort can quickly turn a great dining experience into a negative review. A properly sized and operated rooftop unit is critical – providing cooling, dehumidification, heating and fresh air. Upgrade or service your unit now to get you through the highs and lows of Canadian weather.

A rooftop unit (RTU) combines heating, ventilating, and air conditioning in one, and are typically installed on the roof of a building. They can vary in size, ranging from 3 to 40 tons, or larger. Their typical useful life is 15 to 20 years, though RTUs older than 10 years can be inefficient and waste energy. The most efficient RTUs can be up to 50% more efficient than those available 10 years ago, and these energy savings originate from a variety of new features, including:5

  • Variable- or multi-speed fan control
  • Integrated economizer control
  • Demand-controlled ventilation
  • Remote monitoring and communication

By replacing or upgrading your RTU, you could increase energy efficiency to help save on energy costs and improve comfort for employees and customers.

Keep cooking odours in the kitchen with make-up air

Make-up air gives you better control of airflow to direct cooking odours away from your dining area. It also prevents your exhaust, heating and cooling systems from working  harder than they should. Maintain a comfortable customer experience and control energy costs by servicing or upgrading your make-up air system.

Make-up air units provide cool or heated air to your restaurant, replacing air that has been ventilated out, as well as old and stale air. Make-up air units are needed where large volumes of air are being exhausted. By pulling fresh air from the outside to the inside of your building, make-up air units improve indoor air quality. For many commercial buildings, they can be more effective and energy efficient than typical ventilation fans.6

Reduce energy costs through improved ventilation systems

Demand control kitchen ventilation (DCKV) detects temperature, vapour, and smoke in kitchens, and adjusts airflow to respond to your kitchen’s energy needs. Fans adjust to increase ventilation when needed, and decreasing ventilation during slower periods, reducing the need for natural gas and electricity usage. Furthermore, it can help reduce wear-and-tear on your equipment and provide a more comfortable climate for kitchen staff.

Some benefits include:

  • Use up to 60 percent less fan energy
  • Decrease noise
  • Reduce odours in the kitchen and dining room
  • Lower your carbon footprint7
