Turbo Air: Creating Energy-Efficient Commercial Refrigeration

Turbo Air

If you’re In the market for new commercial refrigeration and are looking to save money on energy use, look no further than Turbo Air. Turbo Air strives for less energy consumption and better performance throughout their line of commercial refrigerators and freezers, while keeping the size of the compressor the same.

Central Restaurant Products has Turbo Air’s full line of refrigeration products to help you find the solutions you need at competitive prices. Oh, and free shipping too!

Why Choose Turbo Air?

Turbo Air equipment includes several energy efficient technologies that save you money on utilities and prolong the life of your equipment. In fact, they have over 80 products qualified under the latest Energy Star guidelines. By purchasing Energy Star rated equipment, you could qualify for rebates from your utility company.

Other benefits include:

Self-Cleaning Condenser System

Turbo Air units are known for their self-cleaning condensers. When you have a high traffic area that produces a lot of dust, the ability of the condenser from properly reducing heat becomes compromised. This results in lessened efficiency. The self-cleaning condenser system cleans the condenser using a rotating brush that moves up and down 2-3 times per day. This prevents any dust build-up, which keeps your unit running efficiently.

Energy Saving Fan Controller

Every refrigerator has a fan motor, which runs continuously throughout the day to circulate cold air. The fan generates a lot of heat when in use. When the compressor is not running, that means the fan can start circulating warm air instead of cold.

To combat this, each Turbo Air refrigerator has a fan controller, which is used to strategically stop the fan motor from running once an increase in temperature is detected within the unit. This can translate into 15% to 25% in overall energy savings, as well as an increase in the lifespan of the compressor.

Larger Condensers

For higher efficiency, Turbo Air uses condensers sized 10% to 20% larger than the industry standard more efficiently draw heat from your condenser coils.

LED Interior Lighting

Turbo Air units use LED interior lighting, which not only are more energy efficient, but also use optimal light angles for enhancing your display effects.
