Energy Efficiency
Install / Maintain Energy Star Or High Efficiency Restaurant Equipment

What Is It?

ENERGY STAR-labeled and high efficiency restaurant equipment are designed and approved to use less water and energy than other equipment. Refrigerators, ice machines, fryers, and dishwashers are a few of the ENERGY STAR labeled appliances available.


ENERGY STAR-labeled products use less energy than conventional appliances and therefore cost less to operate, lowering utility bills and reducing demand on the energy grid. ENERGY STAR-labeled restaurant equipment typically uses about a third of the energy of conventional models without sacrificing features, style, or performance.
