Energy Saving Tips for a Commercial Kitchen

Commercial kitchens use a lot of electricity and if you aren’t mindful about your energy usage, then you can be slapped with huge electricity bills. If you want to save money and reduce your kitchen’s carbon footprint, here are some simple tips to reduce the energy usage of your commercial kitchen.

Invest in energy efficient equipment

The best way to reduce your day-to-day energy usage is to invest in energy saving kitchen equipment and appliances. Before buying your commercial kitchen equipment, make sure you conduct thorough research and choose items that have the best energy ratings.

Regular maintenance

Equipment that hasn’t been cleaned properly has to work harder, using more energy in the process. Make sure all your kitchen equipment is cleaned and well maintained, and all parts are functioning properly. If any parts are damaged replace and repair them as soon as possible.

Use energy efficient lighting

If you’re looking for the most energy efficient light choice, then opt for LED lighting. While costing a little more initially, LED lights last far longer than halogen bulbs and save a considerable amount of power. This will save you lots of money in the long run.

Reduce heat usage

You can try decreasing water temperature in the dishwasher and other cleaning equipment (while still ensuring it is sanitary). You can also try isolating the cool and hot areas of your kitchen using a condensate hood or strip doors. This will prevent you spending unnecessary energy on keeping cool areas cool and hot areas warm.

Don’t forget to switch off

Switching off all power and utilities after a working day makes a big difference in energy saving. This is especially important if you are closing for a public holiday or closed day. Make sure all of your staff know where all power points and switches are, so they can all help out.
