FiltaCool helps control food costs & increases yield by extending the shelf life of food & reducing waste.
For example, restaurants typically spend 30% of their revenue on food costs. A restaurant with an annual revenue of $1,000,000 will spend $300,000 on food. Of that $300,000, 35% is commonly spent on produce – $105,000 a year.
Using a conservative example of 2% savings on just the cost of produce, the total savings comes to $2,100/year or $175/month (plus the additional savings for other perishable food items).
Independent tests show FiltaCool lowers temperature 2-5 degrees and reduces compressor run-time and kWh demand by 10%.
For example, the average walk-in cooler (8’x 12’x 7.5’) uses 20,000 kWh per year.
The National Average cost of energy is .11 cents per kWh. So the cost to operate the cooler comes to $2,244.00 (20,400 x .11) per year.
Reducing KWh demand by 10% saves $224.40 per year or $18.70 per month on energy costs.
Because the equipment does not have to work as hard to maintain lower temperature and proper humidity, the life of the equipment is extended by 33-40%, and customers using FiltaCool report maintenance and repair costs are also reduced.
For example, the cost for a 1 1/2 horsepower compressor and an 8200 BTU evaporator unit with two fans is approximately $3,000 (5 year life expectancy).
A 40% increase adds 2 years to the life of the equipment saving $172.00 per year.

“Reducing cooler run time by 10% will prolong equipment life by approximately 33% to 40%.”

“Even the smallest amount of money saved on energy is critical… If you can improve energy consumption you’re essentially improving profit margin.”
