J & E Hall claims its new ambient beer cooler can cut cellar cooling energy bills by up to 40 per cent by using free cooling.
The unit uses free cooling to allow beers to be stored at a perfect temperature during the winter months.
When the outside temperature is low enough, the fan-operated cooler brings cold air into a beer cellar to reduce the temperature and will switch off the main refrigeration cellar cooler system while it draws cold air from outside – cutting energy bills and saving money.
J & E Hall Product Sales Manager Tony Twine said: “It is estimated that up to a quarter of a pub’s energy bill can be accounted for by its refrigeration requirements – so publicans and breweries are always looking for a more cost effective way to cool their beer cellars.
“The J & E Hall ambient beer cooler can save a large proportion of energy costs over a year – up to 40 per cent.
The company claims the key to this is the use of free cooling, cold air from outside, a ‘greener’ way of cooling beers.
The J & E Hall ambient beer cooler also contains no refrigerants, said to reduce servicing costs and extends the life of the main cellar cooling system.
“The J & E Hall ambient beer cooler is easy to install and also fits with any make or model of main refrigerated cellar cooling system on the market.”
The ambient beer cooler operates when it’s cold outside at temperatures under 8 deg C.
When temperatures rise above this level the ambient beer cooler will turn itself off and revert back to the main refrigerated cellar cooling system.
