Problem: While chilling incubators look like refrigerators, they use 5-10 times more electricity to maintain a narrow temperature range, even close to room temperature.
Solution: Find ways to organize your existing chilled storage such as walk-in rooms, or buy a dedicated freezer or refrigerator.
Benefits: You may save 5-10 kWh per day, equaling $200-400 per year in electricity alone. Reduced heating load put on the HVAC system is an additional hidden savings.
Cost: There may be some investment in time or funds.
