J & E Hall’s new beer cooler cuts energy bills by up to 40 per cent

19 January 2015

J & E Hall’s new ambient beer cooler can cut pub and restaurant energy bills for cellar cooling by 40 per cent. 

The unit makes use of free cooling during winter months to allow beers to be stored at a perfect temperature. When the outside temperature is low enough, the fan-based 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: “Energy costs are a major issue for the pub and restaurant trade. It is estimated that up to a quarter of a pub’s energy bill is accounted for by its refrigeration requirements – so publicans, breweries and restaurant managers are always on the look out for a more cost effective way to cool their cellars. The new ambient beer cooler makes a significant difference and energy use can be cut by up to 40 per cent a year. 

“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 coolers contain no refrigerants. This also helps reduce servicing costs and extends the life of the main cellar cooling system.”

The ambient beer cooler operates when it’s cold outside at temperatures under 8°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. The ambient beer cooler is easy to install and fits with any make or model of cellar cooling system on the market.
