Exclusive Technology

The Eco Cooler uses outside cold air to refrigerate your walk-in cooler. The unit uses sophisticated technology that will optimize the cooling of your walk-in cooler from late fall to early spring.

Commercial Grade

All components used are of the finest quality commercial grade available and will provide years of trouble-free service. The fan is Energy Star® compliant and comes with a five-year factory warranty. Fan is rated at 483 cfm @ free air. The fan will fully exchange a normal walk-in (8’ x10’ x 7’, or 560 cubic feet) approximately every 1.15 minutes.

The Temperature Control Unit has a three-year parts warranty and allows for precise temperature control within +/- 1/2 degrees F.

Backup System

The Eco Cooler is a stand-alone unit and does not connect in any way to the existing refrigeration system.

Reduces Wear and Tear

The Eco Cooler will greatly reduce wear on your walk-in compressor and reduce costly repairs.

Foods Last Longer and Taste Better

Foods will taste better and last longer because clean cold air is continually cycled through the walk-in cooler. By eliminating “bad air,” foods will not spoil as readily.
