Green Initiatives

Go Green!

Tafco is the industry leader in quality and energy efficiency. We take great pride in producing walk-in coolers, freezers, and refrigerated warehouses that will provide many years of service and savings. Our refrigeration units are clearly the most efficient in the business. Pair this with our environmentally friendly CFC-free “Green” foam panels, and there is no comparison! With all the environmentally friendly changes that have been recently added to our outstanding quality walk-ins, now is a better time than ever to choose Tafco for your walk-in needs.

Tafco Eco-Temp offers a winning combination of energy savings, lower installation costs, and increased reliability. We have significantly increased the condenser surface, giving the same size condenser a 20% larger capacity. This results in a reduction of condensing temperatures and operating head pressures, which leads to an initial energy savings of up to 10%. Tafco then adds an extra sub-cooling and floating head feature to further increase your energy savings. The floating head feature provides up to 30% in additional savings in low ambient conditions.
