Commercial Remote-Cooled Ice Machines in Chicago

Each remote-cooled ice machine leases are full service.

Leases include cleanings, maintenance,
service, delivery, and installation.

Commercial ice machines are essential appliances for businesses in the food and hospitality industry. They produce ice for drinks, food displays, and other uses. However, traditional air-cooled ice machines can generate a lot of heat, which can be problematic in certain environments. That’s where remote-cooled ice machines come in.

Why Remote-Cooled Ice Machines?

Remote cooled ice machines are similar to traditional air-cooled ice machines,
but they use a remote condenser unit to cool the refrigerant instead of an air-cooled
condenser. The remote condenser unit is typically located outside the building or in
a separate mechanical room, which allows for better heat dissipation and reduces
the amount of heat generated in the room where the ice machine is located.

Benefits of leasing a Remote-Cooled Ice Machine

Energy Efficiency: Remote cooled ice machines are more
energy-efficient than traditional air-cooled ice machines.
This is because they use less energy to cool the refrigerant,
which can result in lower energy bills.

Less Heat in the Room: Remote cooled ice machines
generate less heat in the room where they are located.
This can be beneficial in environments where temperature
control is important, such as commercial kitchens.

Quieter Operation: Remote cooled ice machines are quieter
than traditional air-cooled ice machines. This is because the
remote condenser unit is located outside the building or in
a separate mechanical room, which reduces the amount of
noise generated by the ice machine.

Longer Lifespan: Remote cooled ice machines typically have
a longer lifespan than traditional air-cooled ice machines.
This is because they generate less heat and are less prone to
overheating, which can cause damage to the machine over time.
