Another energy-saving initiative implemented in all AB stores is the exploitation of the heat expelled in the cooling cycle for use in heating water. Furthermore, the cooling cycle is monitored by electronic means, primarily to achieve smooth operation and secondly to ensure proper energy consumption of the machinery.
In addition, the company fully complies with EU regulations concerning the use of more environmentally-friendly coolants. The Freon is collected and stored so that such dangerous gases are not released into the atmosphere.
Lastly, fridges and freezers in the stores are fitted with doors for further energy savings.
