Blog : Favorite Foods Increases Warehouse Efficiency

By Rich | Jul 21, 2015 | in

After recently installing a major solar initiative of 572 solar panels, Favorite Foods, a commercial food distributor located in Somersworth NH, is taking yet one more step toward increased energy efficiency. Not only does Favorite Foods use the sun to save on its electric bills, they have recently implemented a venting system that uses external air to assist in their cooling refrigeration system when temperatures and humidity are optimal.

The system essentially is a series of climate controlled vents and fans in the cooling areas that automatically draw in and vent external air when temperature and humidity are optimal. This lessens the burden on the HVAC system by using mother nature to carry some of the workload, ultimately increasing the overall efficiency of the cooling system.

Favorite Foods, headquartered at 29 Interstate Drive, distributes a variety of products and services to local restaurants within a 60-mile radius around Portsmouth, which encompasses parts of Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

"We're always looking for ways to be more green, and this is another step forward in that direction," according to a release by President Chris Barstow, who co-founded the company in 1978.

Favorite Foods is a long time member of the Green Alliance, a sustainable business network that is also based in Portsmouth and serves the Seacoast area.
