Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling Units to be Distributed to Fast Food Restaurants

Budderfly, an Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) company, announced a high-volume contract that will help fast food restaurants lower their emissions sooner.

A contract was signed with Carrier, a heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions company, to deploy thousands of its most efficient commercial packaged rooftop units to small and medium-sized businesses.

The units will be sent mostly to fast food, quick service and casual dining restaurants. This agreement will enable Budderfly’s customers to start saving and accelerate the reduction of their carbon emissions.

Budderfly purchased more than 2,000 WeatherExpert® ultra high-efficiency single-packaged rooftop HVAC units with Puron® (R-410A) refrigerant from Carrier to be delivered in the second quarter of this year. 

This design is Carrier’s most efficient commercial packaged rooftop unit produced and boasts some of the industry’s highest Integrated Energy Efficiency Ratios (IEERs) available. The units exceed several high-efficiency benchmarks, including the Department of Energy’s Advanced RTU Challenge, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 90.1, ENERGY STAR® efficiency thresholds and Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) criteria.

“With this agreement, small and medium-sized enterprises’ will have greater access to high-efficiency heating and cooling systems,” said Al Subbloie, Founder & CEO of Budderfly in a statement. “The few available units often go to the highest bidder, making it hard for small and medium-sized businesses, including many fast-food franchises, to access these units. With our high-volume commitment on behalf of these businesses, Budderfly will be able to offer greater access and shorter installation timeframes to our customers.”

Budderfly’s solutions are provided at zero upfront cost to the customer since cost savings are generated from the energy efficiency upgrades, as well as from managing, monitoring and optimizing Budderfly customers' energy use and demand.
