NAFEM Helps Make Energy Star Audits More Efficient

To make products better, faster, and customer affordable Food Warming Equipment Co. needs to make units at a high level of efficiency. Part of this efficiency is the Energy Star rating that FWE is proud to have adorned on their products. Energy Star is a program that manufacturers volunteer to enter that helps both companies and individuals save money through efficient energy. The benefit is two-fold, first is the cost savings on your energy bill and second is environmental protection from the same energy efficiency. 

NAFEM has been discussing with the Environmental Protection Agency to aid the U.S. Government in making the Energy Star audits even more efficient by conducting audits through a third-party. This process was first only approved on steam cookers. In 2018, the Department of Energy is beginning to look into expanding the program to other food service equipment. Government funding prevents the DOE to implement this change. Fortunately, NAFEM is working to expand the program.  Read about it on NAFEM’s website:

FWE boasts a large array of products with the Energy Star rating. Visit our webpage at Here, you can view our most popular models with the Energy Star rating.

Food Warming Equipment Co. (FWE), adding 

More Heated Holding Mobile Carts to its ENERGY STAR® lineup.

MTU-12D Dutch Door Energy Star Approved
Moisture-Temp MTU-12D Dutch Door is Energy Star Approved

ENERGY STAR® is the trusted symbol for energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR® label was created to reduce pollutants, carcinogens and greenhouse gas emissions by the inefficient use of energy.

With even more specially configured access utilizing Pass Through and Dutch Door designs, customers may now purchase any number of FWE’s most popular Heated Holding Mobile Cabinet solutions, knowing with full confidence that they have now been awarded a certificate of compliance to meet ENERGY STAR® standards.

These new configurations are now part of the growing stable of FWE products that include top selling Heated Holding Carts and Cabinet solutions which have earned the privilege of displaying the ENERGY STAR® logo.  Pass Through access (doors on front and back) are one of the most popular configurations FWE can provide on the Universal Heated Server UHS12, Moisture-Temp MTU12 , and the PHU12 Heated Proofer cabinet.

The Dutch Door design puts two doors on one compartment (upper and lower).  This will dramatically reduce heat loss when opening the cabinet to access trays, pans or plated food inside.  Less initial heat loss means quicker recovery to set temperature keeping overall temperature and moisture within a tighter range.  This translates into energy savings and assures that food is kept at the proper, consistent temperature without drastic drops in heat and no loss of quality.

ENERGY STAR® recognition is an indicator to consumers wishing to meet standards that help save money and protect the environment.  Consumers, using FWE’s ENERGY STAR® Heated Holding cabinets, can now purchase and deploy energy efficient products that operate with energy efficiency.   Consumers know, with certainty, that these products will provide savings on energy bills without a sacrifice to features and performance.

FWE products earn the ENERGY STAR® label by meeting the rigorous series of tests and standards set forth in ENERGY STAR® program requirements.   The United States EPA establishes these specifications on the a set of key guiding principles which include, “significant energy savings nationwide”, “deliver the features and performance… addition to increased energy efficiency”, “product energy consumption and performance… verified”, and more.

EnergyStar-UL-ConformanceFWE products have always been built with high standards for durability and quality of performance which ensure that there is no tradeoff between the energy efficiency and overall performance customers have come to expect.

The use of quality insulation from top to bottom reduces heat loss from the base and other areas prone to leaking.  Tight seals and precision bends are conducive to reducing heat loss and make for even heat distribution and humidity containment.  Excellent controls, electronics and sensors also make for precision adjustments to maintain temperatures within an exceptionally tight range.
