Continental Refrigerator has made it their mission to reduce our carbon footprint and promote eco-friendly practices, setting the standard for environmental responsibility in commercial refrigeration. Embracing sustainable solutions is essential for long term viability and competitiveness in an increasingly environmentally conscious world, especially considering the significant environmental impact of the restaurant industry.


Enhanced Efficiency

Continental Refrigerator is recognized for its commitment to delivering enhanced efficiency while using low-GWP refrigerants and insulation in product design. Since 1992, Energy Star and its partners helped American businesses save more than $500 billion in energy costs. Continental has a long-standing partnership with Energy Star and was their 2020 partner of the year. Energy Star certified products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE), ensuring that equipment operates at maximum efficiency while minimizing energy costs. Continental has over 200 certified energy star models, more than any refrigeration manufacturer in the industry.


Environmentally Conscious

Prioritizing environmental sustainability, Continental Refrigerator incorporates natural, environmentally safe, and high efficiency R-290 refrigerant in its equipment. R-290 is a hydrocarbon refrigerant with low global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential (ODP) that reduces greenhouse gases and saves energy, making it an eco-friendly alternative to traditional refrigerants. 


High-Quality Engineering

Although their products are energy-star certified, they do not sacrifice quality. Continental products are made with durable, high quality stainless steel that is built to last for years of continuous use. This keeps old units and parts out of landfills, since you don't need to replace your appliances as often. They also incorporate highly efficient components such as compressors, motors, and fans, along with advanced insulation materials that reduce heat transfer, improve temperature retention, and maximize efficiency while reducing energy costs.


Qualify for Rebates

Not only does Continental Refrigerator lower your energy bills and reduce your impact on the climate, but you can save even more by qualifying for rebates and tax credits.
