Grow your business with Restaurant Customers
The high cost of procrastination
Unplanned system downtime can close a restaurant indefinitely and cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue. You can help customers avoid the high cost of downtime by encouraging them to take a proactive approach to service and maintenance. Regular maintenance can reduce HVAC equipment breakdowns by up to 95%—and keep equipment at peak energy efficiency, too. The simple task of cleaning or replacing filters regularly can reduce the equipment’s energy use by as much as 15%. 5
Long-term business success comes from helping your customers avoid downtime drama. You want to become the partner they trust for future needs. And let’s be honest, which would you rather do: handle maintenance during the work week, or interrupt your family’s Thanksgiving dinner to rescue your customer with a restaurant full of their angry customers?
Connectivity-enabled remote check-ups are a great way to grow your relationship beyond the typical twice-annual maintenance visits. Offering an enhanced connectivity program, in which experts monitor customers’ equipment in real time, can reduce overall maintenance costs for customers by up to 30%.6
Navigating what’s next
Today more than ever, running a restaurant is more complicated than anyone can handle alone. The challenges are constantly changing. Working with our contractor partners, Trane has helped restaurants shut down and restart systems with a new understanding of the importance of proper ventilation strategies. We know how to help offset rising energy costs with more effective control strategies.
Today the focus is on meeting Department of Energy 2023 Efficiency standards, and decarbonization—decreasing or eliminating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that come from a building. We can help buildings decarbonize in two ways:
- Improve energy efficiency. Consuming less electricity reduces indirect emissions.
- Electrification. The process of switching building energy sources from on-site fossil fuels to electricity reduces direct emissions.
The movement to decarbonization is growing fast. 47 states and 9 provinces in Canada so far have established incentives for using heat pumps in buildings.7 13 states have incentives in place for all-electric heating8 and more than 20 states have enacted mandatory decarbonization efforts for buildings.9
You can count on Trane to help you stay on top of HVAC industry evolutions. We are continuously introducing innovative solutions and revising contractor favorites to meet new industry standards and changing customer preferences.
Cheers to your future.
