DENVER — Coolerado announced that Office Depot Inc., a leading provider of office supplies and services, has selected Coolerado’s line of air conditioners to be part of its stores’ HVAC system design. By installing Coolerado, Office Depot expects its stores to become significantly more energy efficient and improve indoor air quality for customers and associates.
“We take energy efficiency and air quality very seriously at Office Depot and we are pleased to work with Coolerado to raise both to new heights,” said Yalmaz Siddiqui, senior director of environmental strategy at Office Depot. “Coolerado has exceeded our expectations as we continue to make intelligent, high ROI, green investments in our buildings and pass those benefits along to our customers and the communities where they live.”
Coolerado air conditioners reduce cooling costs using a multi-patented and proprietary cooling technology called the Maisotsenko Cycle. Office Depot will add these air conditioners to a select number of stores, working in conjunction with existing, traditional HVAC systems. In this configuration, Coolerado said the existing rooftop units (RTUs) will run half as long as they would without the Coolerado units. This will translate to a 50 percent reduction in compressor run time, which will significantly reduce electricity consumption. The Coolerado units will often be able to hold the cooling setpoint of the building on their own, even during peak usage times.
In addition to energy efficiency, the Coolerado units constantly introduce fresh air into the building, which helps improve IAQ, increase customer comfort, and promote better employee and customer health. The Coolerado units are also expected to allow for greater flexibility in maintenance scheduling and cost reduction in the existing RTUs’ servicing and repairs.
“Office Depot is very progressive in their approach towards efficiency and sustainability and we are delighted that Coolerado has been selected to help them accomplish their goals,” said Tom Teynor, CEO of Coolerado.
