Optimization Solutions for

Small Business

Too many small businesses are forced to live or die by what's left in the register at the end of the day. NRM can help slash your commercial electric bill via your refrigeration's energy usage (sometimes 50%) to put more money in your pocket, and ease the burden of rising operating costs.

We know you pride yourself on being a Jack-of-all-trades

We also know that trying to be an expert at everything can be overwhelming. Complex and demanding systems such as walk-in coolers and freezers end up in the “as long as it’s running, it’s fine” category. But sub-optimal operation not only affects product quality and safety, it also robs you of profits by requiring more energy to run than it should. Our optimizations can identify and correct most inefficiencies in your system's performance, which means you'll immediately see a noticeable difference. When perishables are at risk and the systems fail, that's a problem that "can't wait until Monday."

Our controls exist to provide some financial relief against thin margins

We know how important it is to be cost-effective while driving profitability, especially in the arena of small-business retail. As you're likely aware from looking at your commercial electric bill, walk-in coolers and freezers tend to be significant energy hogs. Not only can our controls likely put the wasted money of that unnecessary energy consumption back in your register, they'll help you stay ahead of operational problems, avoiding costly emergency maintenance calls. It's pretty simple: the older your system, the higher the odds it could benefit from optimization.

User-friendliness is the driving force behind everything we do

Controlling and monitoring temperatures of walk-in or reach-in coolers and freezers should be as convenient for you as your services are for your customers. It's been our goal since day one to provide a solution that was simple to use, clear in the information it provides, and accessible to everyone from hourly worker to your lifelong refrigeration tech. Following the installation, we'll train and support your employees of choice in how the controls add value to your daily operations. And if you have a question, our knowledgable experts are here to help, along with an online library of how-to videos.

I am very happy with both the product and the achieved energy savings. NRM’s solution was appealing to me because of the potential long-term benefit — after five years, I’ll have retained almost $20,000 in wasted utility costs. Through my utility provider's small business program, NRM was able to get me a $6,000 incentive, which was more than half of the project’s cost. This really helped make the decision easy!"

NRM's optimizations are custom tailored to your business' specific cooling requirements. CoolTrol, our award-winning smart controller, is the backbone of every solution, providing year-over-year benefit.

NRM's award-winning smart controls, CoolTrol

I was very skeptical at first because a lot of companies offer to save you money but don’t. With NRM, however, I noticed savings from day one. This is especially true in the winter, when I can bring the cold air from outside into my cooler. My compressor remains off, and my evaporator fans run less, so I’m saving money every single day. And I haven’t had one issue with the controls in the 13 years I’ve had them. If you see NRM, go for it. It’s not bogus."
