Driven by rapidly changing consumer preferences, grocery retailing has become one of the most competitive markets in the world. With new store formats emerging almost continuously and groceries being found in even non-traditional retailers like drug stores, retailers must find creative ways to re-invent themselves to win the business of fickle consumers faced with an expanding choice of grocery options. This growing need to re-merchandise themselves more frequently, coupled with a challenging economy, has led to a level of remodels never before seen in the grocery retailing industry. Add to this the desire for more energy efficient systems, and the rapid adoption of non-HCFC and natural refrigerants, and remodels mean a new approach to refrigeration and HVAC systems. From initial design concept through system start-up, Source Refrigeration & HVAC has the expertise and experience to make sure your remodel is executed flawlessly.
Just like with new construction, proper installation is critical to an efficient, effective refrigeration or HVAC system on a remodel project. At Source, we understand the critical nature of our customers' remodels and execute them with the same rigorous approach we take on new construction. With more than 40 years of installation experience installing thousands of commercial and industrial refrigeration and HVAC systems, Source ensures that every system is constructed per specifications and is operating at peak performance from the start. As we do with all of our services, we take a "total cost of ownership" approach to every remodel, helping to ensure not only a lower cost of installation, but a lower cost of operation throughout the system's life cycle.

Installing a new or remodeled refrigeration or HVAC system is a major investment. Source's exclusive Right Start™ program is designed to help you protect this investment by optimizing your system's performance during initial startup. Our team of Right Start Certified technicians is extensively trained to test, analyze and adjust your system to exact manufacturer or owner specifications to ensure ultimate performance from the beginning.
Right Start is a proprietary, comprehensive, multi-step start-up program that covers every facet of your newly installed system.
Key steps of the program include:
Whether you have a Source-installed system or one installed by another company, our Right Start process will help ensure optimum performance. Because we are vendor-neutral, our technicians can perform the Right Start process on systems containing equipment from any manufacturer. While many companies will get your system up and running after they've installed it, only Source provides a comprehensive Right Start process, performed by certified technicians, ensuring you get the performance you expect from the beginning.
In addition, because many potential problems are preempted by Right Start, future maintenance costs can be dramatically reduced. An investment in Right Start upfront means less downtime on the sales floor and a more comfortable shopping environment for your customers. Having a system that runs right from the start is a critical step in managing your system's Total Cost of Ownership.
Your refrigeration and HVAC system can account for more than half of your energy use; a system that runs "right" from the start will help effectively manage and reduce this significant cost. And of course, any reduction in energy use is a crucial part of reducing your company's overall carbon footprint.
Source's Right Start program protects your investment, helps lower your overall operating costs, and ensures you get the performance you paid for from the very beginning.
The movement to convert HCFC refrigerants to HFC refrigerants started back in 1989 when the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer first went into effect to ultimately eliminate the production and use of CFCs and HCFCs, worldwide. The protocol requires elimination of the production and use of HCFCs by 2020. In the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established specific regulations to implement the Montreal Protocol, which incorporates a "stair step" approach to eliminating HCFC production and use. The EPA has issued several more aggressive amendments to their original regulations, driven in large part by the global warming effect of HCFCs.
The most recent EPA amendment issued in January 2012, resulted in R-22 refrigerant costs doubling almost overnight! With significantly higher costs, R-22 supply shortages eminent, and 2020 right around the corner, the time to plan and execute your refrigerant conversions is now! Source is ready to work with you to develop turnkey short-term and long-term plans to convert your systems to acceptable HFCs that meet your corporate and performance objectives!Read More...

One the most effective ways to manage energy consumption in a grocery store or industrial facility is to install an Energy Management System (EMS). An EMS is the foundation of any retailer's energy and maintenance reduction strategy. Today's leading EMSs are designed to provide complete control of building and refrigeration systems including: compressor groups, condensers, walk-ins, HVAC units and lighting. In addition to monitoring and reducing energy usage across equipment types in the store, EMS also provide for a gradual, automated starting-up and stopping of energy usage at the beginning and end of a store's operating hours. These systems also control energy usage to avoid spikes in demand that are costly for both a retailer and the broader energy grid.
Benefits of an EMS are as follows:
Our Installation Team is expertly trained and experienced at installing and/or retrofitting EMS systems from all major manufacturers.
With licensed electricians on our staff, our installation teams can provide a fully integrated, turn-key solution for your projects, including all refrigeration, HVAC, dehumidification, EMS and all related electrical requirements. Truly a one-stop-shop solution for your new project or remodel!

Lighting in grocery stores represents about 13% of the electricity consumption, not including the impact on cooling loads. Lighting retrofits to LED lights can save 30 to 60 percent on lighting energy as well as 10 to 20 percent of cooling energy when compared to traditional, fluorescent lighting.
In addition to energy savings, today's LED lighting plays an important role in creating an inviting shopping experience and increasing sales through better product illumination. Advances in LED lighting technology now offer grocery stores an option to fluorescent lighting that produces better lighting, especially in refrigerated display cases because LED lights perform very well in cold temperatures. In fact, research has shown that customers find LED lighting in freezers to be "brighter, more even, more appealing and more comfortable." Packaging and food colors are brighter and more attractive to shippers. Additionally, LED Tube lights will only need to be replaced once every 10 years reducing maintenance and recycling costs.
Whether part of a new design, a remodel or a Door Retrofit program, the Source installation team has the experience to execute the installation of your LED lighting.
