Office Depot selects Coolerado air conditioners

Coolerado announced that Office Depot has selected its line of air conditioners to be part of its store’s HVAC system design. By installing Coolerado, the company says Office Depot stores will become 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,” stated 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.”

Office Depot will add Coolerado air conditioners to some of its stores, working in conjunction with existing, traditional HVAC systems. In this configuration, the manufacturer claims the existing roof top units (RTUs) will run half as long as they would without the Coolerado units. This will translate to a 50% reduction in compressor run time which will significantly reduce electricity consumption. The Coolerado units are often able to hold the cooling set point of the building on their own, even during peak usage times. 

In addition to efficiency, the Coolerado units constantly introduce fresh air into the building and allow for greater flexibility in maintenance scheduling and cost reduction in 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,” stated Tom Teynor, CEO of Coolerado.
