Pubs, Clubs and Restaurants


Pubs, clubs and restaurants face particular challenges when it comes to using energy efficiently as possible. While the environments in this sector change radically from one business to the next – as do the opening hours – the quality of the customers experience is key.

Heating, lighting and less obvious functions like cooling and refrigeration all have huge roles to play in keeping your customers happy – so choosing the right equipment and controlling it is vital.
