Demandside Energy Solutions was contacted to give an estimate and come up with alternative solutions to their HVAC/R updating needs. Demandside decided that implementation of the Arctic Gator system was the best fit and gave them a price quote of $30,000.00, including labor costs. With the Arctic Gator in place, the system was allowed to decrease compressor usage from 5 to 2 compressors.
