The folks at Ice-O-Matic, makers of marvelous ice machines and dispensers, have outdone themselves yet again on the energy efficiency front. The Ice-O-Matic brand already has plenty of ice machines that are Energy Star-approved, and has recently added another to the lineup: the ICEU226A. This space-saving, ice-making beauty saves as much or more energy than its counterpart ice machines of the same capacity. In addition to its superior energy-saving capabilities, the ICEU226A has a production rate of up to 251 pounds of ice per day, interior anti-microbial protection, and an anti-corrosion stainless steel exterior. No wonder Energy Star gave it the seal of approval.
Created by the EPA, the Energy Star label encourages manufacturers to make more environmentally-friendly products and lets consumers know which products are better for the environment. Energy Star-approved products perform as well as or better than a higher energy consuming product of their kind. Ice-O-Matic has been around for more than 60 years, and has been partnering with Energy Star for 10 years. The brand currently manufactures over 30 energy-efficient models. As part of the Energy Star family, Ice-O-Matic ice machines are part of the Energy Star mission to reduce greenhouse gasses and pollutants.
