Controlling Costs through Proper maintenance

An ice rink's operating costs can be kept low through proper operation and maintenance by keeping in mind these five areas:


  • Climate: external climate will affect operation of the entire ice arena
  • Temperature & Humidity: If these can be kept under control, a lot of money can be saved
  • Refrigeration: One of the biggest money-eaters in an operational ice rink, must be properly adjusted and dialed in
  • Ice Maintenance: How well the ice is kept and maintained has a major influence on costs
  • Energy Flows: these can be optimized to maximize efficiency
