In certain industries, such as the food industry, for instance, refrigeration units are critical for business. A breakdown can result in both wasted food and the loss of business opportunities. Even poor temperature control can sometimes mean spoiled food and high energy bills. Even more seriously, a failed unit can lead to health code violations and a tarnished business reputation.
Dittmer Air and Heat is the area’s top provider of restaurant refrigeration services. Here our experts discuss some of the challenges and problems that can occur in commercial refrigeration.
Commercial kitchens are often very hot. To compensate, kitchen storage areas must have large and efficient cooling systems. Commercial refrigeration systems must be able to keep up with the demands of food service kitchens. They should hold food at temperatures that limit the growth of bacteria; otherwise, it could lead to food-borne illness and health department citations.
Mismatched Units and Facilities
Ensure your facility can accommodate delivery of the unit. Large units may need offloading from the carrier onto a loading dock or space near the entrance door. Make sure to measure all doorways and passages from the receiving area to the installation point to ensure that the unit, along with any surrounding delivery materials, will fit. The receptacle should have enough power for the unit’s electrical needs. You can get the right unit from Dittmer Air and Heat, your HVAC air conditioner repair pros.
Unleveled refrigerators can have issues with internal liquids being out of place. After the refrigerator is set in place, keep it unplugged for 24 hours to allow the refrigerant, motor oil and other liquids inside it to settle. They usually slosh out of place during shipping, delivery and installation, preventing the system from holding set temperatures. Completely level the unit, using a bubble level, shims or adjustable casters as needed.
