Commercial refrigeration doors: Maintaining them is a must
There are many parts of commercial refrigeration systems that can be causing your equipment to use more energy than necessary if they aren’t properly maintained. Such parts can also dramatically increase your energy costs. One component that may cause such issues if not maintained regularly is commercial refrigeration system doors.

Two reasons poorly maintained commercial refrigeration system doors could be costing you
Of all the many components in commercial refrigeration systems, doors may seem fairly simple. However, there are three commercial refrigeration system door parts that can cost you if they aren’t maintained regularly.
For instance, all the doors on your systems have hinges that allow them to open and close. Over time, the hinges can become loose, which moves the door out of its proper alignment. These doors also use latches that can become damaged, and this may prevent your doors from closing properly. Finally, each of the doors on your system has a door seal designed to help keep cold air inside the equipment. However, these seals can become brittle, which may lead to cracks that reduce seal effectiveness. They may also get excessively dirty or be damaged in other ways.
The problem with any of these minor door issues is they can lead to serious trouble for your business. One way damaged door components could be costing you is they’ll let cold air leak out of your system. This could cause a decrease in temperature that may cause the food stored in your systems to spoil. A second way poorly maintained doors could be costing you is by forcing your systems to use more energy in an attempt to maintain their set temperature.
To help you avoid issues like these, you should consider a preventative maintenance plan from Source Refrigeration. Our team can help you maintain the doors of your equipment and other important system components such as:
