Four reasons you need commercial refrigeration repair
Commercial refrigeration is a vital component of many industries. It’s important to keep them running properly to avoid high overhead costs. Faulty refrigeration units can result in the loss of goods or higher energy and water consumption rates.
There are a number of problems that your refrigerator may experience, especially if it is not regularly serviced. Below are four examples of common problems that many people encounter with their commercial refrigeration.
1. Water is leaking
Water leaks are a problem for a couple of reasons. First, they cause your water consumption rates to go way up, which skyrockets your utilities bill. Second, water buildup can be a hazard. Consumers or employees can slip on puddles if the leak is localized in a trafficked area. Water buildup can cause mold, electrical issues and other problems as well.
There are a few reasons your water may be leaking. One of your hoses or seals may be broken, or you may have a clogged or frozen drain.
2. Unit is making loud noises
You may want to fix your refrigerator if it’s making loud noises because the noise is a nuisance, but did you know it may also be the sign of a costly problem? If your commercial refrigerator is making a strange noise, it may be a faulty compressor or evaporator. Usually, these units are still operating, but they consume much higher amounts of power in this state.
3. Door is not sealing
A door that won’t seal can cause multiple issues. It can result in the loss of all the cool air your refrigerator has worked hard to make. Or, your refrigerator may still be producing cool air but at a much higher energy consumption rate.
In some cases of faulty sealing, you may lose products due to the inability to maintain the correct temperature in the refrigerator.
4. Frost is building up
Frost buildup may be due to a clog in the drain or to faulty seals. Frost or a layer of ice in your refrigeration units may block the circulation of the compressor. Basically, your refrigerator works by pumping heat out of the container. When frost or ice blocks the circulation, the compressor has to work harder to pump out the heat.
