Three reasons for commercial freezer service and repair
It requires a lot of hard work to keep your commercial freezers running properly. The various components that pump hot air out of your freezer compartment must all be working correctly to keep your goods cool. When just one of these components fails, the entire freezer might not work.
Checking on your freezers is difficult to do if you don’t have the time or the experience in dealing with these complicated machines. Fortunately, there are experts like our team at Source Refrigeration who can do this for you.
Routine commercial freezer services can help prevent costly disasters from developing. An expert can inspect your system for the signs of any issues and can clean dirt and grime off the various components of your freezer.
There are many issues that can affect your commercial freezer unit. Below are three of the most common ones you might encounter if you do not regularly service your freezer.
1. Door is not sealing
It may go without saying that a freezer door that will not seal properly is a problem. A door that will not seal allows all of the cool air to leak out. This makes your refrigeration system have to work harder and consume more power to keep the air cool—or worse, it may not keep your goods cold at all.
2. Water is leaking
Water leaks often occur as the result of a broken hose, clogged drain or busted gasket. Water leaks can cause your utilities bills to go straight up, as well as other problems. Water puddles can be a slipping hazard in areas of foot traffic. If water builds up inside the unit, it can lead to rust, mold or electrical hazards.
3. Frost is building up
It’s normal to observe some small amounts of frost in your freezer, but it shouldn’t look like a winter wonderland in there. A thick layer of frost or ice can actually insulate your freezer from being able to pump out heat.
Frost buildup is often the symptom of an issue such as a clogged drain or a broken door seal that is letting in too much humidity from the outside.
