Three Tips for Increasing Efficiency after your Commercial Refrigeration Installation
Whether you need a commercial refrigeration system for your restaurant, grocery store, retail store, cafeteria or more, not only is the commercial refrigeration installation key to your success, but making sure that after the installation the system is running efficiently is even more important.
Here are a few things you or your team can do to ensure the system is running smoothly after your commercial refrigeration installation:
Install energy efficient controls
There are many ways you can set your system during the commercial refrigeration installation in order to increase its efficiency. Consider installing adaptive controls for your anti-sweat heaters. When you do this, you essentially set the anti-sweat heaters to turn on and off automatically when needed, rather than having them run constantly. Also, a simple way to save on energy bills thanks to increased efficiency is by making sure there are motion sensors for your lighting, so that they only turn on when they need to.
Give your commercial refrigeration system space
Make sure that wherever you choose to have your commercial refrigeration installation done, there is ample space around the unit so that it can essentially ‘breathe’. Air flow is vital to it ability to function properly, and when there are things blocking the air flow, the coils around the system have to work even harder to do their job. Pull it away from the wall a bit and give it a designated space that you have dedicated solely to your system.
Always vacuum the back
It’s easy for a busy kitchen to quickly collect food particles, dust, dirt, you name it, it could just take a matter or a day or two. If your team commits to always checking and cleaning the system after the commercial refrigeration installation, it will greatly help the longevity and performance.
