In the food and restaurant industry, refrigeration units and freezers are often protecting thousands of dollars of product and inventory. Making sure they are in working order at all times is also necessary to keep food fresh and customers safe. Staying on top of repairs and maintenance for a commercial freezer will increase the system’s longevity, and it is always best to deal with small repairs as they arise instead of letting them linger and get worse over time. The longer you wait to schedule commercial freezer repairs, the worse any issues can become.
The expert technicians at Coastal Refrigeration will make themselves available for repairs as soon as you see warning signs of a problem with your commercial freezers.
Types of Commercial Freezers We Repair
Commercial freezers are typically kept between -10 and 0 degrees Fahrenheit to allow for the safe storage of food and to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. This temperature is what is suggested by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), so if your commercial freezer is not able to keep up with these temperatures, you should reach out to a professional HVAC repair company. Coastal Refrigeration Corp. has worked on a variety of commercial freezer types, including:
- Commercial Reach-In Freezers
- Commercial Walk-In Freezers
- Freezer Prep Tables
- Under-Counter Freezers
- Merchandising Units / Display Freezers
Signs Your Commercial Freezer Needs Repair
Some, but not all, of the signs that your commercial freezer needs repair include the following:
Over the course of your commercial freezer’s life, you’re likely to see some frost build up inside of it over time. Thankfully, it’s usually easy to thaw and get things running smoothly again. However, if you notice that your freezer is becoming icy more frequently, you may need more than just a cleaning. Call our technicians so that we can diagnose the issue and get started on addressing it!
Increased Energy Bill
A subtle sign that something could be wrong with your commercial freezer is an increase in your energy bill. The cause of the issue is a loss of efficiency – the less efficiently your unit runs, the higher your bill. If you notice higher bills, check your freezer for evidence of warm or inconsistent internal temperatures, and then call our team.
If you see water around the bottom of your commercial freezer, it could be a sign that your unit is suffering from a leak.
The source of the leak may be weakened or worn seals, but it could also be from a slew of internal problems, so you must have it investigated immediately. The longer you let moisture build up, the greater the chance of mold or an accident.
