Some businesses heavily rely on their freezers, due to the fact that it’s going to keep vital ingredients safe and at the temperature that customers want.
That ice cream that your customers desperately want in the summertime is not going to be a big hit if it’s not kept at that perfectly frozen temperature. This is where we depend on our freezing technology to get the job done.
Did you know that commercial freezers in West Palm Beach, FL function very similarly to refrigerators and air conditioners? It’s all about moving heat away from a space with the help of refrigerant, evaporation, and condensation.
If there’s a problem, like the fact that your freezer isn’t meeting temperature demands, or it’s getting too cold, then you might be in need of repairs.
Let’s discuss the potential problems that can come up with your commercial freezer, and get you the help you need.
The Freezer Is Shutting Down
Here’s a problem, you don’t have access to a freezer at all! If you’re frantically searching online for help because your freezer has just abruptly shut down while it’s plugged in and it won’t turn on, then you’ve definitely come to the right place.
Freezers can last a very long time, and the technology used to make them has been around for a while. This means that they rarely just shut down and they more often last longer than you think they will.
So, if your system is abruptly shutting down, it might be due to the fact that the electrical grid that it’s plugged into has some problems. For instance, you might need to upgrade the outlet or panel that is sending power to the system, since it could be tripping circuits causing a loss of electricity in that area of your business or restaurant.
The Freezer Is Soaking Up too Much Electricity
Uh oh, that’s not good. If you’re seeing a spike in your electricity bill that isn’t due to increased demand for frozen products, then something is wrong.
Is someone using your freezer incorrectly? Modern freezers have certain guidelines depending on how they’re constructed. For instance, chest freezers can be opened for a while and barely lose any cooling due to the fact that ambient heat rises away from the chilled space.
Walk-in freezers or door freezers, for instance, need to be quickly closed when an employee is using them, otherwise, they’ll stay on trying to freeze an uninsulated space.
Check to make sure your freezer isn’t running all the time due to incorrect usage. Once you know that’s not the case, you should call us. You might have a refrigerant leak or a problem with the internal freezer components.
The Freezer Isn’t Meeting Temperature Demands
That’s not good! A commercial freezer with poor temperature regulation can make customers sick and cause food to spoil. Certain goods must be kept at freezing or below to ensure they’re usable. If your freezer isn’t making that demand even once, then you could potentially have a refrigerant leak or a system that’s on its way out.
