How to Choose the Right Refrigeration Contractor

Commercial refrigeration equipment  will eventually have problems. Even with the best maintenance, parts may still require replacement or upgrades as the equipment ages. 

Regular maintenance ensures that the refrigerator or freezer cools properly, runs efficiently, and resolves small issues before they become large ones. When your equipment isn’t working effectively, you need to call a refrigeration technician.

Commercial refrigeration units sometimes need complicated repairs. Choosing a technician with the experience and knowledge to correctly diagnose and solve the problems is essential.

Hiring a tech based solely on rates, availability, or other unimportant criteria can be a gamble that can cost you much more in the long run.

Always hire a tech who has experience working specifically with commercial refrigeration equipment.  Ask for references that you can call or email to learn more about the company.

Do You Need a Floral Cooler?

Florist need special refrigeration units to keep their bouquets at their peak. Flowers tend to lose their freshness and wilt quickly without a refrigeration system. 

Floral refrigeration is a specific type of refrigeration technology. Most flowers in shops are fresh cut and need careful preservation to avoid wilting.  Floral coolers that utilize high humidity and low air flow protect the petals, leaves, and stems of flowers and help prolong the life of cut flowers.

A floral cooler or refrigerator should have a temperature of between 34 and 36 degrees Fahrenheit for cut flowers that are in a hydrating solution, although many units hover at around 38 F. Be careful. Temperatures that fluctuate 5 degrees plus or minus of 38 F can destroy or shorten the lives of flowers.

Florists can choose from a  wide variety of styles designed to match different applications found in the flower industry.  Walk-in coolers and refrigerated display cases are just a few of the options.

Floral refrigeration units are fitted with temperature humidity controls to maintain an ideal environment for fresh cut flowers. Controls let you set a specific temperature and humidity, or even add circulation within the unit.

Considering a floral refrigeration unit? Here are a few thing to consider.
What size unit do you need? Small floral shops may want smaller units depending on their volume of business. If you store bulk inventory, a larger unit may be needed.
Do you need a display or storage unit? If you have bulk flowers and a small retail space to display your product, think about a storage unit.  These are great also, if your business is based on internet sales.  Display units are great if you don't have a lot of inventory at one time. 
How much maintenance is involved with the unit? Maintaining your refrigeration is important in prolonging the life of your equipment. Factor in potential repairs, upgrades, or expansions in the future when selecting the equipment that is right for your operation.
