Breakdowns can cost thousands of dollars not just in the cost to replace parts and equipment, but also in food waste and downtime during peak operation times.
Regularly scheduled maintenance can extend the life of your equipment but can also remedy small problems before they become large ones.
Schedule Comprehensive Maintenance Four Times a Year
Refrigeration experts recommend performing a comprehensive maintenance schedule on a quarterly basis. However, once a month the evaporator should be checked to spot any ice build-up as well as checking gaskets, door hardware, and drains to clear any clogs. This can be done easily without the help of a refrigeration technician.
Plan the Timing of Your Maintenance
Don't schedule your maintenance near any major events in case any big issues arise. If repairs are needed they can then be made to avoid major disruptions to your business.
- Clean Coils
- Clean Fan Blades
- Check Refrigerant Levels
- Check Suction Line Function & Insulation
- Clear Drain Lines
- Examine Parts for Wear and Tear
- Check Electrical Connections
- Test thermometers and recalibrate
- Test Compressor Function
Regular inspections save money. The majority of issues that can occur in your commercial refrigeration can make your system work harder and hike energy costs while increasing the frequency of service calls. Unresolved problems often cause costly breakdowns during peak operational periods and sometimes
a complete system failure.
