Today, most businesses rely on commercial freezers to turn a profit, without these, business is dead in the water. For businesses like floral sops, bakeries, coffee houses, restaurants, bars, medical laboratories, farms and many, many more that need commercial walk-in freezers to store perishable stocks such as food. This makes maintaining walk-in freezers of paramount importance for companies that depend on them. Not only is freezer performance important for preserving perishables, but for keeping electrical costs down as well.

Is Your Freezer Performance Costing You Money?

When your business’s freezer is not maintaining or achieving the proper temperature, stocks can get damaged or not last as long as they should and spoil. Or, your electrical bill is nearly twice as much as it normally is, that means your freezer’s performance is definitely a money problem. There are a few little known factors about that can affect your freezer performance; knowing them can help improve its efficiency, and at the same time identify what is causing your freezer to not run like new.

Bad rubber door seal – Keeping the cold air inside your freezer is important, because when the cold air escapes, your freezer has to work more to replace it. The biggest loss of cold is from old or damaged rubber door seals. Cold air slowly escapes, and then your freezer’s motor has to work harder than normal to compensate. Replacing the rubber seal around your door can save you ‘big’ bucks in electrical costs yearly.

Condenser coils – Because condenser coils are responsible for removing heat, not placing other heat generating equipment near to them can help them perform better. And, because dust can accumulate on them over time, cleaning them up can also greatly help your refrigerator motor to work more efficiently; achieving the desired temperature faster and using less electricity.

Age – How old is your freezer? If maintaining or achieving the desired temperature is not possible, and your freezer is more than 10 years old, then you may have more than one internal problem, especially if your freezer hasn’t been serviced frequently. Parts get old; they wear down and need to be replaced or repaired. Call a professional refrigerator repair and maintenance service to inspect your freezer that is the best solution. You may be surprised at what they find.

There are many other factors that affect the performance of your freezer and most of them involve simple, regular maintenance by a professional refrigeration company. Regular freezer maintenance is the absolute best way to ensure that your freezer runs like new, and last as long as it can.
