Why Commercial Coolrooms and Freezers Must Work in Tip-Top Condition During the Holiday Season

16 October 2019

During the holiday season, freezers and coolrooms are placed under extraordinary stress. Epoxy-coated steel shelves are overburdened with packages of seasonal veggies. Inside a freezer, wire racks creak under the weight of frozen turkeys and joints of honey ham. Remember, family members all around the globe are heading home for the holidays, and they’re expecting the kind of supermarket-purchased meals that can put them in a food-induced coma for days.

Avoid Holiday-Stuffed Commercial Coolrooms

While a supermarket or restaurant supply manager works hard to make sure a walk-in coolroom doesn’t become overloaded, there’s a supply and demand issue to address. A celebration of some sort is coming, and the business manager in charge of the whole operation wants to be prepared for the big parties that will be going on during this busy period. The problem is, by filling a coolroom to capacity with cold food, a coolroom that’s already working hard, well, the refrigeration unit that’s responsible for cooling the walk-in chamber will be forced to work harder, much harder. If this is the case, use an intelligent cooler management plan to spread out the load among all available coolrooms.

Conducting Freezer and Coolroom Tune-Ups

What if a commercial operation only has access to a limited number of cold rooms? Just as alarmingly, what if a walk-in freezer, loaded with chunks of frozen turkey and ham, is all by its lonesome self? If the sealed enclosures are properly insulated and the refrigeration equipment is functioning at its tip-top best, the extra load can be managed. To confirm the support of this much system overhead, diligent business owners consult professional coolroom repair services. Hopefully, the units in question will receive a solid thumbs-up, which will mean they’re equipped to handle the temporarily levied system overhead. If the gear and enclosure insulation aren’t in any condition to cope with the seasonal load, a full tune-up will most likely be recommended.

It’s a busy holiday period. Folk are out shopping for their Christmas meal or sitting down at restaurants while someone else does all the hard work. The point is that coolroom managers plan for such periods of extreme activity. They purchase extra frozen food. If the gear then fails, let’s not visualize the losses, for the mere thought of all that lost holiday meat and veggies could make a commercial business owner go very pale. To protect that seasonal investment, to safeguard the stockpiled poultry and seasonal side dishes, refrigeration compressors and coils must be in pristine condition. Basically, commercial operations should act proactively by having all coolrooms and freezers serviced before a holiday rush begins.
