Protect Your Commercial Minnesota Refrigeration Equipment With Routine Maintenance

February, 2014 by Alma Abell

Commercial refrigeration is the main aspect of HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) that deals with the refrigeration and freezer technology in restaurants, hospitals and many other service industries. Refrigeration can also be used to cool chemical processes, maintain long term freezer storage systems and a great many other tasks. Servicing these devices takes special skills that are a little different than those required for regular air conditioning or household refrigerators. Part of the difficulty often comes from the sheer scale of certain commercial equipment, however, the rest of the problem stems from the twenty four hour reliability requirements that many Minnesota Refrigeration devices require.

For example, the bulk of commercial refrigeration is in the food service industry where storage requirements can be very specific. Walk in coolers and freezer units must maintain a certain range of temperatures even while people are accessing them at all times of the day or night. This same importance can be applied to Minnesota Refrigeration devices installed in hospitals, grocery stores or anywhere that perishable items are stored. If this equipment should fail at any time the business could lose thousands of dollars in inventory before the problem is fixed.

To avoid these types of disasters it is best to have your HVACR equipment serviced on a regular basis. Service times will depend on the equipment installed, that equipment’s expected use and reliability factors as well as the agreements between the service company and your business. For instance, many newer commercial refrigeration systems don’t require constant pampering while older devices may demand more maintenance or replacement parts for best performance.

Ultimately, all refrigeration equipment will age and fail. At this point it may be in your best interest to have these systems completely replaced. The real problem with buying new commercial refrigeration systems is the expense. Modern, efficient refrigeration units can be very expensive even though the long range costs can be absorbed over the life of the products. Selecting a product to meet your current and future needs requires a company like Altemp Mechanical Inc. that is skilled in both measurement and installation of a variety of refrigeration units.
