Lower your energy rates with restaurant refrigeration service and repair
Running a restaurant comes with a lot of challenges. Your commercial refrigeration should not be one of them. Commercial refrigeration requires a lot of energy to operate, which can be expensive in the long run. You can lower your energy rates with commercial refrigeration services, which can save you a lot on your energy bills.
Here are some of the ways you can optimize the energy consumption rate of your commercial refrigeration:
1. Schedule routine maintenance
Routine maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of your refrigeration system and reduce the amount of energy your system consumes. A commercial refrigeration professional can thoroughly examine your refrigeration unit for potential issues. He or she can develop solutions for these issues to keep them from developing into expensive problems.
Routine maintenance usually includes a deep cleaning of your refrigeration casing and unit. This can reduce the buildup of dirt and grime that impede the performance of your refrigeration components.
2. Look for retrofitting services
Commercial refrigeration specialists can provide retrofitting services to replace old components with new ones. New refrigeration components tend to be more energy efficient. They also last longer and put less strain on your refrigeration system.
Many components of your refrigeration can be retrofitted. Have a commercial refrigeration professional visit your restaurant to determine what options are best for you.
3. Optimize your kitchen layout
People use the phrase, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen” for a reason. The appliances in your kitchen, including your refrigeration, produce a lot of heat. This heat makes it more difficult for your refrigerator to maintain the desired temperature. Your refrigerator has to work harder than necessary in hot environments, which drives up your energy consumption rate.
You can help reduce the impact of heat on your refrigeration unit by optimizing the layout of your kitchen. Keep your refrigeration systems away from major heat sources like ovens, stoves and dishwashers.
