Two signs you need to repair your commercial freezer
Grocery stores, restaurants and convenience stores all rely on some form of commercial freezer. However, many store owners only recognize the need for commercial freezer repairs when their system shuts down completely. To help you catch the need for system repairs more quickly, there are two signs to look for in your commercial freezers.
- Can’t maintain temperature
Commercial freezers are designed to maintain a specifically set temperature. In fact, this ability is what allows them to store food items at a safe temperature. It’s also a feature your food retail business relies on to ensure you can serve your customers.
One sign that your commercial freezer may have an issue that needs repaired is that it can’t maintain the set temperature. This issue can be caused by many different factors. For instance, the door seals on your freezer may be old and allowing cold air to leak out. You may also have a more serious issue such as a broken compressor. No matter what’s causing your system to have difficulty holding in cold air, the fact that it can’t is a signal that you need to have it repaired.
2. Using too much energy
Another problem that should indicate to you that your commercial freezer needs repaired is if it’s using too much energy. Of course, energy is required to run your systems, and it’s natural for energy usage to be higher and lower throughout the day. However, higher than normal spikes in usage may also indicate that your system has a problem that needs to be addressed.
One example of such a problem is dirty or damaged fan motors or blades. Such issues will cause your cooling fans to work harder to cool your system, and this leads to increased energy usage. While fan issues can be relatively minor, you may also have a more serious problem with your energy management system (EMS). A problem with this system’s settings or components could be causing multiple systems in your store to use excessive energy.
