Dealing with commercial refrigeration equipment can be like putting together a jigsaw puzzle, or playing a game of Tetris.
In other words, there can be lots of moving parts. In fact, there are literally lots of moving parts, but we’ll get to that a bit later.
The key is that good professionals can come in and help you to get your systems back in decent condition and make sure that you get what you need out of your commercial refrigeration system.
How they do that, though, is through a sort of complex process of diagnosis and repair.
Fans, Compressors, Etc.
The technician has to go over the whole system and look at all of its elements and components. Something like a bad fan motor or damage to a compressor can be a bigger problem than it seems at the outset. Sometimes you get into the system and realize that there were pre-existing problems that caused a secondary outcome that eventually led someone to call a company like us. In other words, problems can be lurking for a while before they become evident, or before systems actually fail.
Obviously, another major problem in refrigeration has to do with the chemicals that are used to cool the air.
There has been a particular process where the federal government has decommissioned certain refrigerants over time. That means that it’s not just good enough to put something “back like it was” and keep it running. If a system fails while running on an outdated refrigerant, that means professionals are usually going to need to upgrade the system in very significant ways.
That’s really counterintuitive to people who are used to just fixing something by making it the way it was. It can lead to a lot of thought about cost and how to best address problems with refrigeration in general. But the DIY approach is hardly ever recommended, partly because of these federal regulations, and partly because the process itself is so precise. Take a refrigerant leak, which can happen in a way that’s really off the radar. By the time it becomes evident it may have caused other problems. That’s something that most people can’t address on a DIY basis.
Most commercial refrigeration systems are absolutely essential to the business in question. For example, in restaurants, any insufficient refrigeration can result in problems with food left at improper temperatures and violations of perishable food guidelines.
So when it’s time to fix what’s wrong with refrigeration systems, call us. Our people will go to work calmly and confidently, having been trained in all sorts of manufacturers systems and the general process of diagnosis and repair. They will competently explain all of the customer’s options for upgrading systems as necessary. And they’ll contribute to keeping everything running smoothly for your enterprise.
