Facts: Refrigeration Maintenance

We live in a world where everything is at our fingertips, it’s so easy to buy a new product, run it into the ground until it gives up and replace it without a thought. Avoiding maintenance to save money may seem like a smart move, however, in the long run it isn’t cost effective. Regular maintenance can prolong the efficiency and lifetime of your refrigeration and so if you run a business, it’s definitely something to consider.

When you purchase any refrigeration product, the cost is obviously a big part and so most people will have a budget in mind from the get-go. Not only will you need to consider the cost of purchasing the product but also how much it will cost to run. As with the nature of fridges, they run 24/7 and so you must consider electrical costs. Ensuring that your equipment you choose is best suited to your needs and that it is installed correctly by a knowledgeable team is vital for keeping costs down.

Working with a reputable company to maintain your fridge means that visits can be scheduled. This takes the pressure off of your shoulders and lets you focus on running your business, checks and cleaning can be organised for you, keeping your business running smoothly. Not only do maintenance visits keep your fridge working correctly, they can also prevent any potential problems arising in the future.

Maintenance checks will keep your refrigeration clean which can, in fact, increase power consumption if not tended to. For example, should you avoid maintenance, your condenser can become dirty or blocked which has been found to increase the power consumption by over 20%!

It is recommended to have regular maintenance on any product that is used daily and so a visit from a qualified engineer once or twice a year could really help you keep your equipment running efficiently. Not only will it save you money, it will save you the time of purchasing new equipment after investing already.
