Summer Reset for Refrigeration Systems

Summer AC Maintenance

Prolonged heat and humidity of North Central Florida’s summer months often force refrigeration systems to work overtime. That is why preventative maintenance to inspect and reset your system for efficiency can be key to avoiding breakdowns and extending the life of your equipment.

Your summer 2020 reset can start with a simple phone call to schedule a mid-year maintenance check. Based in Ocala, United Refrigeration, Heating and Air’s technicians are prepared to inspect any and all of your commercial refrigeration systems, including ice machines, soft serve machines, slush machines, commercial walk-ins, reach-in coolers, reach-in freezers, deli cases, exhaust fans, make-up air fans, gaskets, door hardware, and other components. United’s preventative maintenance services are designed to ensure proper functioning, identify any potential issues, and mitigate risks of costly repairs down the road.

What to Do When a Refrigeration Repair or Restart Is Needed

When a problem strikes, a reset is often the first thing we think to do. For example, if an icemaker stops making ice, your reaction may be to unplug and manually restart the machine for a quick fix.  Although oftentimes, the best protocol for avoiding further system damage is to hire a professional technician to inspect the entire system thoroughly for any possible problems before a restart.   

Why? Because many manufacturers design complex systems with control circuits and defined rules for restart procedures. United’s technicians clean, maintain, and service brands and models like True, Beverage Air, Blue Air, Master-Bilt, and Traulsen.  United is also a service and warranty contractor for commercial ice machines, such as Scotsman, Manitowoc, Hoshizaki, and more.  Each brand requires different protocols and repair methods, which is why it is important to trust the professionals to maintain and protect your equipment.

  1. Trust only the Experts: United’s professionals are trained to inspect and maintain your A/C in good times and in bad times. Considering COVID-19, United’s experts will abide by policies and procedures to keep you safe and to adhere to the latest sanitary guidelines for gloves and masks, in addition to abiding by social distancing rules.

  3. Secure and Protect Your Outdoor Unit: Central Florida’s windy and rainy summer weather can wreak havoc on your outdoor unit. Ask United’s pros to add covers to protect the unit and ensure all straps, hooks, and bolts are secure.  In certain flood-prone areas, United’s professionals may also recommend a raised platform for your unit.

  4. Professionally Inspect the HVAC System:  On a regular basis, residential and commercial HVAC systems must be cleaned and checked to make sure there are no leaking pipes, drainage issues, or corroded parts hindering proper operations.  If there has been a recent storm or major power outage, it could be wise to schedule a professional check-up to confirm there is no system damage.

  5. Make Filter Changes an Essential Activity: Safer-at-home guidelines have kept more Floridians at home, which makes a clean filter crucial for filtering particles like dust, dander, pet hair, and other allergens in the air you breath. Importantly, filter changes are also essential to keeping your system running during heavy summer usage. United’s experts suggest setting a schedule with reminders according to your system and usage.
