Top 4 Refrigeration Malfunctions to Prevent

By:

Refrigeration malfunctions are the last thing you want in the New Year, especially if you are a businessowner or manager relying on systems for your daily operations. To save the day, United Refrigeration, Heating and Air stays ready to promptly provide emergency repair services to keep your businesses up and running today and throughout 2022.

In addition to speedy service, United’s team strives to prevent trouble before it strikes businesses around Ocala, the Villages, and across North Central Florida. To help restaurants, kitchen facilities, stores, and other businesses limit downtime, United’s experts are offering preventative maintenance tips to mitigate risks and save money. 

Protect your refrigeration systems against these five malfunctions:

  1. Wrong Temperatures or Settings:  Always ensure you have the temperatures set correctly for optimum performance.  Refrigerators, coolers, freezers, ice machines, soft serve machines, slush machines, and other refrigeration systems require very specific settings according to manufacturer guidelines. Contact United Refrigeration’s experts for assistance with proper settings for an array of makes and models of refrigeration systems.
  2. Dirty Condensers, Coils, or Fans:  System cleaning and maintenance is the key to keeping your system running at peak performance.  If you want to keep things cool, it is important to regularly inspect and professionally clean evaporator coils, condensers, and fans. Removing dust can improve heat transfer and boost functionality.
  3. Inadequate Sealing or Poor Airflow: Many people underestimate the importance of proper sealing.  Regularly inspect auto-closers, doors, and gaskets for air leaks. You could avoid many problems before they start by performing general maintenance and making inexpensive repairs for door hardware and door gaskets. This will help prevent warm air from destroying your perishables.  In addition, allow for adequate space around the exterior of your system to assist the airflow around the heat exchange coils. 
  4. Compressor or Thermostat Failures: Functioning thermostats and compressors are essential for proper operations. These parts are at the heart of your system, and they must always be functioning. In addition to checking refrigerant levels and inspecting temperature control, United’s on-call technicians are prepared to help you make the most cost-effective decisions in repairing or replacing these vital parts.

If you hear noisy sounds, smell odors, or notice fluctuating temperatures, now is the time to schedule a maintenance service, cleaning, repair, or new installation with United Refrigeration, Heating and Air.
