Commercial Refrigeration Melbourne

As a retailer, whether you are a supermarket, a pub, restaurant or butcher, when you call a refrigeration technician to come out and repair a failed system, the main job of the technician is to get your system up and running again and to keep you trading. However, a good commercial refrigeration technician will also make sure your equipment is not wasting energy and adding unnecessary costs to your business.

A refrigeration system can be a major draw on electrical energy, so it can be a real benefit when a technician can make sure the system is operating efficiently. Some of this goes hand-in-hand with repair, as many system issues will cause the equipment to consume excessive energy.

You can help in preventing excessive run time by making sure your refrigeration plant is in good shape, and simple housekeeping tips like not opening fridge or cool-room doors unnecessarily,check the door gaskets and hinges to ensure the door closes properly and creates a sufficient seal with the cabinet. Torn or worn door gaskets need to be replaced and broken or loose door hinges need to be repaired.

Another area to examine on refrigeration systems is the temperature control, an incorrectly adjusted temperature control can cause a system to operate at a lower set temperature, which can lead to excessive run times. Operating a freezer at a lower temperature than required may not be perceived as a problem, but is a waste of energy, also ensuring the condenser coil is clean and free of dust and working efficiently is extremely important in ensuring minimum possible run-time, as is ensuring that the refrigerant charge is at the correct level.
