Proper maintenance is essential to the operation of any commercial refrigeration unit. While they’re designed to withstand the ongoing demands of places such as restaurants, convenience stores and supermarkets, business owners need to do all they can to ensure their continuous function.
In today’s blog post, local HVAC company AAA Air Conditioning, Inc. discusses what you can do to help your commercial refrigeration units last longer.
From Purchase to Installation
Ensuring that commercial refrigeration units last longer starts from the time business owners make their initial purchase. Before having them installed inside the facility or commercial property, they first need to double-check that the products can be accommodated during delivery. In this regard, certain considerations must be taken into account, such as making sure that the doorways are wide enough for the units to fit through as they’re being delivered. and that the outlet will provide enough power to keep the units running.
As the units are moved into the facility, the refrigerant and motor oil inside the system’s components sloshes around. That being said, it’s important to hold off on operating the units for at least 24 hours to allow these liquids time to settle, which will help prevent any issues. Before leaving them to rest, make certain that the surface on which they’re placed is completely flat.
The Units’ Lifecycle Performance
Owners and managers can implement simple practices to ensure the long-term performance and efficiency of commercial refrigeration units. Turning to an HVAC contractor that specializes in refrigeration maintenance is always a good move. Then again, there are certain maintenance tasks that you can do on your own to help your units perform better, such as cleaning the condenser coils.
