3 Common Problems with Commercial Refrigeration Systems

Whatever type of business you may be in, you need to know that any necessary commercial refrigeration equipment is in fine working condition at all times. This can be trickier than you may realize, though, as commercial refrigeration equipment is put to extremely heavy use, at all times of the day and night. All of this use will, naturally, result in some general wear and tear.

To ensure that serious problems do not develop with your system, routine maintenance is an absolute necessity. Of course, even well-maintained systems will run into operational problems from time to time. When you notice problems develop with your system, contact the Fort Collins, CO commercial refrigeration experts on our staff immediately. LetĀ Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning know if you discover any of these common problems with your commercial refrigeration equipment.

  1. Frost or Ice Develops: If you notice frost and/or ice in your commercial refrigeration equipment, or on its various components, then you may wonder precisely what the problem is. After all, this equipment is designed to keep things cool. Doesn’t this mean, then, that frost and ice are good things? The answer, in fact, is no; you should not see frost or ice developing in your system. It may be the result of poor airflow, or you may have a refrigerant leak. Whatever the precise nature of the problem may be, though, you can count on our staff to resolve it entirely.
  2. Trouble Maintaining Temperatures: On the opposite end of the spectrum, you may find that the refrigerated space within your commercial refrigeration equipment is acually not cold enough. You may have bad seals on doors, a problem with your compressor, or, again, refrigerant leaks. It could also be a case of simple user error, or a malfunctioning thermostat. Again, it is always best to have a trained professional evaluate the system when problems develop.
  3. Loud Operational Levels: You can expect to hear some noise coming from your commercial refrigeration equipment. After all, it has fans, motors, a compressor, and other mechanical components. You should not hear excessive noise when it is running, though, nor should new, unfamiliar sounds develop. If you notice anything at all out of the ordinary with your system, schedule service with the pros on our staff immediately.
