What To Know About Commercial Freezers

The cooling systems that you have in your restaurant or convenience store will make all of the difference in the world for you. Installing a quality steel three-door commercial freezer will keep all of your goods fresh and will help you get more use from your perishable items. You have to learn how to find the right freezer for your business so that you can take care of it and get plenty of good years from this equipment. Let the tips below get you started in the right direction.

#1: Start understanding the perks of having a three-door commercial freezer

Having a quality three-door commercial freezer buys you lots of space and storage capacity. Since these freezers are crafted with steel, you can expect them to be tough, durable, and air-tight, to keep your beverages, foods, or other perishables as fresh as possible.

#2: Check out some new and used models on the market

These freezers come in a variety of sizes and can be installed according to your company's needs. For instance, a restaurant that seats several customers per day may want a large walk-in freezer, while a convenience store might need a more simple model. Start scoping out what the market has to offer and compare it to what your business needs.

A walk-in cooler installation can cost you roughly $6,000, so make sure you have some money set aside in your budget. You may be able to find a substantial deal on a used model that still has plenty of good years of use left in it. Check the British Thermal Units (BTUs) and go with a freezer model that has energy-saving features so that you can stretch out your operating budget by not using as much energy each month.

#3: Find the best ways to manage and care for your freezer

After you purchase your freezer, start to hone in on the repairs and maintenance that you will need. You can expect to pay about $100 to $300 on commercial freezer repairs. Get to know the different parts of your commercial freezers, such as the condenser coils, blast chiller, compressors, and other parts. Pay careful attention to the insulation so that you're not dealing with air loss or leaks. Get your freezer checked out at least once per year to make sure it's staying in great condition.
