How Do You Know When It’s Time to Service Your Refrigerator?

Commercial refrigerators have come a long way since they were first invented, with the latest solutions able to last for years with minimal required maintenance. However, nothing in this world is impervious to degradation, and sooner or later, you will have to either repair or replace your refrigeration solution.

If you need to keep medication or consumables refrigerated both for the sake of your customers and to comply with the law, then keeping your system in full working order is of the utmost importance. Therefore, it’s crucial to know when it’s time to have your refrigerators serviced, but it’s also vital to purchase a solution from a trusted provider and installer from the offset.

At Mitchell’s, our roots date back to 1905, which is why we’ve remained at the forefront of refrigeration developments since the industry began. We utilise advanced software and employ a team of highly trained professionals to design and install a solution that’s built to last. Plus, even though we’re based in Gloucester, we’re trusted by a nationwide network of clients. Keep reading to learn about the tell-tale signs that suggest your refrigerators need servicing.

  • Your Products Are Spoiling Too Quickly

If your refrigerated food is expiring well before its sell-by date, it’s highly likely that there’s a problem that needs fixing right away. You can’t afford to risk selling food that could cause your customers to become sick. Plus, if your refrigerator isn’t working as it should, you’re undoubtedly paying much more for electricity than necessary.

  • Leaks and Condensation

If your refrigerator’s seals have deteriorated, puddles and leaks will soon become apparent. As a consequence, you might start noticing a build-up if ice inside your unit, which in addition to being problematic can also spur the growth of mould and mildew, both of which are hazardous to human health.

  • Your Refrigeration Solution is Hot

Even though it sounds counterintuitive, refrigerators produce a small amount of heat. However, the back of your unit should feel warm at the most, so if it feels hot to the touch, it’s time to call the professionals for a service. Such a problem can occur for a variety of reasons, but it’s likely concerned with the condenser coils.

  • Your Utility Bills Have Skyrocketed

Provided you purchase commercial refrigerators from a company such as Mitchell’s, you should expect them to last for at least ten years. If you notice that you’re spending much more on energy than usual, whether it’s before or after you’ve had your refrigerators for ten years, you should call our experts to give your cold storage units a service.
