What To Know About Your Commercial Walk In Freezer

Depending on the nature of your business, you might find yourself in need of a walk in freezer or cooler. While this device can easily be an essential device for your business, a limited understanding concerning these coolers and freezers can contribute to severe problems.

Why Would Your Walk In Cooler Experience Temperature Control Problems?

Ensuring that you are able to control the temperature in your cooler and freezer is essential. Unfortunately, there can be a range of problems that can contribute to the freezer and cooler failing to keep the interior within the temperature range that you need. One of the more common problems that can lead to this problem, is the temperature gauge in the freezer becoming dirty or blocked. By cleaning the temperature gauge and removing any items that may be blocking the flow of air around this gauge, you may be able to correct this problem. If this fails to remedy the situation, it could indicate a more serious problem with the system, such as a refrigerant leak, motor failure or other potential problems. As a result, these situations may require professionals to diagnose the source of the problem.

Is It Normal For Your Walk In Freezer To Regularly Cause The Circuit Breakers To Trip?

You may find that your freezer will regularly cause the circuit breaker to flip. This can be particularly common for walk in freezers and coolers that are located in older buildings. These systems will require a very large amount of electricity to function, and the electrical systems in older buildings may not be able to handle the amount of electricity that will be required. In addition to being inconvenient, circuit breakers that regularly flip can also represent a serious fire hazard. These situations will require the wiring to be upgraded as soon as possible if you are to minimize this risk.

Why Does Your System Require A Drain Pan?

Walk in freezers and coolers will usually have drains in the floors and near the motors. These are necessary due to the large amounts of condensation that can form as the air is cooled. Cold air can hold far less moisture than warm air, and this can lead to the areas near your freezer's cooling unit to accumulate large amounts of water. By having these drains in place, you can prevent this condensation from damaging your building or flooding the cooling unit. However, these drains can become dirty and clogged if they are not regularly inspected and cleaned.
