4 Buying Tips for Commercial Refrigeration Units and Free Freight

By: Eric & Vivian Smith

Commercial refrigerators are typically used in restaurants and hotels for larger storage space. You want your refrigerator to be easy to work in and energy efficient. When looking for the right units, JES Restaurant Equipment has exactly what you need. Here are four tips to buying the right unit for your kitchen.

1. The first tip you are going to want to focus on is the temperature the refrigerator ranges from. Many commercial units nowadays are designed in a way that they can be maintained between 36 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer can be maintained between -2 and 2 degrees. Just keep in mind that the size of the unit can range from a small under counter to a refrigerator that compares to a roll-through unit. This variation can alter the temperature as well.

2. As mentioned, a commercial refrigeration unit can vary in size greatly. When looking at this piece of restaurant equipment, you want to consider the type of size you are in need of. Keep in mind that maintenance can be one of the aching problems you may face depending on the size you go with. The larger the unit, the more the initial cost will be as well as the expenses you face due to energy loss.

3. The next thing to take into consideration when shopping for a unit at JES Restaurant Equipment is the cabinet check. If the cabinet appears to be good, you can move on to the whole refrigerator. Even if the entire unit looks good, you still want to look at a few other parts. Take the time to check if the lights turn off when the door is closed, see if the gaskets are splitting, pulling loose or drying out, and look for tiny details that can ruin a perfectly good unit quickly.

4. The last thing you want to look at when purchasing a commercial refrigeration unit for your kitchen is the evaporator and condenser. Check the evaporator and condenser being that a bad evaporator can lead to compressor failure. You can look to see if the condenser fins are greasy. The reason for this is because grease acts as an insulator and can cause the compressor to overheat and overwork.

There are a number of features you want to look at when purchasing a commercial refrigerator for your kitchen. This is not a cheap piece of restaurant equipment to invest in. Therefore, take the tips listed in this article into consideration as you shop for the right unit at JES Restaurant Equipment.
