If you have a business in Jackson, Kentucky, that relies on commercial refrigeration, it’s important to know when it’s time to finally replace your refrigerator. If food in your commercial refrigerator is starting to spoil, you’ll lose valuable revenue as well as customer confidence. Here are a few signs that it’s time to replace your commercial refrigerator soon.

Food Spoiling Before Expiration Date

When a customer walks into your business to buy a product from your refrigerator, he or she expects to find fresh food, especially when the expiration date is current. If you find that food is spoiling and you are having to throw inventory away prematurely, your refrigerator probably has an operating problem. If you are continuing to have this problem, call us as soon as possible so we can replace your refrigerator before you lose any more revenue.

Leaks, Condensation, and Ice Buildup

Frequent puddling of water around your refrigerator is an indication that something is wrong. When the seals become old and worn out, they allow water leaks; air leaks can also occur between doors and compartments. Leaking water can cause condensation, which can lead to bacterial growth. Excess water can also result in ice buildup, which may cause frostbite on foods. These are serious problems that indicate it’s time to replace your commercial refrigerator.

Increased Repair Costs

If you have had increasingly frequent repairs done to your commercial refrigerator, you’ll want to look at the cost of these increasing repair bills and weigh them against the cost of a new refrigerator. With proper maintenance, a new unit will give you years of peak performance. Your food will stay fresh until the expiration date, and your repair bills will decrease. It’s far better to invest your money in a new energy-efficient refrigerator and regular maintenance than it is to throw money away on repair costs.
