Merry Christmas to all our customers and thank you all for your support this year. Enjoy this time with your family and friends and we wish you a happy and healthy New Year. Upright Refrigeration is here to help you all through the busy Christmas New Year season! We are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week every day of the year!
Just a couple of things to remember:
There may be an after-hours call out fee and overtime rates applicable so give us a call and we can talk through all the options and let you know what the costs will be. Remember if the equipment is maintained under one of our regular maintenance plans then there is no call out fee.
We do not come out after hours to fix non-essential equipment like ice machines but we will give them priority for the next working day.
Get your maintenance up to date in the spring
A small investment in maintenance early is better than the inconvenience and cost of a breakdown during the busy season. Discuss any excess noise or vibration with your Refrigeration Mechanic.
Ensure that your equipment has plenty of air flow around the condenser coil. It is important to keep minimum clearances around units as prescribed by the manufacturer. 15 to 20cm is a good guideline, but the more clearance the better.
Keep your condensor coils clean
The coil is usually located on the outside of the unit. It expels the heat from the condensing unit. Your equipment will not function properly if the coil is dirty. Using a stiff brush, brush gently in the direction of the fins, not across, so as not to flatten or damage them. Have your refrigeration mechanic pressure clean it a couple of times a year.
Regularly check the door gaskets on your Fridges and Freezers, if they are torn, broken or missing then your equipment is working harder and running longer to try and keep the temperature down.
A fridge or freezer door left open will also cause the equipment to work harder and run longer and may lead to the evaporator coils icing up. Check the operation of the door hinges and closers and ensure the doors are closing firmly.
