Who doesn’t want to save precious dollars on their electric bill, right? If you are one of the millions who think along these lines, then take heart because help is on the way!
Let’s focus on your refrigeration equipment. This is the equipment that works the hardest for everybody. One of the most useful as it helps us keep our food fresher longer and gives us relief after a hard day’s work under the scorching sun by giving us cold water to drink among a host of other things it can do.
Unfortunately, we tend to take our refrigeration for granted maintenance wise. So what should we do to make this equipment work for us in the longest most efficient way? Try not over stock your cooler or freezer. The tendency is to put everything inside until you will have a hard time closing it. Air must be allowed to circulate inside so that it can freeze and or cool the items inside. Overstocking it will just make the compressor work harder, thus shortening its life span.
If you want to get the most out of your refrigeration equipment, you must take good care of it even before it shows any wear and tear. One of the primary mistakes is that we wait for our refrigeration to show warning signs that something is wrong before we do something to remedy it. The best thing to do is to have a preventive maintenance plan to keep it working longer at a very efficient rate. This will prolong the life of the equipment, minimize repair expenses, and reduce electrical consumption.
Have a professional check your refrigeration equipment on a regular basis. All condenser and evaporator coils should be cleaned and degreased if necessary. Drainage should be blown out and condensate pans cleaned. All contacts, controls, and wiring should be inspected for wear or pitting. This will prevent equipment failure and reduce amperage draw. Refrigerant level and compressor operation should be monitored. Door seals, hinges, and closers should be inspected. Temperature and cycling should be checked. Stationary thermometers in equipment should be calibrated. Motors with oil ports should be lubricated. Only a certified professional should do this preventive maintenance for you because if you don’t know what you are doing, then instead of saving a few bucks you’d be spending much more for repairs.
