There are many different reasons that a business might be getting ready for a refrigeration installation. The size and scope of your refrigeration installation may vary tremendously depending on what sort of business you have. Refrigeration installation most typically occurs when a new type of business builds or buys a new space to operate in and the current facility does not meet the needs of the business. However, you may realize that your current refrigeration does not meet the needs of your business or you may decide to replace old refrigeration units that are inefficient or unreliable.
Commercial refrigeration installation is very different than getting a residential refrigerator delivered. There is usually much more wiring and building in involved. Commercial units tend to be higher tech and much larger. They are also more expensive. Many different types of businesses require refrigeration, including restaurants, stores that sell perishable items, like grocery or convenience stores, and even flower shops. Commercial refrigerators come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes because they are needed for so many different reasons.
Here are some things to consider before your refrigeration installation:
- What type of refrigeration unit best serves the needs of your business?
- How much space do you have for the refrigerator? Measure the space and compare to the external measurements of units you are considering.
- How much internal space do you need for storage? Because of the expense associated with operating a commercial refrigerator, you don’t want to get more space than you need.
- Research various brands and consider warranties and service networks to protect your investment.
