However, regular maintenance is not enough to keep your glass door fridges running smoothly on a long-term basis. Just like any technical strategies, there should be a maintenance plan formulated to estimate the desired lifespan of the commercial fridges, to which the specific maintenance tips are based to help the food and beverage business owners achieve and keep track of these goals.

Commercial Fridge Maintenance Tip 1:

Invest in a high-quality, new generation commercial fridge.

Newer, more efficient fridges already have the capacity for lower energy consumption, therefore fewer amounts of electric bills. Depending on your needs, a non-defrosting commercial fridge consumes less energy than a self-defrosting one. 

Commercial Fridge Maintenance Tip 2:

Save energy by choosing models with Star Ratings.

Star Ratings determine the energy efficiency of a particular commercial refrigeration unit. The more stars there are, the less electric consumption a commercial fridge does to achieve the same performance as that of ordinary models. Again, this depends on your food and beverage business needs. 

Commercial Fridge Maintenance Tip 3:

Analyze the commercial refrigeration features that you need.

Make sure that the features you are looking at are needed and shall be used on your business, not just some fancy features you will not actually use. Additional features which add to the energy consumption and price of a commercial chiller are through-the-door dispensers and ice-makers. Think carefully if your business really needs these features.

Commercial Fridge Maintenance Tip 4:

Analyze commercial refrigeration capacities.

Capacities and features to be measured and matched to your business needs include storage temperatures, quantities and types of product, and speed at which products need to be cooled. 

Commercial Fridge Maintenance Tip 5:

Consider appliance-related advocacies on renewable energy.

Most of these advocacies include environment-friendly energy sources such as solar and wind energy. These are usually accredited by the Government. Choosing to support these advocacies may not have direct benefit for your business now, but it will in the future, so might as well invest on green energy too, in maintaining energy consumption of your glass door chillers.
