If you’re a business owner, you have plenty on your plate—and we know how important it is for your appliances to operate smoothly. If you run any type of business in the food industry, commercial refrigeration is critical to the success of your enterprise.
It might surprise you that our team at Synergy is experienced in commercial refrigeration—and we can help you get the most out of your appliances. Want to learn a little more about commercial refrigeration? Check out these frequently asked questions answered by our experts:
What is the life expectancy of a commercial refrigerator?
This depends on which box you buy. However, while most consumer refrigerators only last around three years, commercial refrigerators are expected to last around 15-20 years. This is because of the extremely large fan blades that can blow high volumes of air slowly across the evaporator. This results in a quicker temperature pull-down time, which means shorter run times and a longer life span.
What is the cost of installation and how is it done?
Once again, this will depend on which box or refrigerator you choose and the space you have. We like to send an experienced technician out to your location to make sure you get the best fit for your space and budget.
Why would I prefer one of these refrigerators over a standard, residential refrigerator?
There are many reasons to choose commercial refrigeration over residential. First, commercial refrigerators are significantly more powerful than standard refrigerators—and, like we mentioned above, they also last longer. Residential refrigerators are not meant for constant, in-and-out operation, but commercial refrigerators are built for just that. Obviously, a commercial refrigerator is going to be much larger as well, which means you’ll have more capacity for storing food. In addition to its size, a commercial refrigerator can cool larger quantities of food at once.
Is commercial refrigerating only for businesses?
Absolutely not. Many homeowners actually prefer to use commercial refrigeration because of the sleek design and significantly larger storage capacity.
How do I know which type of commercial fridge is right for me?
This depends on what you plan on doing with it. If you have very specific needs and would like guidance, we can help. Simply give us a call or send us an email.
What type of warranties come with these refrigerators? Are there any other guarantees?
Most of our refrigerators come with a one-year warranty. These refrigerators are also guaranteed to be free from defects when purchased.
