General Maintenance of your Walk-in Cooler and Freezer

General Maintenance of your Walk-in Cooler and Freezer components can go a long way in keeping the System running efficiently, as well as, helping to reduce the overall cost.

A Maintenance item that is sometimes overlooked is the cleaning of the Condenser Coils. The Condenser units for the Walk-in Cooler and Freezer are typically located outside. With the Units being located outside debris and dirt can be drawn into the fins causing the coil to lose its efficiency in removing heat from the refrigerant. This will cause the compressor to work harder. In extreme situations this increased usage can cause the compressor to fail.

Below is an example of a Before and After graph showing compressor cycles. You will notice that in the before graph the compressor is running about 7 times an hour to maintain the Walk-in Freezer box temperature. After the Coil was cleaned the compressor is running about 4 times an hour. That would roughly equate to a reduction in compressor cycles of over 60 less compressor cycles per day for this Walk-in Freezer.
