Commercial Refrigeration Service & Maintenance
Refrigeration System Repairs
Tri-Point Refrigeration is capable of providing repairs on all types of commercial refrigeration equipment. This includes everything from walk-in coolers and freezers to ice machines and refrigerated display cases.
Getting repairs done right the first time is essential and that’s why Tri-Point is committed to making sure problems are fixed and not just temporarily patched up. You can count on your technician to provide the right course of action for long-term solutions to keep your equipment running smoothly.
By making sure that all repairs actually solve the problem, and not just temporarily patch things up, you can be assured that you’re getting the full lifespan out of your equipment and reducing the chance for future problems.
Routine Commercial Refrigeration Maintenance
It’s always best to avoid expensive repairs as much as possible and that comes down to having a solid maintenance plan in place. Preventative maintenance is the number one way that commercial refrigeration equipment owners can minimize the risk of malfunctioning equipment, system shutdowns, and eventually product loss.
Tri-Point technicians can work with you to create a maintenance plan that matches the level of use your equipment gets. With a proper plan in place and the routine following of your maintenance plan, you will be able to minimize the risk of catastrophic breakdowns that lead to expensive repairs.
Benefits Of Routine Commercial Refrigeration Maintenance
There is a wide range of benefits that you can count on as a result of properly serviced refrigeration equipment. Aside from guaranteeing that you get the full life from your equipment, some of the other benefits include:
Prevention Of Costly Repairs Due to Neglect
One of the primary issues that can arise from neglecting routine maintenance is the breakdown of moving parts and the subsequent costly repairs needed to get things back up and running. Even worse, you likely won’t know exactly when your equipment will break down meaning it could be at an inconvenient time.
As much as possible, you want to avoid having your refrigeration unit break down before rush hour at your business. While there are never guarantees that everything will work properly all the time, regular maintenance can significantly decrease the likelihood of a breakdown.
Reducing Power Consumption
One of the primary culprits of a high energy bill is a walk-in freezer and cooler unit that has broken seals and gaskets. When your walk-in has to operate harder than normal to keep the same temperatures you can expect that to reflect in your monthly energy costs.
One other important thing to remember is that if your equipment is having to operate more than usual this increases the likelihood of failure. Routine maintenance can help not only to keep your energy bills low but also to extend the life of your equipment over the long term.
Ensuring Proper Food Safety
For supermarkets, convenience stores, and restaurants, food safety and keeping food at the correct temperature is vital. Improperly maintained refrigeration equipment can lead to unstable temperatures that can bring some food types outside of their safe temperature range.
In many cases, food that has risen past safe temperatures will need to be thrown away. So, by neglecting proper maintenance, you run the risk of not only having to shell out extra for repairs but also lost profits from thrown-out food and the extra expenses to replace the inventory.
Extending The Life Of Your Equipment
It’s a given that the longer your equipment works the longer you can put off needing a new system. Walk-In refrigerators and freezers, and the refrigeration units for ice machines, are not cheap to replace. Therefore, doing everything you can to extend the life of this equipment is in your best interest.
Preventative maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure you are getting the full life from your equipment. This includes doing maintenance that you can perform without professional help as well as having a Tri-Point technician conduct inspections, service, and maintain heavy use equipment.
Service For All Types Of Refrigeration Equipment
Walk-In Cooler and Freezer Repair
Commercial walk-in refrigerator repair is essential for keeping your products from ruining and increasing your overhead. Most of the issues with walk-ins stem from the refrigeration equipment, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that can cause problems.
Areas such as the doors and door hardware can also be a significant source of trouble as these often receive quite a bit of use and abuse. Repairs to your walk-in cooler door can lead to overall decreases in energy use and reduce how hard your compressor needs to run.
Commercial Refrigerated Prep Table Repair
Because cold prep tables store food and are used for food preparation, it’s essential to service them regularly and immediately conduct repairs to keep them running properly. Tri-Point has worked with a variety of restaurants and cafeterias to repair broken cold prep tables and get their business back up and running.
The last thing you want is to have a prep table break down before your rush hour or during normal business hours. Tri-Point offers emergency refrigeration repairs and stocks the most common parts in technician’s trucks to get your equipment repaired as quickly as possible.
Commercial Ice Machine Repair
As with any other piece of equipment that hundreds of people use each day, ice machines can take a lot of abuse. Problems will inevitably arise and the most important thing is to get your ice machine repaired and back up and running quickly so it doesn’t impact your business.
Tri-Point stocks common ice machine parts in trucks so that many problems can be repaired the same day. For items that need to be ordered, you can expect expediency to get your part installed and get your ice machine up and running again for customer or employee use.
Refrigerated Display Case and Reach-In Cooler Repair
For grocery stores and convenience stores, reach-in and display cases can quite often take a beating from customers and employees regularly opening them up to get products and restock merchandise. This can create a lot of stress on the compressor leading them to break down more easily.
When your display and reach-in cases break down, it’s essential to get them back up and running quickly to avoid potential product loss. Tri-Point has worked with both large grocery chains down to smaller convenience stores to get their reach-in and display cases repaired and back up and running.
