Commerical HVAC Gide: What You Should Know About Commercial Refrigerator Installation

If you’ve just opened a business in Wellington, FL and need some new refrigeration equipment or if you need to replace your current system, there are some considerations to think about to figure out which unit is right for you. We’ve put together a short list of some of the initial things you’ll have to consider when you get your new commercial refrigeration system.

Available Space

Obviously, one of the major factors that will determine which commercial refrigeration unit you can buy is the amount of available space that you have. Your contractor will measure how much room you have and figure out which unit will best fit the space available.

Available Storage

Another thing to think about is how much storage space you will need. The size of your business and the amount of food you’ll be preparing will help determine the size of refrigerator that you will need. You don’t want to get a commercial refrigerator that is too small for your needs, but you also do not want to waste energy with an unnecessarily large refrigerator.

Kitchen Layout

You and your kitchen staff are going to be using the refrigerator a lot. People will be rushing around, putting items inside the fridge and taking them out. You want to make sure that they have easy access to the fridge and that opening the doors don’t interfere with your kitchen’s operation. In some cases, a refrigerator with sliding doors might be a good option.

Drains and Electricity Source

Finally, you’ll want to discuss with your contractor where the refrigerator is going to be so that it can be connected to your electrical system. You typically want one outlet dedicated to your refrigerator so that you don’t overload it. Also, your refrigerator will need to drain condensation which will require a hose to go out the back of your appliance.
