What to consider before buying commercial or medical refrigeration

Whether you are looking for commercial refrigeration or medical refrigeration, here are a few important things to consider before you buy.

When it comes to commercial or medical refrigeration, size matters

The larger the commercial or medical fridge you buy, the more energy it will consume to keep cool. Before purchasing a fridge, assess how much inventory you will need to keep refrigerated, taking into account any extra storage space that’s required over peak periods. Buy a fridge that will comfortably hold this inventory, with a little extra storage space to accommodate business growth, but no more as it will incur unnecessary costs in energy bills.

Commercial and medical refrigeration is an investment, so buy quality equipment

While it’s tempting to try and save money on your commercial or medical refrigeration when setting up a business, as it’s an expensive outlay, it’s important to buy quality equipment. By investing in quality equipment from Euro Chill, when it comes to your refrigeration you will find you reap the benefits in cost, energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs. It’s better to have a slightly higher upfront cost on your refrigeration and save hundreds in energy bills and maintenance over the long-term. The first step of the race is always an important one.

Maintenance is integral

Even if you purchase a high-quality commercial or medical refrigeration system, arranging for regular maintenance is important to ensure optimal performance over its life cycle. It’s also far cheaper to have regular servicing and routine checks done than to have to pay for an expensive system failure and the loss of inventory which also results. Also, before a system breakdown occurs, you’ll generally experience your system having a higher level of energy consumption, so this is another cost to pay if you choose to avoid maintenance.

Select a commercial or medical refrigeration system with the right features for your inventory

While it’s always nice to have the latest state-of-the-art refrigeration unit with all the bells and whistles, you may be paying for some features you’ll never use. So before you select your refrigeration requirements, determine which features are relevant to the inventory you will be storing. A logging device is a great place to start, as this will monitor and record your temperatures.
