Whether you are starting a new business or need to replace outdated equipment, it is important to choose the right refrigerator. At All Temp, we are here to help every step of the way with Orlando area refrigeration, from installation to maintenance and repair. Here is our advice for finding the perfect refrigerator for your business:

Consider Your Refrigeration Needs

To determine what type of refrigerator you will need, figure out what is going inside. Certain types of refrigerators are required for different types of businesses. Make sure to read up on this before purchasing one that isn’t up to code. If customers will be seeing the refrigerator, consider its appearance. If not, make functionality your main priority. A blemished floor model or even a used appliance can be just as good as a shiny new one with less upfront cost.

Consider the Size

The next step to finding a refrigerator is deciding on a size. Figure out how much food you will need to store. Make a detailed list of items you will use on a daily basis. If you are just starting out, find something that will be a little too big for you now to account for growth in the future. Consider shelving and drawer options to see what will make the most sense for your day-to-day operations.

Consider the Placement

Before bringing a refrigerator into your industrial kitchen, figure out where it’s going. Measure the space, and put it in the place that makes the most sense. Think about who will need to access it the most. It might be worth changing the layout of the kitchen to make the refrigerator fit into your flow. Take a look at the condenser, as well. Bottom-mounted units are better for frequent maintenance and cleaning in bakeries or kitchens with minimal cooking. Top-mounted units avoid clogging better and offer easier access to food. When it comes time for installation, our team is here to help.
