Consider scheduling periodic maintenance from a hvac specialist to extend the life and efficiency of your walk-in fridge. Walk-in coolers and freezers may store a significant amount of merchandise, which can be lost if the cooler breaks down. Follow these DIY maintenance measures at the very least to avoid an unexpected walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer repair:
- Keep dirt out of door seals and repair them as they get worn.
- Clean and sanitize interior surfaces on a regular basis to minimize corrosion.
- Use coil cleaning at least once a year to maintain condenser coils clean and unclogged.
With proper care, your walk-in cooler should last for at least 15 years. As previously stated, insulation degrades and loses its efficacy over time. Older walk-in refrigeration systems lose efficiency with time, and it is typically suggested that a unit be replaced every 15 years. Newer systems (about 2020 and after) are getting more efficient and constructed to endure longer, so they may survive longer than 15 years.
