Whilst the summer sun may be great for business, keeping fridges in tip top condition during this busy time is essential to maximise trade.

Ultra Cooling are on hand to advise on how to keep your commercial fridges cold and prevent food waste.


Keep the door closed

The worst culprit for temperature loss of fridges is leaving the door open. Be vigilant in the kitchen and keep the fridge door shut when not in use. If your fridge has more than one door, only open the door you need to access.

Don’t turn the temperature down

Resist the temptation to turn the temperature down. Turning the temperature down could have an adverse effect on your fridge as the components have to work harder.

Clean the filters

Brushing your fridge filter and removing any dust or dirt will keep your fridge in good working order. For advice on how to do this, consult your instruction manual. Simple filter maintenance could be all that is needed for your machine to run at the correct temperature, saving call out charges and engineer time.

Location, location, location

When temperatures are very high, temporarily moving your fridge could be a sensible option. Moving your fridge away from hot ovens, fryers or direct sunlight will affect the temperature of your fridge and prevent your unit from having to work as hard.
