Coolrooms are essential resources. There’s probably one that’s storing chilled beverages and spoilable food in your local supermarket. Elsewhere, a specialized enclosure is refrigerating a critically important batch of biological samples in a hospital while a florist shop down the street uses its powerful commercial unit to cool fresh flowers. Expert coolroom and freezer service engineers care for these essential rooms, but how do you select the right provider?
Basic Provider Tips
Make a shortlist of potential candidates. The compiled list should include coolroom and freezer service providers that offer a full concept-to-completion program. That means the likely winning provider must have the tools and wherewithal to design, build, repair, and maintain the enclosure and all of its working parts.
Every contractor with a computer has a web presence. Their website ads and newspaper promotions pop up everywhere, but the ads prove nothing except an ability to spin a yarn. Look deeper by checking for company endorsements. Has the service provider been in business for years? Or did they open their doors for business last month? Conduct a little research. Know the provider’s reputation within the local community.
The Right Tools for the Job
If your research yields positive results, then your trusted partner is on your shortlist. Next, seasoned knowledge and tools back up the design and planning stage. Choose your installation and research team based on the quality of their tools and equipment. Better yet, opt for a contractor that has construction experience, someone that’s qualified to convert a designated part of your premises into a high-end coolroom.
Comprehensive Refrigeration Partner
Refrigeration-savvy engineers are a must here, for they’re expected to install powerful refrigeration units, but there’s also energy conservation concerns to consider. Modular wall panels create this cooling envelope. They insulate by using special composite materials. Make sure your service provider knows which insulating materials work best in any particular cooling scenario. Freezers, for example, obviously require more insulation.
Use these tips to make the selection process easier. Remember, a contractor that employs fine tools and branded equipment does count for much, but add a safety net to this provision by conducting research into the company’s reputation. That one smart strategy will shave some candidates loose from the pack. Finally, opt for a service provider that fits your project, your needs. A concept-to-completion engineer works best, especially when those skills extend to a repair and preventative maintenance program.
