Determine the type of commercial freezer you need
Now that you know how much commercial space you have, it's time to choose a specific type of refrigerator. Examples of the most common freezers on the market include:
Commercial refrigerators within reach - these refrigerators have shallow shelves to allow easy access to items. They are usually upright and have one to four doors.
Countertop Commercial Refrigerator - These refrigerators have a work area at the top in addition to the cold storage. They are essential for preparing the line.
Roll-In Commercial Refrigerator - These units do not have internal shelves. They sit directly on the floor and have a minimal cabinet floor allowing racks on casters to roll directly into the cabinets.
Walk-in commercial refrigerators - they are ideal for storing large quantities of food. They allow you to move freely in the refrigerated space and have shelves for easy access.
So which of these four commercial refrigeration do you think is the most suitable for you?
Consider the door configuration
Freezer doors can be solid or glass. Both types are available in full height or half height. How do you determine the best door configuration for your refrigerator?
Look at the pros and cons. For example, solid doors have better insulation. They are easier to clean than their glass counterparts.
Glass doors allow your customers and staff to easily view the contents of your restaurant freezer without having to open and close the refrigerator unnecessarily.
Freezers with half-height doors are generally more energy efficient. Those with full-height doors tend to have more storage.
Choose an energy efficient refrigerator
How much are you currently spending on your energy bill? At a time when electricity prices are rising, any business needs an energy-efficient cooling system.
The energy consumption of different refrigerators varies widely. Of course, most energy efficient models tend to cost more than others, but the energy savings will increase over time. In addition, many energy efficient commercial refrigeration systems are eligible for tax deductions.
