Are you struggling to efficiently run your cold room? At MTCSS we understand how costly this can be to your business. Formed in 2007, our staff have a combination of more than 50 years of industry related experience. This allows us to provide cold storage installations across numerous sectors. We know exactly what it takes to improve the efficiency of your cold room.
Regularly Clean Your Equipment
To work efficiently your cold room must be kept clean. The evaporator cells and condenser should be free of dust and other blockages which can restrict air output. These parts remove warm air from the room which helps to maintain its optimal temperature. If that is not possible the unit will have to work harder to compensate for a lack of air flow. This will lead to pricier bills and in the long run could cause breakdowns or damage to your room.
Repair Damage Immediately
Contact us immediately if you notice any cracks in your cold room or if you have any faulty parts. Structural damage can stop the room working efficiently. We have an after-sales maintenance service that is carried out by our fully-trained engineers. We can help if you come across any problems and are well placed to serve businesses all over the country.
Choose a Specialist Door
There are several types of cold room doors we offer. Each have a range of benefits such as being able to operate on rooms of varying temperatures.
- Sliding – available in horizontal, vertical or automatic sliding designs they are perfect for when you are working in very little space
- Hinged – ideal for walk-in freezers and rooms where forklift access is not required
- Semi-Insulated Hinged Doors – perfect if you have rooms of a positive temperature or for use dividing areas of different purposes like between a processing area and your office
Choosing the correct door ensures your cold rooms are kept at their optimal temperature for the greatest amount of time possible.
Keep the Doors Closed
Anything that can negatively impact the temperature of your cold storage room must be avoided if possible. An open door will cause cold air to escape and warm air from the outside to replace it. From time to time the doors will need to be used but make sure you close it behind you. This means the unit will not have to work as hard to stabilise the temperature inside. Increased energy bills come as a result of an overworked cold room while its lifespan will be dramatically shortened too. Door alarms can help you to monitor if your doors are closed. They indicate if the doors are open for extended periods of time.
To further prevent the loss of cold air you can use insulated curtains. Designed to fit snuggly between your walls, floor and ceiling they stop air flow from one section of the room to the other. This is ideal if you require your door to be open for a small amount of time if you have a goods delivery or if you are manoeuvring products from one room to another.
