Preventive Maintenance Tips  

Preventive maintenance is an important part of the life cycle of most refrigeration systems. This type of regular maintenance is performed on most tools, machines, vehicles and even computers, but is perhaps most valuable when applied refrigeration equipment.

What is Preventive Maintenance?

Preventive maintenance is routine work that is often scheduled at regular intervals to increase the performance, efficiency and life of equipment and machines. For large high gross restaurants, scheduling preventive maintenance is a mammoth undertaking. Most small businesses usually have no problems routinely maintaining refrigeration units with the help of Surety Refrigeration technicians.

A routine preventive maintenance checklist will also include checking fans, motors and electrical connections. These small, relatively inexpensive and simple tasks significantly extend the life of a system while drastically reducing the potential for future equipment breakdowns.

One of the most important aspects of maintenance for an ice maker involves checking and replacing water filters as necessary. The location, size and type of filter can vary from system to system, but clean filters allow a unit to operate more efficiently.

When is the Best Time to Perform Preventive Maintenance? At least every six months as a minimum!
