Checklist to Installing a Commercial Cool Room

You have better things to do than worry about how to install a commercial cool room. That’s why you pay an expert to do it, right? Of course. At the end of the day, all that matters to you is: the job is done right (with as little fuss to your business as possible), your business will be more profitable and competitive, and the cool room itself will be reliable and easy to maintain.

However, if you are in the market for a new commercial cool room, you’ll want to pay close attention. You see, while a reputable company like Frankii Commercial Refrigeration will most certainly take care of the installation process for you, there are benefits to being an informed consumer. Better still, you don’t have to spend countless hours browsing online and reading confusing technical manuals to make a wise purchase either.

Instead, all you have to do is figure out these three simple things: what your business needs, how much you can afford, and the outcomes you want to achieve. This way, when the time comes to get in touch with your local commercial cool room specialist, you’ll know exactly what to ask for and how to get it.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Define Your Business Needs

Your business is unique. Your customers are unique. For these reasons, you need a commercial cool room that blends in seamlessly with your existing layout and comfortably meets customer demand. Furthermore, you want a cool room that will preserve the quality of your frozen goods at the lowest possible cost.

These are all important factors to consider, which your installer will cover – if they are reputable and trustworthy – as they consult you and design your new commercial cool room. If your installer isn’t raising these vital issues with you, you may end up with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ product that doesn’t really fit your needs.

When defining your business needs, ask yourself these questions:

  • Can your business afford the upfront and ongoing running costs?
  • How much chilled stock must you store in order to meet customer demand?
  • Where is the safest and most convenient spot to install your new cool room?
  • Is your business exposed to extreme climates which may affect the performance of the cool room?
  • Will your cool room need to be up-scaled if the business ever expands?

Answer yourself these questions, and you’ll have a much better idea of what to ask for.

Money, Money, Money

Cost shouldn’t be the only deciding factor. However, it is an important one. Not only do you have to pay upfront for the cool room itself, but also the ongoing running costs – including yearly service, maintenance and repairs, replacement parts, and upgrades. After a few years, these costs start to add up.

How much can you expect to pay for a commercial cool room? Prices can range considerably from $3,700 up to $10,000 or more. Ultimately, the price difference comes down to the size, quality, and energy-efficiency of the units themselves. While you don’t have to pick the priciest option, if you take the cheaper route – well, let’s just say you get what you pay for!

As for running costs, you will have to account for power usage and the associated cost of maintenance and repairs. Fortunately, the potential returns for your business can far outweigh the costs if you choose a commercial cool room that is reasonably sized, reliable, and energy-efficient.

Exciting Business Opportunities

Why do you want a commercial cool room? To earn more money? Expand your product range? Replace an old, unreliable, and expensive cool room? Or keep up with customer demand? Whatever the reason, it’s a good idea to think about why you want a new coolroom, and the outcomes you want to achieve.

By doing so, you’ll be able to appreciate exactly what a new commercial cool room has to offer, and why having one is such a worthwhile investment. After all, having a cool room is more than just storing frozen stock. It can open up a wealth of new business opportunities and give your customers an experience they didn’t have before.

Best of all? By investing in a quality, reliable cool room, you can relax knowing your valuable food stock is safe – so you can rest easy at night.
