What is Commercial Refrigeration Repair?

Commercial refrigeration repair involves the diagnosis to find the root cause of the breakdown, and a solution to problems within refrigeration systems designed for commercial properties. These systems include walk-in coolers, freezers, ice machines, glycol chillers and specialized units like deli and meat cases. Commercial refrigeration units are typically larger, more complex, and endure more wear and tear than residential units, requiring expert knowledge for effective repair.

I run a restaurant, bakery and deli. We have 3 large walk in refrigerators, 2 freezers and about 10 other refrigerated units. It’s a big operation and I have used several companies over the years. I came across American Cool Heat & commercial refrigeration about 4 years ago. They are the most thorough and honest company I have worked with in 19 years of operation. I love that they warranty their work and explain everything to me. The owner, William, had me go on the roof with him to check out our refrigeration rack and explain each part, I made videos for reference. Our equipment was out dated and needed to be serviced. He showed me several areas where poor work had been done by other companies. His techs are friendly, efficient and professionally trained, I never have to guess or ask questions, they always clearly explain everything to me and give me some options depending on the job. They are replacing a defrost timer and condensing fan in my walk in freezer today. Whenever I call for service, they come the same day- even emergencies on weekends. Can’t say enough good things about this company. Ask for William!

We have a large business in Palm Springs. William and his team came highly recommended. From day one, they did the impossible. This includes rebuilding a 20-ton HVAC unit on our roof that was written off by other companies. Competitors wanted to remove it which included a crane, insurances, and of course the replacement cost. William, Frank, and the team assessed the unit, and gave us a 90% success rate on a repair vs. a replacement. They succeeded. From then on, they’ve handled all or our equipment… on time, up front, and always professional.

American CoolHeat Air & Commercial Refrigeration is a service we’ve used twice now. Their technicians were very courteous, respectful and were sensitive to the needs of my 91-year old mother, who is on a fixed income.They arrived promptly, worked for hours and hours on our AC in the heat. I appreciate their honesty and willingness to go the extra mile. What’s even nicer is they always say, “God bless you.” before they hang up the phone. That alone will assure that they will continue to get our business!
