Learn to Avoid Serious Repair Issues

A malfunctioning commercial freezer or cooler can cause serious issues for restaurants and commercial businesses that depend on their equipment to store food products.

I was debating between a 4* and 5* review. There was an initial issue with the appointment but I have to admit STAT pulled all stops when they realized their mistake and did right by the customer. I was especially impressed with the service tech (Delaine N.); the problem was intermittent and difficult to pin down. I do have a basic understanding of electrical wiring and Delaine went through his analysis with me and ensure I clearly knew what he was doing and why. He was finally able to pinpoint the problem after much back and forth analysis and testing and I now have a much better understanding of my HVAC system.5 stars - solid.

Called for an emergency furnace repair for one of my rental properties after hours and the technician was quick and honest. After reviewing my options I decided to go with a new high efficiency furnace. The installation team was friendly and did a fantastic job on the installation. The office and comfort advisor walked me through the whole process very professionally and even the owner called to follow up with me. I will definitely recommend Stat to all of my families and friends.

We were is a very tight heating on new years eve...thier number came up on my Google search and so I called them. They responded quickly and professionally. But more importantly the technician was very knowledgeable about our systems. Within minutes he identified the problem, proffered a solution to it and proceeded in fixing the problem asap. I would recommend them any day value for money in terms of the services they rendered to us.

Engaged company to install which was executed timely and they also discovered that my Furnace has been licking fluid. They also got my furnace fixed at the cheapest price I could get from many other competing companies.

Daniel was an exceptional technician. He was extremely industrious and was persistent to find a solution to the problem. I was very impressed with his workmanship. He came at a very late hour and delved into the problem and solved it. He deserves a very high accolade. Thank you Daniel for bringing warmth back to my home!

Stat is an excellent company do business with, from their free quoting, explanations on installation practices and reasonable pricing; my air-conditioning was up and running in less than 2 weeks.I also have to mention their back end support with Sean made it an easy transaction and was really impressed with the install. These guys know what they're doing and would recommend them to anyone needing heating and cooling systems.

We bought a house in Cochrane, AB and we were looking for a good company to provide us with a good air conditioner.It was very easy to book an appointment with the owner. Sean went to inspect the house and gave us a very reasonable price. They were able to install the A/C the same week and we were very satisfied with the quality of the equipment, the installation and the customer service. I recommend this company.

Very pleased with Sean and his crew. Price, promptness, and reliability of service were all fantastic. After their first visit, other issues arose, unrelated to the first problem with my furnace. Long story short, Sean came by for an additional two hours tackling a difficult problem, and when he left we were back up and running. Best part was Sean's willingness to be more than reasonable with his pricing. The customer service was fantastic in all respects, and I would definitely recommend Stat Climate Control!

Warning Signs for Equipment Malfunction

Build-up of Frost

A build-up of frost is common and is an early sign that something is not quite right with your refrigeration unit.

Frost can come from a number of factors including:

  • Humidity changes
  • Faulty pressure relief valve
  • Damaged or expired gaskets
  • Insulation issues
  • Freezer door being left open too long
  • Freezer door not sealing correctly

Frost build-up on or around the evaporator coil may be indicative of a problem with the fan or its electronic components.

In addition to frost build-up indicating a mechanical issue(s), it is also a sure sign that the refrigeration unit is increasing your energy bill as it is working inefficiently.

Noticeable Temperature Fluctuations

Food must be kept at a consistent temperature and with less cycling (on and off) your refrigeration unit uses less energy.

Temperature fluctuations can be due in part to:

  • Compressor malfunctioning
  • Faulty temperature gauge – can be verified with a thermometer
  • Dirty or defective fan
  • Refrigeration unit door being left open too long
  • Refrigeration unit door not sealing correctly
  • Damaged sensor
  • Dirty condenser coils
  • Cool air not circulating – too much food being stored
  • Failed electrical component(s)

Odour Issue

Commercial refrigeration units are not manufactured with mechanical parts that cause an unpleasant odour. Most often, an odour is the result of food that is spoiled or rotting somewhere on or around the refrigeration unit. Once you have eliminated this possibility then you can determine the smell is the result of something more serious.

Odd odours that indicate something is faulty may be caused by:

Unusual or Strange Noise

A noticeable noise coming from your refrigeration unit is most often indicative of something that needs repair. It’s important to identify and correct the problem as soon as possible to alleviate the potential of something more serious, and expensive, developing if left unattended.

  • Clogged or frozen water lines
  • Blocked defrost drain
  • Drain pan is tilted and overflowing
