Refrigeration? Yes, We Do That Too.

Most are probably familiar with the acronym HVAC: heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. However, sometimes you'll see the less common HVACR, where the 'R' stands for refrigeration. Cooper Mechanical Services is a refrigeration specialist, offering sales and service of commercial refrigeration equipment. 

Cooper's trained and professional specialists work with all brands of the following equipment:

  • Industrial Refrigerators
  • Walk-in and Reach-in Refrigeration Units
  • Coolers
  • Freezers
  • Ice Machines
  • Display Cases
  • Deli Counter Units

Cooper Mechanical Services has experience working Beverage Air, Hoshisaki, Scotsman, Manitowoc, and other brands of refrigeration equipment. 

Neglected Refrigeration Issues = Money Loss and Bad Publicity

The refrigerator is the most important piece of equipment in a commercial business for keeping food safe. Food service businesses know the importance of properly functioning refrigeration. A visit from SCDHEC inspectors can shut down a business if refrigeration temperatures are not holding at 40°F or below. Once temperatures rise above 41°F, they enter the "danger zone," the prime temperature for the growth of pathogenic bacteria. A failing inspection is not only an interruption in business and profits, it is also a public record that sends a bad message to your customers.

Keeping a log of temperatures is important because it allows you to monitor the ability of your equipment to hold a cold temperature over an extended period of time. If you notice issues with refrigeration equipment--inability to hold at 40° or below, strange sounds, smells, or improper functions--now is the time to call and have the equipment inspected by a Cooper professional.
