Treating, Repairing and Designing Timber Fences and Decks

Welcome to my blog! My name is Brenda, and I love designing homes and landscaping yards. In particular, I love implementing natural wood and timber into my designs. Last year, I put on new timber decking and added a fence. to our garden Through the process of working with a contractor and doing a lot of independent research, I was able to get just the type of decking and fencing I wanted, and now, I am adamant about taking great care of it. In this blog, I am going to cover a gamut of concepts related to timber decking, and I might into delve into some other posts about construction or DIY. I hope that you like my ideas!

4 Reasons Your Commercial Refrigerator Is Running Too Cold

Your commercial refrigerator is used to keep things cool, but you may sometimes find it running colder than it should. That might not sound like such a problem at first, but a refrigerator that runs too cold is going to consume more energy and often create ice. Additionally, such an issue usually indicates an underlying problem that should be fixed now before repairs or replacements become more expensive and time-consuming.

With that in mind, here are just four common reasons why commercial refrigerators run too cold.

1. Faulty Thermostat

If your refrigerator is going to run at the right temperature, it needs to be given the correct input. That's where the thermostat comes in. It is what tells your refrigerator what temperature to reach. It also maintains that temperature once it is reached. As such, a faulty thermostat can easily cause a commercial refrigerator to become too cold. Essentially, it will be telling your refrigerator to get colder than it needs to. In some cases, the thermostat will simply have been set incorrectly, but you may sometimes find that it needs to be replaced.

2. Faulty Temperature-Sensing Bulb

Sometimes you'll find the thermostat seems to work properly but the refrigerator runs continuously, regardless of how cold it gets inside. When this happens, you're likely to notice a lot of ice building up inside, and this usually happens when the temperature-sensing bulb has been damaged. This is the part of your refrigerator that lets the rest of the system know how cold things are. If it becomes faulty, it will never report the correct temperature, so your refrigerator will just keep running.

3. Unclean Coils

As time passes, dirt and dust can build up across a refrigerator's condenser coils. This can cause several problems, decrease energy efficiency and lead to mechanical failure since it means the compressor needs to work harder to keep your refrigerator at the correct temperature. In some cases, this will mean the refrigerator is overcooled and starts to freeze the food and drink inside, so make sure to regularly clean any dust and dirt from the coils at the back of your refrigerator.

4. Leaking Seals

If your refrigerator isn't properly sealed against the environment outside, it may need to run continuously. This can lead to icing since the refrigerator will essentially be trying to cool down the area outside itself as well as the actual fridge compartment. It usually happens when the gasket-type seal used on a refrigerator's door becomes worn or damaged. Luckily enough, this is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix.
