How long do commercial refrigerators last?

We understand that a commercial refrigerator can be a sizeable investment at first. And, like anything, you’re going to want to make sure you receive the best value for money option with a long lasting product that will serve you for many years. At Bluebird Refrigeration, the commercial fridge repair experts, we have a clearer idea than most as to how long your standard commercial refrigerator should last.

It’s one of the most popular questions we are asked, and rightly so! After all, if you’re making a purchase as important as a commercial refrigerator, you’re going to want to know roughly when it will need replacing.

So, let’s find out how much service you should expect to receive from your refrigeration system, shall we?

The standard lifespan

With a machine as powerful as a commercial refrigerator, you’d expect considerable strain to be placed on their flawless condition, right? Although they have to work particularly hard to keep your produce at a specified, cool temperature, they are made to last.

Of course, there are various factors that can attribute a refrigerator’s lifespan, which we will get into later. With this in mind, you shouldn’t take this number as gospel, as your refrigerator may fall short of the 8 year lifespan we expect for standard systems or live past it.

Which model will you choose?

You’ll soon realise as you conduct research on the best commercial fridge for you that they will not all be built to last the same amount of time. Depending on the intended location and use of your fridge (in the kitchen, front of house etc), it’s likely that the doors will be opened regularly and as such, the system will have to work incredibly hard to maintain your required temperature.

You should place great emphasis on the advertised lifespan of your refrigerator, and, if not mentioned initially, you should ask the company that supplies the product directly. By receiving a roundabout figure from each, you can compare and decide which is the most durable.

Can depend on level of care

In an ideal scenario, you wouldn’t have to look after your refrigerator, right? Unfortunately, if you’re going to want a long lasting system, you’re going to have to put the work in! If you neglect your refrigerator for an extended period, you could risk issues appearing that can seriously damage performance if not rectified quickly.
