Repair Vs. Replace Equipment

Weighing the options of repairing equipment Vs. Replacement
are a common type of refrigeration equipment used in a variety of settings, such as restaurants, hotels, and convenience stores. When an ice machine breaks down, it can cause significant inconvenience and lost revenue. In such cases, repairing the ice machine can be a better option than purchasing a new one. Repairing an ice machine can include fixing or replacing parts that have malfunctioned, such as the compressor or evaporator. In some cases, the repair may involve simply cleaning the machine or replacing the water filter. These types of repairs are typically less expensive than buying a new ice machine, and can often be completed quickly, allowing the business to resume normal operations. It's also important to consider that purchasing new equipment is a significant investment, and in difficult economic times, it might be hard to justify such expenses. Therefore, repairing existing equipment can be a more cost-effective solution for businesses that are struggling to stay afloat. Furthermore, frequent maintenance and repairs can also increase the lifespan of the equipment. As a result, it's important for business owners to prioritize regular maintenance on their ice machines to help prevent breakdowns and prolong the equipment's lifespan.

Title 24 Lighting For Refrigeration Requirements

Here is some information we have found on Title 24 requirements for refrigeration lighting.  After review of the standard and discussion with the California Energy Commission for confirmation, dimming is not required for our walk-in applications. Freezers are specifically excluded from the dimming requirement. Coolers require at least 50% dimming and with our motion sensor, we provide 100% dimming. That is acceptable per the California Energy Commission.


For your reference, below are links to the actual code:  


  1. Coolers - The requirement of Section 130.1(c)6A of the 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards is applicable to lighting in aisle ways and open area in warehouse and must be equipped with occupant sensing controls that automatically reduce the lighting power by at least 50%. If the control shuts them off entirely meaning it reduces the lighting power by 100% that would be compliant with the standards
  2. Freezers – The provision in Section 140.6(a)3E of the above document states that walk-in freezers are exempt from the lighting wattage calculations – where freezer is defined as a space designed to operate at less than 28°F.  Meaning that the walk-in freezer refrigeration system is the only energy use used for calculations for acceptance to the standards requirements.
We will be more then happy to look into any requirements for the currents standards implemented in the state of California.

RE: does every part have a price?

lets talk gaskets; many sizes .. that's dimension ... many profiles, that's spec of the material gaskets are made from, and many mount-styles, that's how you install it - screw-in, push-in, snap-in... many colors... gotcha! that's a nope, not really.. usually black, grey, or occasionally blue..., if you don't know specifc mfg gasket part number for your unit, info from data plate will reveal all. and you do want the right gasket for your box the first time you order it, right? so, does every part have a price? the answer: not in this case, not for the first three people who need True gasket part number 810810... is that you? don't know? well now you know how to find out; just email your model and serial number, and we'll let you know ... your place in the that trifecta is held upon receipt of that info, and if that's your part; we'll send you one .. even if your gasket(s) still looks in good condition, wouldn't it be nice to have one on your shelf, so no panic in replacing when needed? no panic .. now there's a great phrase ... and great way to run your business. because maintaining your equipment is necessary, it should be satisfying .. well guess what? we think it can even be fun ... stay tuned to see how, but for now, a free part is a good start...
