San Angelo Commercial Ice Makers


“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” While that may be true for some things, when it comes to a commercial ice maker, there are indicators that it’s time to replace your commercial ice machine. Consider these things before you have a business-halting need for repair:


Changing needs for volume of ice – We are all concerned about value and efficiency, and making sure that your ice production needs match your machine is an important consideration. Restaurants, churches and businesses have different requirements for volume of ice. Has the number of users or menu changes affected the amount of ice you need to produce?


Watching your water and energy bills – A commercial ice maker can last 10 years or longer, based on volume of use and regular maintenance. However, in the last several years, manufacturers have made enormous strides in both the water and energy efficiency of ice makers. Energy Star-rated ice makers can save up to 15% more energy than less efficient machines, and qualify for LEED credits. Water efficient machines are air-cooled instead of water-cooled, which means less water is used in the production of ice. The desire for water or energy savings may make it a good time to buy or lease a new ice maker.


Breaking down or excessive wear and tear – Take a look at your repair history to see if you are spending an inordinate amount on repair bills. Also, are components of your ice maker, such as the evaporator, wearing out? Over-worn parts are less efficient and less productive, causing stress on peak demand times. The need to replace some expensive parts can point to considering a new machine.
