From convenience stores and restaurants to hospitals and funeral homes, there are many businesses that need to have cold storage facilities. Building cold storage facilities is a specialized business that not just any contractor can handle. There are many reasons a business needs an experienced cold storage builder to get the project done right.
Moving objects of different sizes in and out of cold storage can be a cumbersome process. The most efficient entryway for a cooler will vary depending on what products you need to store and how often you need access to them. Skilled contractors will work with you to find the most efficient way to quickly move your cold storage products in and out of the storage area.
With the rising costs of energy, it is important for any building to be as energy-efficient as possible. One of the highest costs of cold storage in California is the utility bills to operate the cooler or freezer. An inefficient cooler will waste a lot of energy and cause you to have unnecessarily high energy bills. Cold storage contractors can help you to retrofit your old system to save energy or build you a new cooling system in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
One of the most overlooked parts of building coolers, freezers, and other cold spaces is the impact of the low temperature on the surrounding base construction materials. In most areas of the country, cool spaces will result in moisture buildup on the outer surfaces of the cooler due to condensation from the surrounding air. The cool temperatures will also create additional stress on the building materials from expansion and contraction. Building cold storage in California can be especially difficult due to the state’s strict building code. Contractors with specialized cold storage knowledge and experience can help you through every step of the process.
