Popejoy Refrigeration Service

Businesses in Pontiac, Morris, Streator, Braidwood, Coal City, Dwight, Fairbury, El Paso, Gibson City, Lexington, Chenoa, Gilman, IL, and surrounding area that handle perishable items depend heavily on their refrigeration systems to keep critical inventory crisp and fresh. Ice makers, commercial refrigerators, beer dispensers, freezers and cool rooms all play an important role in food services and the hospitality industry.

Proper storage of refrigerated items requires maintaining rigid temperature and humidity parameters. If one of your essential appliances malfunctions, it can impact sales, degrade operational efficiency and affect employee productivity. Hospitals and other businesses involved in human services often integrate commercial refrigeration systems directly into their core processes, which means an equipment breakdown can have disastrous consequences.

Commercial Refrigeration Service

Commercial refrigeration systems generally operate in the same way that conventional air conditioners do, but with some notable differences. Service techs must possess a complete understanding of high-voltage electrical systems and the commercial refrigeration cycle. At Popejoy Plumbing, Heating, Electric and Geothermal, our trained technicians are certified to diagnose and repair problems related to refrigerant charging, air side fundamentals, electrical systems and mechanical components.

An experienced commercial refrigeration contractor understands the impact of a refrigeration appliance malfunction. Our trained technicians are equipped with leading-edge diagnostic equipment so they can quickly locate the problem and make the appropriate repairs. We understand that a refrigeration appliance breakdown is time sensitive, so we provide 24/7 emergency service for serious situations. No matter when you contact us, our goal is to fix the faulty unit as quickly as possible.
