Three Tips To Get Your Fridge Running At Top Capacity

February 2022

It’s shaping up to be a very hot Aussie summer, so having everything running smoothly in your fridge, the drinks fridge out the back or even a full-blown commercial refrigeration system is more important than ever. Not just to keep your beer icy-cold, a well-working fridge can increase the longevity of ingredients and meals, keep you safer from bacteria born in the heat and help you save money on produce when it is frozen fresh. Your fridge is a huge investment, so make sure you are looking after it right. Here are three tips to ensure your fridge system is running at its best capacity.

1# Check It Out

Keeping dairy, meat and fresh produce cool is paramount – especially in the recent weather. If you’re a home cook or a commercial chef, your safety is crucial. Don’t risk it, get your refrigeration unit looked at by a fully licenced electrician today.

2# Regularly Defrost

Find your fridge’s instruction manual and perform a full fridge defrost and clean. Removing the ice build-up from the back can help get fans moving properly and also free up space in the compartments.

3# Minimise

We all love to treat ourselves at the shops and stock up on our favourites, but make sure your produce bin doesn’t become a graveyard for vegetables, or your condiment shelf doesn’t become a sticky mess of sauce. Making sure you are using what is in your fridge and keeping it to a minimum will keep your food clean, free from mould and give you an easier idea of the food you do have, to save you money on doubling up in the future.

January 2022

As an Australian, fire season is just another of the hardships we face. Depending on where you live and the type of heat in the year, it can be a very severe problem for a lot of Australian residents. This is why it is important that you prepare effectively for the fire season, to make sure you’re not in hot water as it hits us this summer.

1# Get Your Fire Alarm Professionally Checked

A working fire alarm is essential, and when summer’s heat beats down upon us, that essential becomes critical. Ensure your fire alarms and smoke detectors are meeting standards with Kerr’s Electrical. Working fire alarms save lives, so don’t leave this one out.

2# Clean Your Gutters

It may sound straightforward, but a lot of people forget. Get out there these holidays and ensure your gutters are clear of all leaves, sticks and debris.

If you are in an area where you may need to evacuate or stay and fight a fire, make sure you have a comprehensive plan if that time arises. Pack a fire emergency kit and stay up-to-date with the news.
