Regardless of the type of business you are running, refrigeration can be a major component. That said, there is no denying that proper refrigeration plays an even bigger role in floral businesses. Why? Flowers need specific environments to thrive and look their best. Your flowers might live in ambient temperatures, but will they thrive? Will they be on display in all their beauty, tempting your customers? Probably not! A1 Denver Commercial Refrigeration Repair
That’s exactly what a floral refrigerator can help you accomplish. Many amateur florists think they can get away with using standard commercial refrigerators, but this isn’t the case at all. Regular commercial refrigerators don’t offer the humidity settings and constant gradual airflow or proper ventilation. The only thing a commercial refrigerator is good at is creating low humidity with a steady and constant airflow.
In its defense, that’s all a commercial refrigerator needs to do to keep food items and desserts at specific temperatures. Flowers need much more care. That’s exactly what the right floral refrigeration unit offers. These units are specifically designed with low-velocity fans and evaporator coils to ensure that the right type of airflow always blows across your flowers. Too much airflow and humidity could lead to dehydration and drying out. That’s where commercial refrigeration units fail.
Most flowers are at their best in temperatures of 33 to 35 degrees F. Floral refrigerators also often come equipped with additional temperature and humidity thermometers that allows you to monitor specific section of the refrigerator, giving you the option of storing roses in one section and azaleas in another. When you look at your figures right off, it will probably appear that you’ll save money by not investing in a floral refrigerator.
This might seem like the case, but these numbers likely don’t account for all the destroyed stock and missed sales. Floral units not only create natural and thriving environments for your arrangements, but they allow you to display them in all their beauty. Stick a floral refrigerator up front near your register, put together some interesting floral arrangements, and your customers will be enticed. With the right lighting and proper humidity, your floral arrangements will look fresh and alive. Your customers won’t be able to avoid the temptation.
