Recommendation for fridge service in Charleston?

by richardreavis » Wed May 16, 2018 9:10 am

Our Grunert AR-50 seems to be taking more and more time/energy to recharge the holding plates. I just did a pretty thorough descale, with no improvement. I know it is partly due to warmer temps and warmer waters. But I would like to get it checked out by someone equipped to recharge the refrigerant, if necessary.

Holding plate system. One compressor unit to chill separate fridge and freezer boxes. R109a refrigerant.

We are currently in Beaufort, and plan to spend some time in Charleston, starting in the next week or so.

Would rather not just blindly pick service guys from google.

Thanks!
