We service all equipment types – from self-contained stand-alone coolers and freezers employing only the basic components of a refrigeration system to central rack-style systems serving multiple remote coolers and freezers.

Ambrose Mechanical services all forms of commercial refrigeration systems and performs all phases of work including:

  • Planned maintenance
  • Diagnostics
  • Repair
  • Upgrades
  • Replacement
  • New design
  • Installation

Refrigerated Box Temperature – The temperature a refrigerated box operates at determines if it is classified. For example:

  • High-temperature systems operating at 47ᵒF to 60°F
  • Medium temperature systems operating at 28ᵒF to 40ᵒF
  • Low temperature systems operating at -20ᵒF to 0ᵒF
  • Ultra-low temperature systems operating below -20ᵒF

Small Systems Basic Components – Small self-contained coolers and freezers contain the basic components necessary to every refrigeration system. These are:

  • Compressor Condenser coil
  • Refrigerant metering device
  • Evaporator Coil

Larger Systems Components – Larger systems contain all the basic items above and additional specialty devices such as:

  • Multiple compressors for capacity control
  • Compressors with built-in capacity control
  • Solenoid valves
  • Thermostatic expansion valves
  • Electronic expansion valves
  • Evaporator pressure regulating valves
  • Head pressure regulating valves for low ambient operation 3-way heat recovery valves
  • Oil management systems


If your facility uses a lot of domestic hot water, a heat recovery system using heat that would be thrown away to heat your hot water can save a large amount of energy. Retrofitting your controls can also yield a large return on investment. Ask us about 24/7 monitoring and alarms to prevent the loss of your valuable products

See our HVACR Glossary of Terms for more details.
