5 reasons your business should use genuine & approved aftermarket products for your refrigeration system

Purchasing genuine and aftermarket refrigeration products may seem like a costly approach to maintaining your refrigeration systems. However, paying a little extra at the outset can save your business time and money in the long run. Here’s five reasons why your business should use genuine & aftermarket products for your refrigeration.

1. Reduce risk

Often cheap parts are cheap for a reason – they are not suitable to carry out the job required. Fitting approved parts reduces the risk of premature failure.

2. Further damage to your system

Fitting non genuine spurious parts can lead to catastrophic failure of other fridge components. For example a simple change of condenser fan motor can lead to compressor failure if the fan does not run to the same efficiency as the OEM spec, unfortunately this is a common fault.

3. Peace of Mind

Knowing the parts being replaced are approved by the manufacturer gives the end user peace of mind for a number of reasons – the main being that most often parts have a year warranty inclusive in the price, many pattern spares do not.

4. Legal regulations

Pattern parts may not meet with legal regulations – Whilst some pattern parts are very good, often to the same spec as OEM, the UK has been flooded with inferior and cheap fridge spares in the last 4-5 years. These parts can and will end up costing the end user more money. Most of these inferior parts are sourced from countries that fall outside the standards of the EU. All parts sold by TTC Refrigeration conform to European Standards (CE).

5. Price

Quite often the price between OEM and non-genuine parts is not so different, if you pay cheap, it is inevitable you will pay twice.
