Garage Refrigerator

happsMarch 24, 2013

I have a thirty year old 30.7 cu ft side by side Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer in my garage that works well but is very poor on energy efficiency. I am not sure of the cu ft space of the freezer and refrigerator sections. The freezer section is usually 2/3rds full and the refrigerator part 1/2 full. I purchased a 7 cu ft. chest freezer at a big discount and as wondering size wise, what additional size refrigerator or top/down refrigerator/freezer would I need to purchase in order to have the same space for food items as I have now with the amounts full as stated above? Would you take a chance on a used unit made after July 1, 2001, which is the most recent energy efficient standard? I don't have a truck or SUV.

I would get two of these dedicated garage fridges.

Gladiator GARF19XXYK

Unlike typical refrigerators designed for inside the home, Chillerator Garage Refrigerator has a double pass heat loop that helps keep the unit's outer surface from sweating in high humidity environments.

Energy Star Qualified

20% more efficient than minimum current federal energy standards.

In-the-Door Can Rack

Allows easy access to 35 twelve-ounce cans of your favorite beverage. No more tracking dirt inside the house to get a cold drink.

Keeps Internal Temperatures Consistent

Keeps internal temperatures consistent, even in extreme heat/cold.

Refrigerator with Built-In Heater

Built-in heater keeps refrigerated items chilled inside, not frozen, even in very cold environments, with an operating range from 0-110 degrees Fahrenheit.
