Hey I am with you – you already own a deep freeze – or you just don’t need a freezer.
No problem, we’ll show you where to find a selection of freezerless refrigerators to choose from.
Some may wonder exactly why anyone would choose a freezerless refrigerator over a full blown unit. It’s really not that hard to figure out. Let’s take a quick look at some of the advantages:
They are usually smaller. This is huge if you are in a dorm room or an apartment. Also, bear in mind that if you are looking at a compact refrigerator, and you get one with a freezer, that freezer will be tiny and mostly useless.
Refrigerators with freezers use a LOT more electricity. Just think how much more power it takes to get the box down to 25 degrees or so, compared to just 40 degrees. When the compressor for that freezer clicks on, it will generate a lot of heat. I know this is a little counter-intuitive, but remember that the heat the compressor pulls out of the fridge has to go somewhere, and the harder the compressor works, the more heat it produces.
Refrigerators with freezers break down more often. Not that hard to understand – more parts equals more chances for something to go wrong.
Maybe you have a really big kitchen, and you need to feed a lot of people: You may want separate free-standing refrigerators and freezers.
Wow. That is actually a longer list than I thought we would have. So it makes plenty of sense to get a freezerless refrigerator. Where can wee find one? More good news. Most of the leading manufacturers of regular refrigerators also make freezerless units! This is huge – you can just look at brands you already know and trust. So instead of hunting down some fly by night builder, you can enjoy a real warranty and service from a name brand.
In addition, if you choose a well-known brand, you have a much better chance of seeing your new frig in person at a local store, although for the most part, you will have to do your research online.
