Tips on Buying a New Freezer
Before You Buy a New Freezer
Review of Many Freezer Choices Available at UAKC
If you have a hunter in your family, live on a farm where you raise and butcher farm animals, or simply buy in bulk, then you may be a candidate for a full-sized freezer. It's great to have a utility room or other inside space for your freezer. Unfortunately though, it's often necessary to put your freezer in the garage. The downside of this is temperature variations may cause the freezer to work harder, and use more energy.
Most likely you'll choose between a chest freezer and an upright freezer. Obviously, a chest freezer will take more floor space, and you may have to dig a little to find what you need, but chest freezers are less expensive. With an upright freezer, you'll have multiple shelves, and it will be easier to view and access the contents. Upright freezers are more expensive, and cost a bit more to run.
Inside All Freezer options
Having All Refrigerators and All Freezers in the kitchen has become increasingly popular. Frigidaire has offered this option for a long time. The photo above is the latest offering of a matching refrigerator/freezer pair from Frigidaire Professional. Other brands such as Miele, Thermador, and Sub Zero also make various Column configurations of separate refrigerators and freezers. Dacor has now jumped on the band wagon with their high tech columns. The all refrigerator/all freezer is definitely worth consideration for a complete food preservation solution if you have the budget.
Under-counter Freezers and Freezer Drawers
If you just need more freezer capacity but don't need a full-sized freezer, consider purchasing an under counter freezer or freezer drawers. They're designed to fit under a standard 36 inch tall cabinet. Depending on the brand they'll be about 32-33 inches tall. If you've got a 24, 27, and even a 30 inch wide space, this might be a great solution for you. Sub Zero probably has the largest selection of undercounter refrigeration and freezer products you can find anywhere in a single brand, but there are many choices among other brands at UAKC as well. The drawer models consist of various configurations including combinations of freezer and refrigerator drawers, and built-in ice makers.
As you can tell, there's a lot to think about here. For the best choices and the lowest prices you should call or visit the experts at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center today.
