Tips on How to Choose Off Grid Refrigerators & Freezers

Gas-Fridge offers tips on how to choose off grid refrigerators and freezers

Propane refrigerators are perfect for off grid living in vacation homes or hunting camps or your everyday home. They are small enough for remote cabins yet large enough for an entire ranch family. Other uses include natural disaster preparedness such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, or storms that create power outages. Propane Refrigerators do not have EMF emissions and are silent operating due to the non electric and simple design using no continuous moving parts. The quiet operation of a propane refrigerator will add enjoyment to any peaceful vacation environment. Simply supply the unit with propane or natural gas. No electricity needed. Gas-Fridge would like to give you some tips on how to choose the off-grid, gas refrigerator that’s right for your needs.

Size – What size unit you need depends on how much fresh produce you’ll typically consume. If you are a family, you may want to consider a 16-18 cubic foot unit. If you are single, you may want to check out something in the 7-10 cubic foot range. Most of us have been conditioned to believe that a larger unit is better but more often than not, it ends up with spoiled food because it’s easy to forget about items that aren’t easily seen. Conversely, a refrigerator that is too small can become a source of frustration because one can’t store all the items they need.

Cold Control – Choose a refrigerator with a thermostat that allows you to control the temperature. Freezers should remain between -15 and -18°C, while your fridge should be between 3 and 4°C. A one degree change can affect energy consumption by 5%.

Refrigerators for living off the grid should be the most efficient, lowest energy consumption available. Gas-Fridge is proud to bring you quality absorption refrigerators from EZ Freeze.
