The Ultimate Guide to Undercounter Refrigeration Shopping

February 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 212

A good number of homeowners will sometimes find themselves in need of a secondary refrigeration unit. However, due to the obvious reasons, especially availability of space and the constant trips to and from the main fridge while trying to prepare a meal in the kitchen, one may find himself or herself thinking about a smaller fridge for the kitchen. These mini fridges are the long-awaited answer to the question of space availability whether it is for the home kitchen, the office or even the hotel rooms. The undercounter refrigeration system may be placed under almost all of the places that have a counter, such as restaurants, bars and small apartments. This ensures that space has been utilized in the most efficient way. Shopping for the mini refrigeration system is not an easy task because one has to consider many factors.

The choice of the type, make and brand of the fridge unit to be purchased will mostly depend on the amount of money one wants to spend on it. The downside to these undercounter refrigeration system is that, to get one that has high quality, one has to dig deeper into his pockets. Most of them are between $1,500 to $3000 which lead to the question whether they are worth the cost. The refrigeration systems that are commonly used in the mini bars are a cheaper option. The problem is they do operate as efficiently as the expensive ones when placed in poorly ventilated spaces, like under the counter. However, it is advisable to avoid a packaged promotional deal because one may end up compromising the quality and performance of the refrigeration system.

Having mapped out a clear budget the next thing to put in mind is how one intends to use the mini fridge. This is because, in line with the use, a choice may be made on whether to buy an under counter freezer or a mini fridge instead. By considering the space available and the intended use, one can make a decision on the how the doors of the mini fridge should open for ease of access. If it can be placed in the most efficient way under the counter and still spare some valuable space, this could be an added advantage.

It is also wise to consider not only the design but also the exterior look of the mini fridge. Most of them have a remarkably simple yet classy exterior design. One may want to consider the exterior design of the compact refrigeration systems to match with the design of the counter they will be placed in. The small, more efficient but expensive refrigeration systems come in various assortments of finishes and one may even request for customization. Other factors to consider are the efficiency of the mini refrigeration system in terms of energy consumption. One that has an energy star ranking would be the smartest choice to go by.

If you keep all these undercounter factors in mind you cannot go wrong while shopping around for reliable and efficient undercounter refrigerator.
