Refrigerator, Freezer & Chiller
How long do refrigerators, freezers, and chillers usually last?
A unit for any of these appliances should last anywhere between 10-20 years. The older a unit gets, the more expensive repairs will be. If your fridge, chiller, or freezer is 10 years or older or you've started to spend more on repairs, then it is time to have them replaced.
What is the difference between a refrigerator, chiller, and freezer?
A refrigerator keeps things cool and is most suitable for keeping cooked and prepared items from spoiling. On the other hand, a freezer is used to preserve groceries by freezing them solid to prolong their storage life. Chillers are in between a refrigerator and freezer, keeping items at very cool temperatures without completely freezing them.
What should I consider before buying a freezer, refrigerator, or chiller?
Some things that you should consider are factors like design, space allotment, price range, and its energy efficiency. Choose models that can easily fit in your home but still have enough capacity to store all your groceries. Lastly, remember to buy something that is energy-efficient, as these appliances should be kept on and can increase your monthly electricity bill.
