Drink Fridges

 

Factors to Consider when Buying Drinks Fridges

It is a good idea to store your beverages such as beer and sodas in drinks fridges. In this way, the space issue in a regular fridge is avoided. It is small enough to fit in a kitchen but ‘big’ enough in terms of space for your cans of beer, sodas, water, etc. . Listed below are the factors to consider when you want to buy drinks fridges:

The capacity

This factor depends on how you will use it. If you will use it for commercial purposes, then you need to look for one that is big enough to accommodate the amount of drinks that you think you will need for a single day. Then, you can replenish the drinks fridges the following day. If it is only for home use, then select one will perfectly fit in the kitchen. It should always run at a maximum capacity so as to prevent waste on fuel use.

Energy efficiency

Only consider the size that you can fill with beverages; otherwise, it will add more cost to your monthly electric bill because the available or unused space on the drinks fridges do use electricity to cool the unused space.

The appearance

This type of cooling device comes in many styles and finishing. It all depends on your preference as it comes in wood finish to metal finish. You can even custom-design it according to your liking, but of course, with additional fee.

Proper care of drinks fridges

1) Before you install the fridge at your area, let it stand for at least two hours. This is done to prevent malfunction of the machine brought about by the process of transporting the fridge.

2) Do not install it in an area where it will be hit by direct sunlight which will cause damage to its acrylic coating. Plus the heat from direct sunlight will make the compressor work harder.

3) If you will be away for few days, it is best to turn-off the drinks fridges and clean it before you leave to prevent the growth of molds and mildew.

4) Check the compressor if it constantly turns on and off. If it does, it could mean that the compressor is working too hard because you filled it up with too much beverages. It could also mean the door of the drinks fridges is constantly opened and closed which also makes the compressor works harder.
