Choosing The Right Marine Refrigerator For Your Boat
Choosing the right marine refrigeration unit for your boat can be a little tricky. There are many styles of refrigeration systems available in a variety of finishes and in different price ranges. Choosing the proper style that would best suit your marine fridge is only the first step in locating the right refrigerator or cooler, but an essential one to take before moving onto the next stage of the purchase process… Let’s look at these main types of refrigeration units and how they differ from one another.
Compact Refrigerators – These are the perfect size for most vessels as well as most kitchen cabinets. The compact refrigerators come with a single cooling compartment and a storage area for ice and other liquids. The compressor is not required for operation of this unit and will only need a moderate amount of electricity to run. These are ideal for storing perishable goods and keeping cool when on the water.
Combination Refrigerators – These units will store food and beverages, as well as keeping food fresh, and cool with both ice and water. This refrigerator style comes in many sizes and shapes and can provide a good amount of storage space and cooling areas. This model will use more power than most others but is much less expensive. The cons of this model are that they will take up more room than most other refrigerator types and will use a great deal more electricity.
Refrigerators With Energy Efficient Cooling Technology – These refrigerators are extremely energy-efficient when it comes to cooling. This makes them the perfect solution for keeping food cool during long journeys or extensive periods at sea. The refrigeration systems are silent operation and will provide you with very efficient cooling. The cons of this refrigerator type are that they cost more than other refrigerator styles and use more energy than others. If you need a refrigerator that has all of the above benefits and consumes very little energy, then this is the model for you. Be sure to check out energy-efficient refrigerators before choosing one for your boat.
