2020 is officially the year of the freezer (to us, anyway), and this means that more and more people are buying freezers – often the second or third one for their home. A lot of these new secondary freezers end up in the garage, and that may not be the best place for them. Some freezers are built for the varying temperatures that garage ready freezers can experience, and some aren’t.
Luckily, we have Danby freezers in our lineup that we have started classifying as GARAGE READY.
What is Garage Ready?
Basically, in order to be considered a Garage ready freezer, it needs to be able to perform normally in temperatures ranging from 0F to 110F (-17C to 43C). Depending on where you live, the Garage Ready classification might not be a concern. But in most places, especially with colder winters or hot, humid summers, it’s something to think about.
Why is a Garage Ready freezer important?
You want to make sure that the contents of your freezer stay frozen, no matter where you live or the time of year. If it’s inside your home, this isn’t an issue – but with new freezers being added to your garage, it matters. Nowadays, to avoid leaving the house regularly, people are buying in bulk and storing food. If you don’t have the room inside, you need to have your freezer in the garage.
