The best comes in small packages. Especially if in summer we talk about a mini fridge . This modern and practical appliance is perfect for small kitchens and single-family homes, for the workplace or for a rental room. In addition, it can be a great auxiliary option for a terrace or a large house with several floors.
General conditions for the location
Whatever the space, some general conditions are necessary for the installation of a mini-refrigerator. Adapting to it will extend the useful life of the appliance and will maximize its energy efficiency.
- Temperature: It is the most decisive factor, since the work that the mini fridge does is to cool the hot air. If it is too high, it reduces the ability of the fridge to dissipate heat, which decreases its performance. For this reason, we must try to locate the mini fridge in a place that is as cool as possible.
- Aeration of the mini fridge : if it favors the circulation of air around the appliance, we can improve its efficiency, since this way it can dissipate the heat generated by the cooling. That is why you always have to leave a minimum space of 10 cm between the refrigerator and the wall and other furniture, even at the back of it. If it is placed at an angle, care must be taken that the corners also keep the minimum separation of 10 cm.
It must be remembered that the refrigerator takes in the cold air from the lower area and expels the hot one in the upper area. That is why the base is not too important, and it can be placed both on top of another piece of furniture and on the floor. But the upper part must be clear.
