Your refrigerator is used on a daily basis. You store items and prepare meals for yourself and family. Refrigerator problems can be a major concern if they are not addressed quickly and correctly. Food spoilage, waste and, in a worst case scenario, illness from food borne pathogens, can cause economic hardship and frustration.

Refrigerators allow for extended food storage by cooling and thermally insulating food at a constant 37-41° F. Refrigeration slows the rate at which bacteria, which can cause spoilage, illness and shorten the shelf life of food, reproduces.

Refrigerator Types

  • Top Freezer
    Top freezers are the most common refrigerators today. They tend to offer fewer features than other designs. Their design makes some top and bottom shelf items difficult to access.
  • Bottom Freezer
    Bottom Freezers make the refrigerator items easier to access without the need to bend. Frozen items on the other hand, may be more difficult to obtain than in other designs.
  • Side-by-Side
    This configuration places the refrigeration and freezer sections adjacent to each other, allowing easier access to both frozen and refrigerated items. With many adjustable shelves in both compartments, getting items to fit is easily accomplished. They typically offer more complex features such as in the door ice and water dispensing.
  • French Door
    These offer the convenience of having side-by-side door to access the refrigerated section with the freezer portion at the bottom. They are versatile and accommodate a wide variety of food storage options.
  • Compact
    Designed for tight spaces such as dorm rooms, home offices and under counters. These compact units provide much less storage capacity than full sized units.
  • Freezerless
    These models offer the entire interior dedicated to refrigeration, the down side is that you will need a full sized freezer as well.
  • Built-ins or Counter Depth
    Designed to be shallower than a traditional refrigerator, allowing them to blend with your cabinetry.
