Garage-Ready Freezers

Posted on 10/20/2022

Are you in the market for a new freezer, but do not have the space for one inside your house? Many people purchase an additional freezer and store it in their garage due to limited space indoors.

If you are considering purchasing a second freezer and keeping it in your garage, you might not have considered what kind of impact putting this appliance in the garage could have. If you have hotter or even colder climates the freezer may not run properly. Most freezers are designed to run in a climate-controlled home.

So, what exactly would be an option for someone that has no choice but to put a freezer in the garage? Well, you could buy yourself a garage-ready freezer.

What is a Garage-Ready Freezer?

Garage-ready freezers are specifically designed to handle a larger fluctuation in external temperatures ranging from 0-110℉. This differs from other freezers that have a much smaller range of external temperatures within which they can operate.

So, why exactly is it important that these freezers can operate in such a wide range of temperatures? We live in a climate that has cold winters or extremely hot temperatures, your garage may get too cold (or too warm), and the freezer may stop working properly leading to food spoilage.

ConsumerReports.Org is a great resource on freezers and even has a list of the best Upright Freezers and Chest Freezers for your garage.


Did you know? When there is airflow behind your refrigerator or freezer, it operates more effectively. For better operation, pull the unit a few inches away from the wall.

Do I Need a Garage-Ready Freezer?

No, not everyone needs a garage-ready freezer, but for peace of mind, it would still be a worthwhile investment if you are in the market for a new freezer. These freezers usually come with better insulation and heavier duty parts making them more durable in mild temperatures and longer lasting.

We live in a climate that gets very cold during the winter and can get extremely hot during the summer and if you are planning to keep a freezer in your garage, a garage-ready freezer is a must. It can potentially save you money by not overworking the machine during hot temperatures. It will also maintain the temperature during the colder winter climates as well.

If you are living somewhere with a mild climate year-round and your garage is well-insulated, or if your garage is climate controlled, you will not have as much risk storing a regular freezer in your garage.
