Commercial refrigerator or Electrolux?
opphop
February 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have hunted for a side-by-side or french door refrigerator but don't see any we like. Any feeback on the success we might have installing a commercial brand like True T-49 or an Electrolux all-refrigerator installed side-by-side with their all-freezer unit?

Dual left and right Viking Fridges are great for a kitchen, plenty of space and two separate freezers.

Refrigerators are energy hogs. They run constantly and commercial refrigerators are worse than residential...they have less insulation and weatherstripping gaskets. The compressor/condenser is loud and usually located in an exposed location A significant rise in your power bill could be a shock, especially after paying more for the unit upfront. I have not heard anything good about the Electrolux appliances, one of my friends had a gas leak in his range that took 6 months to resolve...He ended up having parts machined (they are Swedish) and fixing it himself. For the money, a Sub-Zero refrigerator side by side with a Sub-zero freezer provides better energy ratings and more style than the commercial units. For that commercial look, they are available with an insulated glass front.

Hey, Ironwood Man! Thanks for your input. I was just considering getting a Sub-Zero Pro 48 or getting a sub-zero 700 all refrig and putting it right next to a sub-zero 700 all freezer. It seems like that would be more bang for the buck and work as well as a Pro 48. Anyone have any feedback on this?? Thanks in advance for any insight!!
