They're not that heavy and should easily fit in the trunk if the backseat folds down. Mine came with a pamphlet that claims it uses 330 kWh/year. I think that's $30/year?try to get it from somewhere that will deliver it for you. You'll need a larger vehicle and a couple strong hands to help you move that thing personally. They also consume quite a bit of power. That's all I know.
I have a friend in Vermont who hates the sound of a refrigerator so much that he actually doesn't have one at all. In winter he keeps perishables out on his porch and in summer he keeps a cooler in the kitchen that he fills with ice bought at the gas station.The main issue beside the size is the noise.
Ok...I'll bite.I have a friend in Vermont who hates the sound of a refrigerator so much that he actually doesn't have one at all. In winter he keeps perishables out on his porch and in summer he keeps a cooler in the kitchen that he fills with ice bought at the gas station.
The cooler might work depending on what you need the fridge for. If you're renting a room in a house, you could use the owner's fridge to freeze those little cooler blocks, which will keep a good well-insulated cooler cold for a couple of days before you need to freeze them again.
I actually have exactly the same question. I want to buy a small fridge for my office, but I'm worried that the noise will end up driving me crazy.I've just moved in a bedroom in a house. I would like to have a small fridge in my bedroom. I've seen a few at Zellers for $100 and $200. The main issue beside the size is the noise. Any advice on that particular issue? Thanks.
Extreme depends what one's personal views of extreme constitutes though, doesn't it?Brad: your friend sounds a little, shall we say, eccentric. One would think that keeping delicious perishables on his porch tends to invite the local wildlife for a feast. I'm sure he could find a fridge that had a quiet enough compressor to satisfy him. Not using a fridge is a bit extreme.
He qualifies for that description! ;-) But there's a crucial bit of information that I left out, which is that he makes musical instruments for a living, and he doesn't want the hum from a fridge or other appliance to affect him while he's testing the sound. And he works at home, it's a small house, and even if he put a fridge in the basement he'd still be able to hear it in his workshop.Brad: your friend sounds a little, shall we say, eccentric.
Bad idea. Chances are you'll forget to plug it back in and when you come home after work the next day everything will be melted.How about unplugging the power before going to sleep and plugging it back on when I wake up?
