I am looking at putting an upright freezer in my attached garage.
A max-min thermometer, and other records, show that it
occasionally drops to 5C, but is generally comfortably above 10C,
possibly assisted by the hot water cylinder which lives there.
The various acceptable climate ranges all seem to stop at 10C
As far as I can see, the only manufacturer who states that they
will work comfortably below 10C (way down to -15C) is Beko, and I
am guessing they actually incorporate a small heater.
I know that refrigeration gases have changed, and modern
appliances do not behave like the old ones did, but I am tending
towards taking what I perceive to be quite a small risk by not
limiting myself to that make.
