The Window Refrigerator, A/C, Heater
Energy Efficient Appliance for Home or Office
Seeking a Manufacturer
Like a window A/C, the condenser (back) of the window refrigerator is outdoors. A refrigerator may also be added to a thru-the-wall A/C or heat pump (common in hotels, office buildings and rental units) installed under the window through an opening in the wall.
Advantages & Benefits:
Saves Electricity: Up to 80% during winter & cold nights. Up to 70% during fall, spring & summer
Less Expensive: When combined with a heat pump or A/C; it's one multi-functional appliance
Quieter: Its condenser is outdoors
Has direct access to solar & wind energy: Its condenser (back) is outdoors
1. Summer, Fall/Spring/Night By freezing water at night when it's colder outdoors. It allows the ice to melt during day when it's warmer outdoors.
Example: When the outdoor temperature is 80 °F, the window A/C consumes less electricity than when the outdoor temperature is 100 °F. The same is true of a window refrigerator. When outdoor temperature is 60 °F, 50 °F, 40 °F or 30 °F, the window refrigerator uses less electricity than a similar indoor refrigerator that is in a 70 °F or 80 °F kitchen day and night all year round.
According to Energy Information Administration's 2001 official energy statistics Table, refrigerators consumed 13.7% (156 billion kWh), freezers 3.5%, lighting 8.8% and TVs 2.9%. Every home has at least one refrigerator/freezer and it's never turned off.
