Freezer Suitable for Outbuildings
What is Freezer Guard Technology
Did you know that when some freezers or fridge-freezers are used in an environment below 0°C it can cause them to stop functioning? If you plan to locate your freezer in a garage, conservatory, outbuilding or anywhere where the temperature may drop below freezing, Beko freezers and frost free fridge freezers with Freezer Guard technology are the perfect solution.
With Beko’s Freezer Guard technology, we can guarantee that your freezer will work in temperatures as low as -15°C or 5°F.
Please note, the fridge compartment will not work properly in low temperatures, so we recommend you only use the freezer compartment in low ambient temperatures and not the fridge compartment.
Why would I want to keep my freezer in a garage, outbuilding or utility room?
You may have limited space in your kitchen for a fridge-freezer or freezer, or bigger households may need a large capacity freezer where there are more mouths to feed. This is why storing a fridge freezer or chest freezer in a garage, outbuilding or utility room could help save space and reduce clutter in the kitchen.
So what happens to my fridge freezer at sub-zero temperatures?
If the outside temperature does drop below a certain level, the fridge thermostat believes it is cold enough and can turn the compressor off, causing the freezer contents to start to thaw. It is possible that the contents of your freezer can start to thaw out and then be re-frozen when the outside temperature warms up without you even knowing.
The food in your fridge compartment on the other hand, will start to freeze at 0°C and below, so we recommend you only use the freezer compartment in these low temperatures and not the fridge compartment.
We recommend you consume the food items in the fridge compartment in a controlled way as needed. When ambient temperature goes back to normal, you may use your fridge compartment as normal again.
