Can I Put a Refrigerator in the Garage?

A refrigerator can be kept in a garage even if the garage is not heated, but modifications must be made to it in order for it to function properly in situations where the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. As the external temperature drops, the refrigerator works less efficiently.

A garage refrigerator kit can be purchased from a major appliance retailer or hardware store that can be used to allow the refrigerator to function normally even in lower temperatures. The kit emits a small amount of heat that serves to trick the compressor to function even during the cold months of winter.
