The standard capacity of a refrigerator in cubic feet depends on the style of refrigerator. French door refrigerators have the largest capacity, ranging from between 16 to 32 cubic feet. Side-by-side refrigerators range from 19 to 30 cubic feet, and top freezer refrigerators range from 19 to 26 cubic feet.
Other smaller capacity refrigerators are available, such as bottom freezer, freezerless and compact refrigerators. Top freezer refrigerators tend to be the most common type of refrigerator, and a number of low-cost refrigerators are available for those who are budget-conscious. Additionally, these refrigerators save energy costs because the freezer and refrigerator use the same cooling source.
