What is a Top Freezer Refrigerator?

yury, 12/01/2016

A top freezer refrigerator is exactly what it sounds like: A refrigerator designed with the freezer compartment at the top. You are probably very familiar with it, because this is the design that some of us might have had at home as children.

HOW IT WORKS

It remains a popular choice because physics makes this design both less expensive and more efficient. I am sure you have heard that heat rises, but did you realize that the corollary of that principal is that cold air falls? Well, it does.

OLD FASHIONED LOOK, MODERN DETAILS

The good news is that modern features, such as better internal organization, have made it into this traditional, familiar design. On the outside, it may look a lot like the refrigerator with which you grew up, but when you open either the freezer door or the refrigerator door, you may be surprised at the wealth of modern amenities inside.

These refrigerators can have glass shelves which are not only nicer, but also more functional. They are generally easier to clean and they also make it easier to find the item that you are seeking. The door shelves are likely to be deeper and may be modular, so that you can design the space to suit your unique storage needs. Top refrigerators can also come with ice makers to add a little home automation to your life in a hassle-free manner.

Modern design sensibilities have not been limited to the interior. They now come in a wide variety of colors, as well as being available in stainless steel. Although this design remains the most affordable and reliable one on the market, it comes with plenty of panache and modern design enhancements. At first glance, you might think it looks like grandma’s fridge, but take a second look. It absolutely isn’t and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much the details have improved inside this familiar design.
