What are the benefits of a bottom mount refrigerator?


Bottom mount refrigerators are in style and more common in homes opposed to the traditional top mounted units with a freezer up top. More homeowners are getting bottom mount refrigerators, but why choose a bottom mount refrigerator? We will be sharing a few benefits of bottom mount refrigerator.

Easy to Reach

Most refrigerator units have freezers up top which means everything else is stored in the lower drawers of the refrigerator. This means that every time you want a snack or are planning on cooking, you need to bend down to reach certain items. This is inconvenient for many people because not everyone is young and flexible. Frozen foods are used less frequently, so it makes sense for the more common food to be stored above and within easy reach.

Space for Large Food Items

Side-by-side refrigerators have less space because each side has a limited amount of width to it so you are not able to put larger food items without it being lopsided or out of place. On the other hand, bottom mount refrigerators have a wider width because the freezer is on the bottom and larger items can be placed in both the freezer and fridge areas.

Greater Energy Efficiency

Warm air rises into the freezer area which causes the refrigerator to work harder to maintain the temperature. Old-styled refrigerators have cooling areas below the freezer and are less efficient than bottom mount fridges because the freezer is on the bottom so warm air simply rises to the ceiling.
