Cold Temperatures more a Problem

More of a problem is that most modern frost free refrigerators will not operate properly in a garage if it gets below about 50-60F where you live. Whirlpool has come out with a line of "Garage Appliances" which should function at and below that temperature. See the following link:

Whirlpool to Launch Garage Appliances

A refrigerator should operate Ok in temperatures up to about 100F, however, the warmer it is the more it will have to run in order to do its job and the more power it will consume.

BTW. A single refrigerator can consume up to 20-25% of a home's power supply. Adding an second one can increase power consumption considerably (even when running in normal room temperatures).
