Fridges & Freezers

Propane refrigerators and freezers operate even when the electric grid fails

Homeowners or cottage/cabin owners that are off-grid can rest easy with their propane fridge and freezer as they won’t be subject to power outages and will have more than 10 days to preserve their food with a standard 20-pound propane tank.

Paired with other propane-powered appliances, your propane refrigerator and freezer will give you significant savings without compromising performance. Propane is often cheaper than electricity, so owning propane appliances can help reduce your utility bill. Propane is a low-emission energy source and is much better for the environment than heating oil, and in some cases even electricity. It is a cost-effective, clean, environmentally friendly energy source.

The installation and maintenance of propane refrigerators and freezers, like any other gas-fired appliance, must be performed by a propane contractor. Check out our Member Listing to find a contractor near you.

Important note

A propane refrigerator or freezer that has just been plugged in takes longer to cool than its electric counterpart, up to ten hours depending on the size of the appliance and the amount of food.
It is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when it comes to installation, upgrades and clearances. All propane refrigerators and freezers require sufficient fresh air to operate safely and efficiently.
