Seperate condenser for fridge/freezer

Like a car A/C system, using an outside condenser

Instead of a fridge/freezer coming with a fixed condenser radiator on the back, it should come with no refridgerant or radiator on the back.

Instead, you mount an outside condenser (preferably in a shady place) and connect it up to your fridge freezer using the thick hoses that car A/C systems use.

Shops could provide a coolant discharge/recharge with every purchase.

I think this would make fridge/freezers more efficient (particulalry in cold countries) by reducing compressor pump load and you wouldn't be fighting the home heating in cooling your fridge/freezer.

Same idea, I think. [phoenix, Jul 09 2008]


       You could have a cooling tower outside for your fridge's condenser to be mounted in.   

       The whole thing seems a bit dubious, economically speaking.

       I'm not sure I want to be messing about with the stuff - my kitchen will be swimming in Freon before I could say "frozen pastry".

       Put your freezer outside. We do in our house (there isn't much space in the kitchen)

       This is already baked. Its a common practice for large commercial freezer units. Except instead of "thick hoses" they use the same thin copper tubing as central AC units. Central air is also a baked version of this idea, in many installations...
