How Much Extra Space Does a Refrigerator Need for Air Circulation?

by Pat
(Toronto, Canada)

I'm not sure how much extra space I need for around my fridge for air circulation and proper venting.

I have an opening of 33" and I am looking at a side by side refrigerator measuring 32.75". Is it better to have some space on either side of the refrigerator to ensure good operation? I cannot seem to find a side by side under 32.75".

Thanks

Refrigerator Space
by: Amanda Elizabeth

You must read product's manual for such information as extra space required is entirely dependent on the refrigerator size and model. Some refrigerators are specially created for low space homes. You may also consult with a refrigerator mechanic in your area for this purpose. I need a custom essay on cooling devices.

Good clearance
by: Robert

As a mechanical engineering student, this was one of my favorite topics of interest. A fan is always provided inside the fridge. It serves the purpose of circulating the internal air. It is the air circulation that maintains the ideal temperature. Therefore it is important to have a good clearance.

Refrigerator Clearances for Air Circulation
by: Dennis

My Owner's Manual (KitchenAid) says 1/2" for sides and top for ventilation and "more" for back for icemaker tubing and electrical plug. BUT it has an exception:
If installed next to a wall, allow 2" on side next to wall so that door will open fully but MUCH more than 2" to remove drawers (I add - unless frig can be rolled forward and turned slightly to get more space to remove drawers.)
I would also add - If in an old house, or a newer one whose walls/floor are not vertical/horizontal, make sure top of frig will clear the upper wall cabinets. In my contractor built home, the upper cabinet are not exctly over the frig opening at the floor and are off vertical about a 1/2". Result is the frig touches the wall at the bottom left and at the top on the the upper right. 1" clear on both sides would roll in a LOT easier
