1) Is it OK to put a refrigerator in the garage?

Yes, you will be perfectly fine putting a fridge in your garage. Unless your fridge is going to be put in extreme climates (below 20 degrees or above 100 degrees) you shouldn’t have any issues.

We have had an old fridge in our garage (which would get up to 90+ in the summer and 30) and it did just fine. I wouldn’t spend money on a “garage fridge” for no added benefit.

The solution for a refrigerator in a really cold garage is to purchase this kit which heats the thermometer tricking the fridge into working. Otherwise it’ll shut itself off and the inside won’t freeze anymore.

2) What is a garage ready refrigerator?

A garage ready refrigerator isn’t anything special. It is specially fitted so that it will work in extreme climates (cold, specifically). Save money and purchase a normal fridge unless you live in a particularly cold place.

3) Can you keep a refrigerator in an unheated garage?

If you purchase a fridge that isn’t on this list, be wary if it has a front facing water attachment. You don’t want to keep your fridge running when the water can freeze over and cause damage.
