Can You Have Your Walk In Cooler Installed Outside?

In most cities, you cannot every install your walk in cooler outside.  Your commercial refrigerator has to be inside the property, is probably already installed, and there’s nowhere outside to put it anyway because the rest of the building is taken up by things other than your restaurant.  If you are building your restaurant building yourself and you get to choose what the building looks like, you may want to look into putting the cooler outside with only the entrance on the inside of the building.

This is doable, but there are things to keep in mind. The parts of the refrigerator have to keep food at a steady temperature.  While almost all cases involve being able to take heat out of the food that is put into them, such as hot leftovers, refrigerators aren’t ‘smart’ enough to be able to use out door temperatures to help them.  If the dial on the temperature control marks it as ‘zero degrees’, and it is four degrees below zero outside, many freezers will ‘warm’ up to try to keep the food at zero degrees instead of allowing the food to drop down to four degrees.  This places considerable strain on the mechanisms of the machine.

A refrigerator kept indoors only has to keep the food colder than room temperature, and room temperature will generally be about the same throughout the day, fluctuating at most, ten degrees between the hottest part of the day in the hottest part of the year and the coldest part of the night in the coldest part of the year.  An outdoor refrigerator will have to deal with much larger temperature swings, ranging in the fifty degree fluctuations or more throughout the year, which can wear out the mechanisms.  It is often cheaper and a better idea to simply place the refrigerator indoors so it can take advantage of the rest of the building’s temperature being maintained instead of trying to make it compete with the outdoor temperatures and wearing out the mechanisms.  Commercial refrigerator models can last twenty years or more, but only if allowed to function correctly and properly cared for.
