What is the difference between a commercial beverage refrigerator and non-commercial?

The major differences between commercial and non-commercial refrigerators include:

  • attached freezer
  • size
  • cost
  • interior fan to circulate cold air
  • compressor power
  • heavy duty doors.

Non-commercial and commercial refrigerators are designed for two different jobs, and so have fundamentally different designs.

Commercial refrigerators have doors designed to be opened and closed often, and compressors that can handle the subsequent changes in temperature.  Commercial refrigerators also have fans to circulate cold air around all interior areas, and temperature regulation that allows for uniform cooling and different settings for different areas.  For instance, wine and beer can be stored at different temperatures. These two points can make commercial refrigerators a little more noisy than non-commercial refrigerators.  Commercial beverage refrigerators also have sliding doors or swinging doors that are designed for heavy use. The seals, handles and other door hardware are completely different from a home refrigerator. Finally, commercial beverage refrigerators do not usually come equipped with an attached freezer.

Can I use a commercial beverage refrigerator at home?

There are homes and situations where you certainly can use a commercial beverage refrigerator at home, but you should think about the following before you commit.  All the points mentioned above illustrate that commercial refrigerators have much more rugged durability and power than non-commercial refrigerators.

Do you have the space? Commercial refrigerators are designed for tight spaces, but overall are generally larger than non-commercial refrigerators   Advancements in engineering and design now allow for sound levels and energy efficiencies in commercial units that approach those of non-commercial refrigerators.

How Much Does Our Beverage Refrigerator Cost?

Cost can vary depending on the many choices Powers Equipment can offer your business. It’s most important to consider all your needs for the most cost-effective refrigerator that works for your establishment.

What is the proper temperature for a beverage refrigerator?

The best temperature will depend on the beverage of choice. Since most non-commercial refrigerators are around 35 degrees, they would be much too cold for a lot of beverages, hence the need for a beverage cooler.

Soda in general should be stored at around 40 degrees.

Milk tastes best at 35 degrees and should never go over 40 degrees according to the Western Dairy Association.

Can a wine refrigerator also be used for beer?

Wine and beer connoisseurs rejoice: Yes you can!. Just make sure you keep in mind the different temperatures for the type of beer or wine for ultimate flavors. Wines are served slightly chilled. If they are too cold, they can taste acidic. According to Skybar,

  • Light red wines should be chilled between 55 and 60 degrees,
  • Full body reds 50 to 55 degrees.
  • Light white wines should be 45 to 50 degrees
  • Full body whites 50 to 55 degrees
  • Sparkling wines are best at 45 to 48 degrees

Americans have a tendency to drink beer too cold as well.  According to Dummies.Com:

  • Aromatic beers such as pale ales should be stored and served at 40 to 42 degrees.
  • Belgian ales – 50 degrees or higher
  • Lagers – 42 to 48 degrees
  • Stouts – 55 degrees
