Kitchen Fitting Question

Ventilation for integrated under counter fridge

We want to install an Integrated Under Counter Fridge, plus separate Integrated Under Counter Freezer. Do you need a gap at the rear? if so how much?

2 Answers

Integral fridges are built differently to conventional free standing fridges so that they do not need venting.

air will circulate underneath the other base units anyway.

Just make sure that the plug socket for the fridge is flush mounted as you may find that the int fridge will stick out slightly once the door is fixed on as there is not alot of room once fitted.

With all integrated appliances, they will only fit in the one position and are designed with all air flow taken into account,
