One thing that is often forgotten is the ventilation space required. This varies depending on manufacturers, but we recommend a space of 5cm at the back and 3cm around the sides and at the top.

Besides, are American fridge freezers good?

American-style fridge freezers are perfect for large families, frozen food fans and anyone who simply wants the ultimate two-in-one refrigeration system. The fridge section comes with a considerable 341 litres of storage, with four shelves, two large salad crisper boxes and three large shelves in the door.

Do American style fridge freezers need plumbing in?

No, is the short answer. Some of the more advanced features that may have swayed your decision to go for an American fridge freezer do, however, rely on being plumbed in to your water supply. So if you're looking forward to unlimited ice and chilled water on tap, plumbing in may be the way to go.
