Once the freezer has actually cooled down to the appropriate temperature to freeze items, due to the insulation and all, does it make a difference what the temperature is outside? It's basically on maintenance after it gets to the desired temp.Yes, it makes a difference. It determines the amount of energy needed to keep the food cold and therefore the costs. The larger the difference in temperature between the outside air and inside the freeze, the higher the energy losses which leads to higher cost. Think of it this way. Stan(sam4d) in Maine may be able to turn his freezer (if he has one) off in the winter if it is kept outside in a garage.-PSU
