Would this extreme temperature difference between the heat of the garage and the cold inside the freezer make the cost of running the freezer uneconomical? That's what I'm afraid of.I guess it would depend on the amount of food purchased and what you saved by buying in bulk. Tim (ziggy29) gave a good answer.The concern I would have other than the energy costs is the cycling of the compressor, in other words, how often does it turn on and off. All freezers will have a temperature range, an upper temperature where the compressor turns on and a lower temperature where it turns off.In your climate, a small temperature range would cause the compressor to turn on and off often. This would cause the compressor to wear out prematurely. If the temperature range is large, the food may degrade more quickly.Just a thought, no facts.-PSU"It's hard to be nostalic when you can't remember anything."
