Just bought a small chest freezer a few days ago to allow bulk beef purchases from local farmers.
For now, it is living in our unheated garage (attached to house) backed up to an inside wall. My wife asked if I had any concerns about keeping in the unheated garage. I hadn’t thought it would be a huge concern but would love to get some second opinions from folks that may have their own freezer-in-garage experience.
Our garage generally hovers around 40 degrees (even when it gets very cold outside) so I doubt that it will get below freezing unless we had a prolonged period of VERY cold weather, but it probably will be in the 30’s and 40’s for much of the winter.
I could potentially move it into our laundry room (which is inside the house) but would really prefer to leave in garage if possible.
