Posted By: DamonHDMany domestic fridges and freezers may work *less* effectively or even be damaged AFAIK if the ambient temperature is much cooler than a typical indoors temperature, eg due to the nature of the working fluids which may become too viscous at low temperatures.You'd have to read the operating manual or tech specs.
Posted By: Ed DaviesIf you're having weather that requires heating the house then venting the fridge to outside will waste heat that would otherwise be helpful.

Posted By: Mike (Up North)Essentially yes, if the fridge were in a warm room and the condenser part were through the wall in a cooler utility room (effectively an AC split unit) then you would be transferring heat to the cooler room.Cheers, mike up north

Posted By: SteamyTeaI tried that with two fans, made no real difference.
