I am renovating the kitchens and I would like to place the fridge fairly close to the radiator, about 15cm, is it feasible? Of course, the radiator only heats during the heating season. I am asking for advice.
If you absolutely have to and put it to this radiator with the back, I suggest making a screen about 5-7 cm behind the condenser. I would use a styrofoam with a thickness of 2 cm covered on the side facing the heater with aluminum foil. If the radiator is on the side, the problem is less. Any screen is enough.
To increase the efficiency of the refrigerator, turn off the heater in winter. Of course it was a joke, but you can't fool physics. As colleagues wrote earlier, you need to minimize the influence of the radiator on the "cooler" of the refrigerator through thermal insulation. 8)
The refrigerator is designed to cool Heat the radiator If there is such a combination by inserting insulation, then if you isolate the radiator, it will not heat If it is a final renovation, it is better to do it so that the radiator will heat up and the refrigerator will freeze, for example, beer
ok, so yes the radiator is actually under the window. There will be a kitchen cupboard next to the radiator, and a fridge next to the cupboard, this is what it will look like in the end, so how do you advise.
