Would it be more efficient in winter to have refrigerators and freezers be able to draw air from the outside?
This seems like such an obvious question that there must be some reason why it is not done. It seems like such a waste to have cooling units compete against the indoor heating system, when they could just suck in air from outside. Some people keep freezers in their garages. I would think that such units draw very little power in winter.
