Proud owners of Sub-Zero appliances know that their purchase is supported by more than 70 years of experience and research, but do they know what has made Sub-Zero one of the top manufacturers of refrigeration appliances?
Sub-Zero engineers are dedicated to technological innovations when it comes to refrigeration and, not surprisingly, the brand has become one of the top refrigerator lines around. You may be asking yourself, “What kind of innovations could there really be when it comes to refrigerators?” Well, Sub-Zero seems to think there’s always room for improvement. Here are a couple behind-the-scenes technologies that make these refrigerators stand out from the pack.
Challenge: Food Preservation
Sub-Zero brings the science of food preservation to a whole new level. Not only do frozen and fresh foods require different conditions to stay fresh, but every time you open the door, those conditions change.
Solution: Sub-Zero’s solution to this issue comes in the form of Dual Refrigeration. The freezer and the refrigerator each have its own dedicated compressor that maintains the ideal conditions needed to keep food fresher, longer. With separate, sealed compartments for the refrigerator and freezer, your ice won’t absorb the aroma of last night’s dinner and your refrigerator won’t leak the humid air needed to keep food fresh.
Result: The quality and freshness of meats and produce are maintained. Impressively, Sub-Zero owners have seen their fruits and vegetables last 20% longer.
Challenge: Energy Efficiency
Sub-Zero is committed to creating environmentally friendly products. In most homes, refrigerators are one of the main culprits of energy use and high utility bills, but energy consumption from refrigerators begins well before home installation. From manufacturing resources, materials, shipping and home use, Sub-Zero was dedicated to finding a way to be “good stewards for the environment” from start to finish.
Solution: With energy efficient motors and no ozone-depleting materials, Sub-Zero refrigerators are easy on the environment. All Sub-Zero products are also manufactured in the United States, so there are no overseas shipping costs or extra manufacturing resources — the entire cost of your refrigeration unit goes to high-end material, design and unsurpassed development expertise.
Result: More than a dozen Sub-Zero’s products are EnergyStar rated. Even the largest Sub-Zero refrigerator consumes less power than a 100-watt light bulb!
A refrigerator with a professional look and incredible functionality should not have to compromise on design. After inventing the first freestanding freezer and the first built-in refrigerator, Sub-Zero knew it had set the design standards extremely high.
Solution: Sub-Zero products have a timeless design and are built to last — 56% longer than other refrigerators, in fact. You can choose any look from stainless steel to custom cabinet panels so your refrigerator fits seamlessly into your kitchen design. The interior is just as versatile, with nano-coated shelves to hold spills, adjustable drawers and dividers, and a tight seal to keep your food fresh.
Result: Designers and homeowners love the different options Sub-Zero refrigerators offer. Their timeless design and exceptional performance make Sub-Zero refrigerator a lifetime investment.
