FAQs : Minibar Ventilation
To ensure optimum cooling performance with minimum energy consumption, several basis principles need to be followed when installing an absorption minibar. The heat which the cooling unit extracts from the refrigerator interior is emitted at the back of the minibar.
There must be sufficient ventilation here to prevent build up of heat. The free ventilation space for incoming and outgoing air should be at least 200cm2. The distance from the rear of the minibar to the rear wall of the furniture must be at least 2cm.
When installing the minibar, ensure that it is standing a stable and horizontal surface, and not directly near a heat source.
