At Wilshire Refrigeration & Appliance, Inc., we are a premier dealer of Sub Zero refrigerators and other kitchen appliances. Buying a luxury refrigerator requires a lot of planning. The Sub Zero refrigerator price can be $7,500 or more, according to Consumer Reports.1 To make sure you get as much as you can out of that investment, this guide will cover the perks, model choices, and value of one of the leading refrigerator brands.
Why Buy a Sub Zero Refrigerator?
- Features: Standard features are available on all models, such as a vacuum-sealed doors that keep in the cold air, magnetic crisper drawers that hold in temperature-regulated air, and an air purification system inspired by NASA technology. Every 20 minutes, it removes ethylene gas, bacteria, and mold. Each fridge also has spill-resistant nano-coated shelves. Not to mention dual compressors so the refrigerator and freezer compartments work independently.
- Long Lasting: Can last for up to 20 years with proper maintenance, which is far longer than any competitor on the market. Each purchase comes with excellent service and support as well. You also get an industry leading 12-year warranty, so if in the normal use of your appliance it happens to need repairs, the work is covered so you save money. The sealed system, which includes its compressors, evaporators, condensers, driers, and tubing, is covered for five years.
- Fresh Food: Each refrigerator has smart systems that regulate the temperature of storage compartments. You can therefore store fruits and vegetables, meats, and seafood for longer while wasting fewer food products. A computerized air purification system circulates fresh air to control humidity and temperature fluctuations, while a microprocessor helps control temperature swings to within 1℉.
- Home Value: In addition to brand recognition, the function and versatility of a Sub Zero refrigerator can help increase the resale value of your home. Mention one in a real estate listing and you may see more buyers, and a potential increase in selling price.
- Design Choices: Standard-sized units range from 30 inches to 48 inches. However, refrigerators can be custom sized with columns. You can seamlessly combine different fridge and freezer sizes with factory-made trim kits. Refrigerators can be flush with cabinets or stand out, while numerous door options are available. You can have stainless steel, cabinet finish, or glass doors with your choice of handle options; for built-in models, you can use a solid stainless steel, wood cabinet, or louvered grille design for the top cover.
Single door, bottom freezer, side-by-side, and French door options are available as well as single door full fridge/freezers.
Sub Zero Refrigerator Configurations
- Built-In Refrigerators: Many consider this the classic look, as it was the original concept for the brand. It is defined by the slightly protruding doors, in relation to the cabinet surface. Your fridge stands out, although installing an inset can make the doors flush with the surrounding panels.
- Integrated Refrigerators: Flush-mounted with no exposed grills or hinges, they don’t require any space around the perimeter. Although there are over 30 different configuration options, integrated Sub Zero refrigerators are sold in two basic types; a column design that provides a complete refrigerator or freezer unit, and an “over-and-under” design with a bottom freezer compartment.
- Professional Series: The Pro 48 looks as though it belongs in a commercial kitchen, but fits perfectly well in a luxury home. It has three evaporators; one for the refrigerator, one for its drawers, and one for the freezer. Specialty delivery and installation requirements mean spending a bit more for delivery, but this top-of-the-line model can be worth it depending on how you use your kitchen.
Is the Price Worth It?
When looking at the Sub Zero refrigerator price, it’s important to note how long it can last and the fact it keeps food fresh. You won’t be replacing the unit anytime soon. There’s less money wasted on throwing away spoiled food items. Sub Zero refrigerators are also energy efficient, which can lower your utility bill. In addition to the peace of mind you get, these are great reasons to invest in one.
