Off grid, looking for a refrigerator that will bring my inverter out of standby
I am looking for some advice regarding the purchase of a new refrigerator. For background, I use an AIMS 3 kw pure sine wave inverter. It is a great inverter and I really like the standby (sleep) feature. When my refrigerator needs to start it brings the inverter out of sleep mode and for me that is a great advantage as I am able to conserve power, especially when I am not home and there are no other loads. Now, I would like to buy another refrigerator but the modern technology is causing some consternation. My daughter also off grid, purchased a refrigerator recently, and it will not bring the same inverter out of standby. Therefore she has to be 'on' all the time, no 'standby'. This uses more power. For those who live in the Great White (meaning snow) North, saving power is important, especially in Nov-Dec. So, I do not have enough faith in local retailers to tell me if I am buying the correct fridge for my needs.
