Default Inverter compressor for Fridge/Freezer Kegerator/Fermentor

Hey All,

Long time lurker, first time poster here...

Am looking to build a fermenter/kegerator out of a side by side fridge.

I have seen a good few threads on builds (which were great). My concern is the cycling of the compressor.

Surely if we run a freezer at fridge temps, the compressor isn't going to have to work very hard, but won't there be an issue with it cycling on/off too frequently and thus shortening it's life?

Has anyone had any success with using an inverter compressor based fridge? Or are these too complicated to add the love/stc1000 temp sensors to?

Would appreciate your thoughts/advice.
