A quick word on old Sears Coldspots. A years or so ago I bought a 1978's era Coldspot works great. After the purchase I learned that freezers built in 1994 and thereafter save a considerable amount of energy when compared to earlier models.
I have this unit on its own electrical panel and noticed that the monthly bill seemed pretty high for just a freezer and one computer. So I purchased a 'Kill-A-Watt' electrical use meter to see what energy the freezer actually uses. I learned that this old SOB uses almost $40 a month in electricity; I was surprised it was this expensive to run.
Now I'm hunting for a new freezer as I figure it will pay for itself within a year.
I know you aren't intending to use this as a freezer, but nonetheless thought I'd let you know how inefficient old freezer are.
