Can't find a dual tap kegerator for $480, including shipping. At least I couldn't a week or two ago! You will have to drill 4 holes in the top for the tower, but that's it. I've had mine running all day and it's stayed steady at 37F.
Hope this helps!
Long shot that you'll see this...
I have a line on one of these used for $200. It looks like a good idea, and I'll likely get it, but I can't find anything about it's power consumption. Considering I'm on Long Island and we pay ridiculous energy rates, I need to be aware of these things when I make purchases!
This is a genuine compressor run fridge, right? Not a cooler that is always-on? Did you notice any appreciable jump in electricity when you started using it?
I have a coworker that bought a wine cooler from Home Depot and his bill jumped $80, since it was a Thermoelectric Cooler, not a refrigerator.
Any info would be appreciated!
