It is time to shop for a replacement refrigerator and you have strict requirements when it comes to the unit’s dimensions. Your current refrigerator is 29.63”W x 66.94” H x 33.37” D, so let’s look at your option.

The most traditional type of refrigerator available today is the top mount refrigerator. This refrigerator is configured with the smaller compartment, which is the freezer on the top and the larger fresh food compartment on the bottom.

The top mount refrigerator is perfect for those who frequently use the freezer; so you don’t have to keep bending down to take a look. So if you typically eat more frozen foods on a regular basis this refrigerator type is for you.
