How much heat does the fridge generate to the home?

A: Very little. We don't know the exact amount of BTU's, but of the thousands of Servels have been sold and we've only heard of 2 instances where heat generation was an issue. In both cases, it was because the fridge was in a very small and airtight room.

Is it necessary to vent to the outside?

A: No. Until recently Servel did not even offer a vent kit. They added a vent kit because the fridge needs 2" clearance to the sides, and 4" clearance on the top. If that's not available, then the vent kit should be used. (don't have cost on that right now)

I've heard that an outside drain is necessary? A: No, the Servel does not use or need an outside drain. Condensation around the coils does occur. The water from this drops into a pan and evaporates without the need of any user intervention.
