Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2420773A2] A refrigerator includes a heat transfer unit (300), which transfers heat generated from a machine room within a refrigerator main body (110) to a periphery of a home bar (200) so as to remove dew formed at the periphery of the home bar, and an insulating unit (600) for surrounding an outer circumference of the heat transfer unit. The refrigerator further includes a heating unit (700) installed to be thermally conductive with the heat transfer unit, and a non-conductive cover (800) for covering the heat transfer unit and the heating unit. Consequently, waste heat generated from the machine room, other than a separate power supply unit, can be used to prevent dew formation at the periphery of the home bar, so as to remarkably reduce power consumption.
