Gladiator® GarageWorks Launches ENERGY STAR® Qualified Chillerator® Garage Refrigerator
Newly Improved Chillerator Launched as Department of Energy Encourages Consumers to Recycle Old Fridge

Ten million "second" refrigerators are costing consumers over one billion dollars in energy costs annually. To combat some of this, Gladiator® GarageWorks is launching its newly improved ENERGY STAR® qualified Chillerator® garage refrigerator designed to run even more efficiently in the extreme garage environment.

The launch coincides with ENERGY STAR program's 2008 Recycle My Old Fridge campaign. The campaign encourages every American who owns an old, inefficient refrigerator to trade it in and buy a new ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator. In honor of the campaign, Gladiator brand is offering $100 off the purchase of a Chillerator® garage refrigerator and up to $50 off home delivery. Consumers can take advantage of this promotion and purchase the new Chillerator® garage refrigerator by visiting .

"The new Chillerator® garage refrigerator allows consumers to cut down on energy use and costs when compared to older, second refrigerators found in many garages," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing director, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "Most consumers don't realize old refrigerators consume energy in a time when every penny counts. Gladiator brand is pleased to offer this discount to help more people get energy efficient refrigerators in their garages."

The ENERGY STAR qualified Chillerator® garage refrigerator has built-in features that keep internal temperatures consistent regardless of external hot or cold temperatures. Beyond handling the extreme temperature and humidity of the garage environment, it also helps consumers save money by reducing energy consumption. Through the use of the newly improved Chillerator® garage refrigerator, consumers can save approximately $49 annually if they were previously using a same size top freezer model that was purchased between 1993 and 2000.

Gladiator® GarageWorks discount program will run from July 21, 2008 - Aug. 18, 2008. To learn more about the newly improved ENERGY STAR® qualified Chillerator® garage refrigerator, please visit
