Actually fridges are 'heat pumps' and generate much less heat then most
people think. The heat coming off the back coils is mostly just what has
'leaked' into it from the kitchen.

Another thing to consider: all fridges get warm; some/most commercial
fridges put out so much heat that kitchens become almost unbearably hot. If
your kitchen is smallish or air conditioned know that the room could get an
order-of-magnitude warmer. I have worked on projects where adjustment in AC
output took into account the BTU?s generated by fridges and freezers.
