Air-cooled nugget ice machines are generally considered the most economical and cost-effective. They don’t require extra water to run and often achieve Energy Star certifications. They rely on ambient temperature to be able to freeze water efficiently and produce maximum ice possible. Make sure to consider some extra clearance space to allow for ventilation.
On the other hand, water-cooled nugget ice machines are ideal for environments where the air temperature is regularly higher than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. They may also be a better choice in commercial kitchens and other spaces with poor air circulation and a higher level of air contaminants.
