One of the problems of installing a compressor in a extremely cold spot is the viscosity of the compressor oil increases. It can be very hard on motor, the electrical wiring to the compressor and the breaker in the service box. When the compressor is hard to turn over everything else gets very hot. Tripping breakers is never good. If it gets very cold where you put your compressor your going to have to get some heat around it.
