I am purchasing a 14.1 cu ft freezer to place in our basement. Is is necessary to put the freezer on its own circuit, or can I just plug it into an existing outlet?

Most people use existing outlets.
If you're uncomfortable with that, read the mfr. instructions that come with the freezer.

You might have ground fault receptacles in your basement. You might not want to put a freezer on that circuit. It could falsly trip and ruin everything in the freezer.

If your freezer will store anything of value then it would be wise to address the circuit supplying it with due concern

Better to run a separate circuit because the basement cicuits are most likely protected by a GFCI.
