Refrigerator Energy Saving Tips:


  • The refrigerator should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of direct sunlight if possible.

  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator. Foods that refrigerate too slowly may lose quality or spoil.Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before
    placing in the refrigerator.

  • Overloading the refrigerator forces the compressor to run longer and thus increases energy consumption.

  • The shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper towels. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making the refrigerator less efficient.

  • Organize food to reduce door openings and extended searches. Remove as many items as needed at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.
