The fridge is one of the most important appliances in any home – it’s also one of the most commonly used! Although our fridge usually hums away without us thinking too much about it, the humble refrigerator can be a source of high energy usage and expensive bills if you don’t pay attention.
The do-all Appliance Service team have created a quick guide with some simple fridge tips that can reduce your power bills (and help the environment while you’re at it!):
Although it might be tempting to jam-pack your fridge with produce, Tupperware, and dishes, overfilling your fridge blocks air vents and increases pressure on the condenser – leading to those sky-high power bills that no one likes!
Instead of placing hot leftovers directly into the fridge or freezer, give them a chance to cool down. The less work your fridge has to do to cool food, the more money you will save on electricity costs.
Have you ever looked at the temperature control on your fridge? It is possible your fridge temp is set too low, meaning it has to work much harder – and use up much more electricity. Try keeping your fridge temperature at 4 ºC to 5ºC – this is the optimal temperature for most foods.
Refrigerator condenser coils are a small, oft-neglected (but very important!) part of the unit. These coils, sometimes located at the bottom of the fridge, play the essential role of cooling the unit and dispersing heat. Dirty coils quickly impact the performance of your fridge and should be cleaned regularly with a vacuum or coil brush.
