Your fridge is one of the most power-sucking appliances you have in your kitchen, potentially even your home. And when an appliance costs you energy, it also costs you money. If you want to keep your fridge costs low, you should follow these rules of thumb.
How to Keep Your Fridge Costs Low
Clean the Coils
If the condenser coils on your refrigerator are dirty, you’re going to make your refrigerator work harder than it has to, and cause it to use more energy and increase your utility costs. Make sure your coils get cleaned at least twice a year to keep your fridge costs low.
Check the Seal
A torn or broken seal can allow cold air to escape from your fridge and make your refrigerator work harder to keep a constant, cool temperature. If you notice your seal has any tears, replace it.
Keep the Door Closed
We know it’s probably habit to stand in front of the fridge searching for your ideal snack, but this causes cold air to leave the fridge and mess with the status temperature. Keep the door closed to avoid wasted cold air.
Keep the Fridge Full
If you’re fridge is in the fuller side, when you open it, less cold air will escape. That means your fridge won’t have to work as hard to keep a constant temperature and won’t cost you more in energy.
