Refrigerators and Freezers

Question: How can I reduce the amount of energy consumed by my refrigerator or freezer?

Here are some useful tips:-

- set up your fridge in a cool and well-ventilated environment where it won't be exposed to the sun or heat;

- do not put hot food or drinks in the fridge or freezer. Instead, wait until they have cooled down to room temperature;

- try to limit the amount of times you open the fridge door and always close it as soon as possible after opening;

- if you have a Fast Freezing model, try to use this function only for as long as strictly necessary;

- if you don't plan to use the fridge of freezer for an extended period of time, empty it and switch off, leaving the door ajar so that air can circulate inside.
