How To: Reduce your refrigerator energy usage

Reduce your refrigerator energy usage

This video shows several tips that will help you cut down the electricity usage of your refrigerator. Think about what you want from the fridge before opening the door, instead of standing there with the door open while deciding what you want. Set the temperature of your fridge only as cold as necessary, and allow 24 hours for any temperature changes to take effect. Keep exterior condensation switches off unless you need them. Make sure the door gasket is clean and in good condition. Clean it with warm water and soap and replace it if necessary. Keep the coils clean by vacuuming them. Make sure the door closes by itself when you let go of it, and adjust it if necessary. These suggestions will help you save energy and money.
