Being accounted for as much as 15 to 20 percent of your home’s electric bill, there are ways you can save money using these energy saving tips.
So here’s how you can do it:
1. Choose only a refrigerator that is appropriately sized for your needs. Using too small fridge can lead it to overwork, while using too large results in potentially wasting energy as well as home space.
2. Using refrigerators with ice makers and through the door water dispensers tend to use more energy. Even though it looks cool to have one of those models but thinking about it thoroughly, it is not really a necessary feature.
3. Those frost free refrigerators and models with automatic defrosting features consume more electricity than the manual-defrost types. This features are the things you should consider when buying a new ref. Though, if you are really a busy person to be able to do manual defrosting once the ice builds up more than ¼ inch thick, then buying refrigerators with advanced features may be more economical for you.
