Money Saving Tips: Increase Freezer Efficiency
Saving power when it comes to your big appliances can make a huge difference on your monthly bill.
Here are 4 easy steps you can use to improve your freezer’s efficiency:
1. Defrost and dry your freezer. This can be done about once a year.
2. Vacuum and clean. It’s good to keep the vent of your refrigerator/freezer clean. Make sure it’s free from dust and dirt so it can cool off more efficiently. Also clean in and around the freezer, paying special attention to the rubber seals. It’s important that they are free from dust and debris so they can seal the cold air in when you close the freezer.
3. Fill your freezer to capacity. A full freezer is easier to keep cold. If you don’t have enough food to fill the freezer, place the food on the sides and where it can be accessible and fill the center cavity with crumpled newspaper or any other item.
4. Keep the thermostat exposed. Also leave some air space in the fridge. This will allow the freezer to keep the correct temperature as it will be free to sense the air.
