Refrigerator and Freezer

  • When putting your food inside the refrigerator/freezer, make sure they’re cooled to room temperature so as not to raise the temperature inside, thus decreasing power consumption.
  • Try installing your refrigerator/freezer away from your stove or range, make sure air around it can circulate well.
  • You should defrost your refrigerator/freezer consistently; frost makes the motor work harder resulting in higher consumption.
  • Regularly clean the compressor units and condenser coils at the back of the refrigerator/freezer.
  • Do not over crowd your refrigerator/freezer, this may conflict with air circulation and overwork the compressor.
  • Do not leave the refrigerator/freezer door open longer than needed.
  • Do check if there are leaks around the gasket in the door of the refrigerator/freezer. You can replace the gasket or adjust the door if there are leaks.
  • When purchasing your refrigerator/freezer, bear in mind that frost-free types consume more electricity than the standard type.
