The other day I noticed that I’ve written quite a few articles in my save energy simply series about saving energy based around your fridge freezer. I thought it might be handy to collate them all together here in one post as a useful resource.
Of course, it helps to buy an environmentally friendly fridge freezer (rated A, A+ or A++ if you can afford it) when you are buying a new fridge freezer. Yet even with the most energy efficient fridge freezer, there is still a lot you can do to save energy. Here are some ideas:
Defrost your freezer regularly, especially if it doesn’t have an auto-defrost option.
Defrost your food overnight in the fridge if you can, rather than defrosting it in the microwave.
Learn how to pack your fridge and freezer efficiently.
Dust your fridge and freezer coils regularly to save a heap of energy.
Do you have any other tips for saving energy from your fridge freezer? Do share in the comments below!
