5 tips for a green fridge


A refrigerator consumes electricity 24 hours a day, difficult to do otherwise. However, some tips can save energy and also keep your device longer.

Tip # 1

  • Check the inside temperature of your refrigerator with a thermometer. It must be between 1 and 4 ° C. The door is the coldest part where milk, butter and eggs must be kept.

Tip 2

  • Do not open the door of your refrigerator too often (or too long).

Tip 3

  • Do not place your appliance next to a cooking appliance, for example an oven. One tries to get cold, the other heats, totally incompatible!

Tip 4

  • Do not store food that is still hot.

Tip 5

  • Do not let the ice settle and defrost every six months. Frost prevents the cold from circulating.

A good idea : Regularly clean the grill behind the refrigerator as it will expel the heat extracted from the appliance. It will work all the better!
