Fridges & Freezers are responsible for approximately 8% of energy usage for a regular household. To become more energy efficient:

  • Replace old, inefficient fridges & freezers with new, efficient units.

  • Make sure you don’t buy larger than you actually need.

  • Keep your fridge clean and defrost regulary.

  • Work out what you want from the fridge before opening the door. Don’t leave the door open for longer than necessary.

  • Locate your fridge in the coolest area of the house. Make sure the back of the fridge is well ventilated.

  • Have only one fridge and one freezer or combo if possible.
