We ALL want to save money and be more efficient with energy in our homes!

BELOW ARE SOME GREAT IDEAS -

  1. Refrigerator, Freezer and Fridge:
  2. Put each cooling device in a place which is as cold as possible, away from heat sources like radiators, direct sunlight or other big energy consuming devices.
  3. Check that the cooling device is at least 5cm (2 inches) away from the wall, and that the air can circulate well.
  4. Increase the inner temperature of the cooling devices. 7°C (45°F) are enough for the fridge and -18°C (0°F) are enough for the freezer.
  5. Keep the cooling devices tidy; label the items in the freezer, so that you can get to the food as quick as possible.
  6. Fill unused space with padding such as polystyrene or just a blanket.
