Did you know that your refrigerator is a major contributor to your electric bill each year? In fact, the average refrigerator makes up nearly 13% of an electric bill. Therefore, you will want to look for simple ways to lower the cost of your refrigerator. In this video, you will learn some simple hacks to lower your electric bill.
The first hack is to keep the refrigerator full. When a refrigerator is full, there is less room for air to circulate.
This means less air particles bumping into food and transferring energy. Simply, it means that the food stays colder for longer which saves electricity. In fact, the difference can be stark. A partially full refrigerator will keep food cold for about a day if the power goes out. On the other hand, a full refrigerator could last for up to two days.
Electricians will tell you that another hack is to keep your fridge coils clean. Over time, they can accumulate dust and hair. This can greatly reduce the effectiveness of the coils. The result is you paying more money on electricity. Therefore, clean your coils about every six months to keep the refrigerator running optimally and costing you less money.
