In this article we give you some tips so you can save with your current refrigerator.
- Adapt the refrigerator and freezer to the real needs of the family group and their way of life
- Make sure it ventilates from the back
- Periodically clean the coil from the rear so that the heat released from it when the compressor operates can be dissipated
- Do not place it near sources of heat (oven, kitchen, etc.), since it can mean a 15% increase in electricity consumption
- Defrost it before a 3mm layer of ice forms. Ice is insulating (remember the Igloos) and hinders the internal cooling of the device
- The ideal temperature for the refrigerator should be between 5 and 6ºC and that of the freezer should be between -15 and -16ºC.
- Periodically check the door rubbers so that they keep the doors closed well
- When we unplug it for some time, it is better to remove the plastic trays to avoid the formation of mold
As the definition of the energy class is a bit confusing, we could say that it is an indicator of how efficient an appliance is compared to the rest of those with similar characteristics.
Thus, for example, a class A appliance consumes 55% of the energy consumed by an average appliance of the same type, while a class G appliance consumes 25% more than the average (which would be 100%).
