Fridge and freezer
Fridges and freezers are responsible for approximately 20% of the energy consumption in the home.

For this reason, it is important to use it in the best way possible.


  • Avoid cold loss. Ensure that the outline of the rubber on the door is in good condition and that the interior light turns off when the fridge door closes. Don't open the door unnecessarily and limit the amount of time that it is open.
  • Keep the refrigerator as far from heat sources as possible and do not put hot food in it.
  • Keep the back section of the apparatus well-ventilated, and leave space above it.
  • Periodically disconnect the refrigerator to avoid the build up of ice, which will render it less effective.
  • Regulate the temperature. By reducing the temperature by one degree, energy consumption is increased by 5%.
  • If possible, leave the appliance disconnected, and the doors open, if you go away.
  • Choose a refrigerator with a high energy efficiency (between A and A+++); an appliance with a rating of A+++ if more expensive but can use 80% less energy than an appliance with a D rating.
