Is your refrigerator running efficiently?

Posted By MyGuy || 5-Nov-2010

Do you need to replace the old door seals on your refrigerator?

Here is a good test to try. Close the refrigerator door on a dollar bill, if you can easily pull out the dollar, you would benefit from replacing the door seals. Good seals help conserve electricity by not allowing refrigerated air to escape from your refrigerator, and will help increase its life expectancy. It is important to defrost your manual defrost freezer any time ice builds up more than a quarter inch, because the efficiency drops significantly when this happens.

The area surrounding refrigerator coils should be kept clean. They are typically dirty because it is inaccessible.

Dust and dirt build-up will increase energy usage, and could cause the unit to break down.
