There are various appliances that one uses in today’s time to make the work easy and avoid wastages. One of the appliances is a refrigerator, being used in every house nowadays. This helps in preserving the things which are being left or fruits and vegetables for a longer duration. This appliance consumes a lot of energy to save these things, but this could be made more productive and efficient –
Cool off the food items – Before keeping anything inside the refrigerator, it is always best to cool off the item. By doing this, it will help in reducing the consumption of energy. By cooling the thing, heat is not added to the inner side of appliances. If the food item is hot, then a refrigerator has to use more energy to cool that thing. Along with it, if the food items are kept in the refrigerator by covering it, then it will not allow the heat that is remaining in a food item to reduce the cooling level of it.
Do not open the doors – Whenever required, then only the doors of a refrigerator should be opened. It is not right to open the door often, as it will reduce the cooling effect of it. Even after opening the door and starting to talk in front of it would not be right. As it is a wastage of energy, the cool air will escape from a refrigerator, and thus more energy is being used to produce that cooling effect on it.
Organize the refrigerator properly – The racks inside the refrigerator should be organized properly. In one of the racks, all the things should not be cluttered as then; it will take more time to find a thing. It should be kept in such a way that it is easy to find and take out the things easily. If a user were able to find and take the food items easily, then there would be less escape of cool air from the refrigerator, which will make it consume less energy.
Regular defrosting – It is best to defrost the refrigerator from time to time. When the frost is being built in the refrigerator, then it takes a lot of energy to cool, and that becomes costly. Even if the refrigerator is not being defrosted from time to time, then it could put a lot of pressure on the machine or coil. This could make it work more and thus can ruin the machinery of a refrigerator. So, with regular defrosting, the mechanics of the refrigerator will have less pressure as well as not more energy will be consumed.
If the proper care of the refrigerator is being taken, then it can save a lot of energy. This will highly reduce the bill of electricity, or the natural resources would be saved. Some refrigerators come with a different energy star rating; more the star rating is on the refrigerator indicates that it will consume less energy and are more efficient in usage.
