Hot tips to chill out your freezer's energy waste

Freezer efficiency tips

To keep your freezer in tip-top shape, follow these simple suggestions:

  • Keep your freezer set to -18°C.

  • If it's mostly empty, keep some plastic containers full of frozen water inside to help it stay cold.

  • Remove ice buildup on the coils. Buildup makes the compressor run longer to keep cold. Removing buildup saves an average of 10% of a refrigerator's energy, which amounts to up to 60 kWh/yr. Be sure to unplug the unit before carefully cleaning the coils.
