Here are some energy saving tips when using your refrigerator:
1)Don't leave the door open! Every time you open the door the temperature goes up and your fridge works harder and therefore uses more energy.
2)Let hot dishes cool before you put them in the fridge.
3)Locate your refrigerator away from the stove and other heat producing appliances.
4)Buy a refrigerator that is only as big as your family needs. Bigger fridges take up more energy.
5)Don't put uncovered liquids in the fridge. They give off vapors that make the compressor work harder.
If you use these tips you will be able to save energy!
