CLEAN THE COILS BEFORE YOUR ENERGY BOILS

CLEAN THE COILS BEFORE YOUR ENERGY BOILS

Refrigerators can account for more than seventeen percent of a home’s electricity usage. So it is important to make sure it runs as efficiently as possible. As dust or pet hair accumulates under your fridge over time, it builds up on the condenser coils that help your fridge get rid of heat. This build up causes the refrigerator motor to have to work harder to stay cool and hikes up your electricity bill. Make sure these coils, underneath or behind, stay clean by brushing or vacuuming them at least twice a year. Your refrigerator could also be working harder to stay cool if your dishwasher is next to it. You can easily fix this by separating them or by installing a sheet of insulation between the two.
