Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

Save energy and your appliances...i.e. air cond and refrigerators

This is just a simple tip that will help you save energy and make your high dollar appliances last longer. This tip applies to refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and furnaces.

All of these appliances work on the theory of heat transfer. To have a good heat transfer, you must have proper air flow. If the air flow is incorrect, the thermostat tells the appliance to keep running because it has not achieved the desired temperature.

If you have filters on your a/c and furnace, change them at least every 3 months. When you change them, if they seem excessively dirty, then change them more often. The outside condesing unit that sits in your yard should be free from grass clippings. Make sure you disconnect the power before you hose this unit down.

On your refrigerators and freezers, take a vacuum cleaner and **** the dirt from the vent and coil near the bottom of the unit.also the coil located on the rear of the unit. These are the coils that absorb and reject the heat.

This simple task will save you on energy costs in the long run and cut down on the running time of your appliances.

I need energy star rating for kenmore refrigerator #795.71309.012


The 795.71309.012 was built by LG for the Kenmore line. You can buy a copy of the Energy Star Rating label from Sears Parts Direct or other appliance parts store for a few dollars. It is part number MEZ62603802; see http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/MEZ62603802/0046/795/Model-79571309012/0582/0161000?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=F1201020&diagramPageId=00004&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=79571309012&subCompDesc=Refrigerator%20parts%20%28pantry%29&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR&blt=11&shdMod= .

Unfortunately the 795.71309.012 is not listed at the EPA Energy Star site any more. (It's no longer qualified due to changes in the energy efficiency requirements.)

I wish that I could be of more assistance.

why shuld we save electricity


The argument for 'saving electricity' is saving at 'peak' times so additional generators don't have to be started up to meet peak demand. The additional generators are smaller, they cost more to run per Kilowatt generated.

A second argument for saving electricity is so we can continue expanding our economy by adding new homes and businesses, without needing to build another electric generation plant.

A third argument for saving electricity is your bill is lower.

The Kvar product you posted under is a scam. If you want to reduce electric bill, consume less electricity.
