Tip & How-To about 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.
