Upgrade your old refrigerator

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill

Older refrigerators (pre-1993) can cost well over $150 a year to run. Those models use up to twice the energy per cubic foot, compared to modern, more efficient refrigerators. New models are quieter due to more insulation and better compressors, and food stays fresh longer with advanced temperature controls and special compartments for perishables. Replacing your old refrigerator with a high-efficiency Energy Star™ model can save over $45 a year.



what to do


Look for an Energy Star™ certified refrigerator at your local appliance store. To save the most energy, choose smallest size that will comfortably fit your family’s food storage needs.
