Refrigerator and Freezer

The refrigerator is the kitchen appliance that consumes the most energy. In concrete terms, 19% of the electricity bill comes from its use.
Here we give you some key advice that will help you to save energy and thus save on your bill.

How can I save while using the refrigerator and freezer?


  • Avoid losses of cooling: check that the seal on the edge of the door is in good condition and that the interior light turns off when closing the refrigerator.

  • Do not put hot food in the refrigerator or freezer. If you go on vacation, disconnect it and leave the doors open.

  • In order to lower your energy bill, choose high energy efficiency electrical appliances (class A, A+, A++ and A+++). A class A+++ refrigerator can consume up to 80% less energy than a class D refrigerator.
