Fact: Refrigerators are the single biggest power drains in most
households--accounting for 9-25% of a household's total energy consumption! A
typical refrigerator made around 1990 uses about 900 kilowatt-hours per year.
Use 20-50% less energy.
Save as much as $120 per year on
your utility bill.
Reduce indoor noise.
Help the environment.
Best Features: Look for the Energy Guide label to see how much electricity,
in kilowatt-hours (kWh), the refrigerator or freezer will use in one year. The
smaller the number, the less energy it will use. When purchasing your appliance,
look for the following:
Energy Star®-labeled units
because they exceed Federal standards by at least 20%.
Top freezer models because they
use 7-13% less energy than side-by-side models.
