In fact, it’s one of the most significant factors in the operating expenses of a business, but you can save big with energy-efficient upgrades. You’ll also be creating a more comfortable, pleasant, and productive work environment for your employees to do what they do best.

Refrigerator and Freezer

Tips for replacing your refrigerator

Purchase an appropriately sized refrigerator. Generally, the larger the refrigerator, the greater the energy consumption.

Consider buying a refrigerator with fewer doors. Fewer doors reduce the air leakage. To maximize your savings, minimize the number of doors and pay attention to cool air you can feel when you shut the doors. Make sure the seals around the doors are airtight. If they are not, replace them.

Consider what type of refrigerant different models use. Some refrigerants are better than others when it comes to Global Warming Potential (i.e., the degree to which they contribute to global warming when released into the air). R-600a and R-441a are low GWP refrigerants. While information on refrigerant type is somewhat limited for older models, many new models provide the refrigerant type. Available information on ENERGY STAR certified consumer refrigeration product models is compiled here.

Consider replacing your older refrigerators. Refrigerators over 15 years old could be costing you more than $80 per year to run. Replace old units with new ENERGY STAR certified models. On average, an old refrigerator uses about 35% more energy than a model that has earned the ENERGY STAR.

Recycle your old refrigerator. If you buy a new refrigerator, be sure your old one is properly disposed of. Many appliance retailers will pick up and recycle what they safely can of your old refrigerator when you purchase a new one.
