What’s one appliance that you use every single day? The first thing that pops into my head is my refrigerator. Every morning once I wake up, I head straight to the refrigerator to make breakfast and every single night before I head to bed I usually grab a light snack and water. I can’t even count the amount of times throughout the day that my fridge is opened and closed. It’s our one appliance that gets the most use.
When we first purchased our ENERGY STAR refrigerator, one of our top reasons was to cut our energy bill. ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators are about 9-10 percent more energy efficient than models that meet the federal minimum energy efficiency standard.
We were able to replace our old fridge for bigger savings. An estimated 170 million refrigerators and refrigerator-freezers are currently in use in the United States. More than 60 million refrigerators are over 10 years old, costing consumers $4.7 billion a year in energy costs. By properly recycling your old refrigerator and replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator, you can save between $35–$300 on energy costs over its lifetime. Use the ENERGY STAR Savings Calculator to find out exactly how much money you’ll save by replacing your existing refrigerator.
Not only did our energy bill go down but we’re helping protect the environment at the same time (without doing anything different). ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators use less energy and help us reduce our impact on the environment. If all refrigerators sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $400 million each year and 8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 750,000 vehicles.
