A 'Cool' Way to Greenify

October 22, 2008

Have you looked in the company refrigerator for ways to Greenify?  That old fridge may be making things more comfortable for your employees, but sucking the life out of your efforts to make your company greener.
 
A refrigerator is one of the highest energy consuming appliances in most workplaces.  So let's talk about how to lower that energy bill. 

First off, consider where it is kept.   It's rather like Goldilocks and her three bears: it shouldn't be too hot, too dry, or too humid. Keep away from windows so that it's not exposed to sunlight. 

Also make sure there is plenty of room for ventilation around the unit.  About 4 inches on each side and in the back, with 11-12 inches clearance above.
 
Make sure the door isn't open too often.  And also go around the rubber seals once a month with a warm, sudsy cloth to ensure the seals work better longer.  If the door isn't completely close, you are wasting energy.
 
Defrost your refrigerator regularly.  A thick layer of ice forming in the freezer can lessen energy efficiency as the compressor has to use more electricity to keep the refrigerator cool.  Doing this will also prolong the life of the appliance.

And don't overload the fridge because that cuts off the air circulation, lowering efficiency and eating up electricity.  If you're going to be away for awhile, clean out the refrigerator, unplug it, and open the door.  You can extend the life of your refrigerator, lower your bills, and help Greenify all by checking what's in the fridge.
