A Greener FridgeBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
A refrigerator can be a focal point in the kitchen, as well as serving the very important purpose of keeping food fresh and cool. Unfortunately, fridges can also be big energy users. Unless you plan to build an icehouse to store your perishables, it may be time to think about a more energy-efficient fridge.
To start with, look for the ENERGY STAR label. This label indicates that a product meets energy guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy.
Over on Re-Nest, 10 fridges’ ENERGY STAR ratings are listed. Check it out–it’s a good place to start when considering replacing your refrigerator. What other attributes are important to you for looks and performance?
