Day 241: Tightened Door Gasket On Refrigerator

Day 241: Tightened Gasket On Refrigerator

Fixed the refrigerator door gasket to keep cool air in the fridge.

If the door gasket is open, then cold air is leaking out and energy is being wasted.

What was your simple green act for the day?

  • another energy saving tip for refrigerator users would be - making sure to keep the food covered...

  • Thanks for the tip.

    Good for you! It really makes a great deal of difference if you do small things like this around the house! Also, if you don't already know this, your refrigerator is the one appliance that uses the most energy because it has to keep cooling all day long.

    One more thing you can do is to put full gallon water bottles into your refrigerator or freezer where you don't have food. The reason for this is to absorb the cold and keep the refrigerator cold after the door has been opened. This is really helpful if you have a refrigerator that is larger than you need it to be.

    Also, if you want to check into buying a more energy efficient refrigerator here's a pretty explicit page on Energy Star rated refrigerators
