How To Choose An Energy Efficient Fridge

Your fridge will be one of the most used appliances in your business. So choosing one that is not only reliable but also doesn’t run your electricity bill sky-high can alter your choices during the browsing and purchasing period. Low energy bar fridges are where it’s at for not only your business and its operating future but also reducing your energy costs in your home.

Choosing an energy efficient fridge appliance has gotten so much easier for consumers in recent years. With the heavy influences of being more sustainable and kind to our planet when it comes to our electricity usages, many fridge manufacturers have been striving to create fridges that are smarter when it comes to how much electricity they use.

So not only will you be buying a more eco-friendly and sustainable appliance, your fridge won’t be using as much electricity as previous models. Which means more money for your pocket and less for your electricity provider. However, energy efficiency has brought with it some problems, such as poor temperature control, that we need to avoid.

So how can you choose a low energy bar fridge that is reliable and does what you need it to do? Here are 2 tips to help you make the right decision.

Ensuring Your Fridge Is Brand New

Older fridges, regardless of their energy bar rating, will have less effective efficiency rates. This is just something that comes with age and usage of white goods.

How long your ‘new’ fridge has been sitting in a warehouse may also affect its true energy efficiency. How many times it has been moved around, jostled, knocked accidentally or even potentially damaged can be a deal breaker even if it’s never actually been used.

Here at Bar Fridges Perth our energy efficient fridges are truly brand new.

Most manufactured goods will have a manufactured date and although it may take a little bit of extra digging to find out how old the fridge is, it’s entirely possible to find out this date before you even lay any money on the table.

Signs Of Poor Energy Efficiency

Some low bar energy fridges save on electricity used by having long periods where the compressor is off. The compressor is essentially the heart of a fridge. It circulates the refrigerant around the refrigeration system keeping the inside of the fridge at a steady, cold temperature.

These types of low energy bar fridges can actually increase the energy needs of your fridge because when the compressor shuts off, large variations in temperature can occur so when the compressor switches back on again it has to work extra hard to re-regulate the temperatures. This can also result in ‘warm spots’ so refrigerated items may actually go off far quicker than expected. This will only result in wasted food and the need to spend extra money on the spoiled food items.

Choosing a good quality, reliable low bar energy fridge can be the cornerstone of your business, especially if you are in the service industry. Having a good energy efficient fridge can not only save you time but also a lot of money in the long run.
