Coronavirus COVID-19 (latest announcement): Our commitment to you

Improvements in insulation and compressors mean today's freezers consume much less energy than older models. Select an ENERGY STAR qualified freezer for maximum energy savings and the latest features.

Cut your utility bills.

An ENERGY STAR qualified freezer uses 10% less energy than a new, non-ENERGY STAR qualified model.

The older the freezer, the higher your bills.

If you purchased your freezer before 1993, it is costing you an extra $35 each year on your utility bills compared to a new ENERGY STAR qualified model. If you bought it in the 1980s, it's costing you an extra $70 each year.

Protect the environment.

Nearly 70 percent of U.S. electricity is generated with coal and natural gas, which release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. ENERGY STAR qualified freezers use less energy and help us reduce our impact on the environment.

More Energy-Saving Tips

  • Make sure the door seals are airtight.
  • Allow air to circulate around the condenser coils by leaving a space between the wall or cabinets and the refrigerator.
  • Also, keep the coils clean.
  • Position your refrigerator away from any heat sources, such as an oven, dishwasher or direct sunlight from a window.
  • Keep your refrigerator 35-38°F and your freezer at 0°F.
  • Minimize the amount of the time the refrigerator door is open.
