Thanks to recent improvements in insulation and compressors, today's refrigerators use much less energy than older models. With an ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator, you can maximize your energy and dollar savings without sacrificing the features you want.

Slash your energy bills.

ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators are required to use 20% less energy than models not labeled with the ENERGY STAR logo. Choose a new qualified model rather than a non-qualified model and cut your energy bills by $165 over the lifetime of your fridge.

Replace your old fridge for bigger savings.

If you still have a fridge from the 1980s, replace it with an ENERGY STAR qualified model and save over $100 each year on your utility bills. Replace a fridge from the 1970s and save more than $200 each year!

Protect the environment.

Nearly 70% of U.S. electricity is generated with coal and natural gas, which release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators 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.
