Eco-friendly refrigerator - How to use it

For a perfectly functioning refrigerator, it is important to clean the frost inside, even if the no frost ones do not present this problem thanks to the ventilation system. 

Do not put in very hot foods and drinks, which heat up the refrigerator and increase consumption for maintaining the ideal temperature. It is also a good idea to regularly clean the ventilation grilles, the internal compartment and eliminate packaging to avoid energy loss.

Open the refrigerator door as little as possible in order not to force the compressor to overwork. Avoid piling up products to allow cold air to circulate and cover liquids not to increase humidity in the appliance. The thermostat should always be set between 3 and 5°C.

To conclude, a correct use of the refrigerator allows consuming in an efficient way, with lighter bills and contributing to the reduction of harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
