Feature: Enercon tips on using refrigerators

Davao City (29 September) -- One home appliance used continuously 24/7, all year round is the refrigerator. But how many among us know that improper use of this appliance can result to unnecessary wasted energy. This is tantamount to higher energy consumption, and therefore higher electric bill.

With the recent power crisis still fresh in everyone's minds, the only wise thing to do is to help avert another one through prudence in the use of appliances, especially the refrigerator. Our collective efforts hopefully could make a difference.

Davao Light & Power Co. offers the following tips in order to conserve on energy when using the refrigerator and/or freezer.

Avoid leaving the refrigerator door open than necessary. Frequent open and close of its door can result to bigger electric consumption.

Check gaskets around the unit. Door and cover leaks allows cold air to escape from inside if these are not sealed. This condition not only makes the appliance work harder to maintain the right temperature, it also leads to faster deterioration of the appliance set. To check the door for air leaks, close the door on paper money. If you can slide the money out easily then you need to adjust or replace the gasket.

Place the appliance set far enough from the stove or range so that it will not be affected by the heat generated from the cooking. Install it where air can circulate freely around.

Cool food to room temperature before storing inside the refrigerator. Placing warm food in it raises the temperature inside, and consequently increases energy consumption.

Defrost your units regularly. Frost acts as an insulating blanket which causes the motor to work overtime resulting in increased power requirement.

Overcrowding your set may interfere with air circulation and overwork the compressor.

Clean periodically the compressor units and condenser coils at the back of bottom of the unit. (PIA) [top]
