"Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue, 
but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy."

Former Vice-president Cheney was incorrect, efficiency is one way to save dollars and energy; the cheapest power is that which we do not use. Here are some appliances that can help use less energy and keep a lid on your electric bill. Also visit www.aceee.org and www.energystar.gov for information about other efficient appliances.

Vestfrost Refrigerators and...

A long time favorite by many, made by Vestfrost of Denmark, these sleek and popular energy efficient refrigerators are suited for the off-grid home as well as the apartment dweller; tall and slender, their small 2' x 2' footprint will fit in most spaces.   These Vestfrost refrigerators were formerly called ConServ and are still made in Denmark and imported to the U.S. for discriminating consumers.

The Summit FFBF181ES

As of August 2013, Vestfrost has discontinued manufacture of the  stainless steel version of the above model.  However, Summit Appliance, the distributor of Vestfrost in the U.S., has come out with a replica of the Danish stainless-steel refrigerator. Check it out by clicking on the link to the left.


Useful Information

The average refrigerator consumes more energy than any other household appliance. We spend over $10 billion in the U.S., alone, to supply energy to our household refrigerators. The following tips will save you money and reduce your carbon (energy) footprint:

1) Clean the filter and coils annually: Most Americans rarely, if ever, get around to vacuuming out the filter and coils on the back of the fridge. A dusty coil can increase energy consumption by 20 percent or more.

2) Keep it full but not stuffed: A fridge and freezer will be able to retain their coolness better if they're full. If you're not at full capacity, place a few containers of water in the 'fridge or bags of ice in the freezer.

3) Think about what you want before you open the fridge. Every time you open the fridge to browse for a snack, you consume around 9 to 13 watt/hours, which is enough power to light a 60-watt bulb for 10 minutes.

4) Let hot items cool before placing them in the refrigerator.

5) Defrost the freezer regularly.

6) Check the door gaskets for a tight seal.

7) Cover liquids and foods stored in the refrigerator. Uncovered foods release moisture and make the compressor work harder.

8) If your fridge is older than 1993, get a new one. You're spending so much on your electric bill, you'll actually save money. New models use less energy than a 75-watt light bulb. Be sure to look for the Energy Star label (www.energystar.gov and www.aceee.org for more information).
