Energy-saving tips 

  • Keeping your fridge and freezer full helps them to retain the cold better, and they won't have to work as hard. If you don't have enough food, you can always add bags of ice or a jug of water.
  • Setting your fridge to a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius or less and making sure there's a gap of around 10cm behind your fridge will increase their efficiency by letting heat flow more easily.
