Refrigeration Tricks & Tips

Refrigeration Tricks & Tips

 

When purchasing a new fridge you need to be considerate of a few things in order to make sure that the fridge is operating efficiently.

Firstly, keeping your fridge clean will certainly help to keep your food fresh. Cleaning up spills will ensure the fridge is dirt free and your door continues to seal properly. A solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water to clean the interior, shelves, and a seal is highly recommended. It will also remove any odours left behind by food and eradicate any stubborn stains on your shelving and storage compartments.

Toothpaste is brilliant for scrubbing up dull seals enabling them to have a glistening look with an immaculate shine.

Overfilling your appliance will have some detrimental effects on your fridge. This is because it will reduce the capability of cool air to move amongst the food and reduce its efficiency. Also,  thawing frozen food in the fridge compartment will help to keep the temperature low and save energy. 

One key tip that seems to go unnoticed is rotating the food in your fridge. This is very effective as having the food with the closest expiry date at the front will help to decrease the amount of wasted food. Rotation of food in the fridge will also help to save you money on replacing your food and on your energy bill; you can easily access food quickly without leaving the door open for extended periods of time.

Poor maintenance can increase condensing temperature or reduce evaporating temperature by several degrees, resulting in an increase in energy use of up to 10%.

For some organisations refrigeration costs can represent over 50 per cent of their energy bill, which could be a huge cost for small businesses who can’t afford to incur those kinds of costs. Hence, a modern and energy-efficient refrigeration system will help to cut costs on your energy bill. Reducing air infiltration is a good method to keep the refrigeration systems maintained to a good standard. This can be done by improving door management, using night blinds or strip curtains and switching off lights in the cooled space.

Furthermore, another key tip for optimal refrigeration is to protect your fridge from high heat sources. This is due to the fact that the compressor kicks into high gear when it’s near sources of heat. Not only does this cause your fridge to work harder, it’s a waste of energy and may even shorten the lifespan of the appliance. 

   

Thus, when you are initially designing your kitchen try to keep your refrigerator away from the: oven, dishwasher and any other appliance that may omit high levels of heat. It’s also smart to keep it out of prolonged amounts of direct sunlight in order to prevent it from working in overdrive. 

Therefore, if you haven’t been looking after your refrigeration systems why not get Pretty Cool Customers to look after your kit with a preventative maintenance contract.
